If there is something you wanted, now is the time to ask...


Dear Husband,

If there is something you wanted, now is the time to ask.

Perhaps it is because our first born told me this morning that I am the best part of his world and he learned to talk to me like that from you. Maybe it is because you just took the boys for the weekend to let me see my best friend and her baby-- and never complained once. Maybe it's because when you called me while I was with her you complimented my cackle laugh instead of quickly trying to get off the phone. Perhaps it is because you had the house spotless when I came back. Or per chance it is because you give me magic kisses that protect me from getting 'frozen' by the boys when I am trying to make dinner.

Maybe it is that you listen, talk, and laugh with me. Or the sparkle you get in your eye during tickle fights (yes, I know you are not really fighting back, but it makes me feel strong anyway). It's perhaps that you still open the doors and drive because I like you to. Or maybe it is that you let me pick out the flavors at Yogurtland. It is quite possibly that you take pictures of me and photoshop them to look like I am on the red carpet. And it is certainly that you have kept your word and not posted on the internet the psuedo Pantene commercial you made. Or it could be the way you are beaming as much as Max when you read Calvin and Hobbes together. I think it has a lot to do with your camping in the backyard with your little boys and making S'mores and playing board games.

Whatever it is, today I know I'm the luckiest and the best part of my world is you too. So thank you for marrying me six years ago, sticking it through three kids (and even more, three pregnancies). You are my sunshine, so go ahead and ask, now would be a good time!

Love it, love it, love it! Sounds like you have a great guy (as you should, since you are a fantastic girl!) I'll have you know, this post made me cry a little - not that that's saying much right now, but it did all the same.
