I got my husband this really cool wall hanging for Christmas that says “I love you because” on it and then there is a box where there is room to write the reason you love them. It comes with a dry erase marker and you just write on the glass and wipe it off when you’re ready to write something new.
Well, he said he liked it and I told him we should hang it in our bathroom so we could see it all the time and we can write back and forth to each other. And we have been doing just that! I love it! Not only has it caused me to be consciously thinking about why I love my husband throughout each day, but it’s fun to see what he comes up with and writes on there too!
So, why is love a funny thing? Because when you’ve been married for a long time (we’ve been married almost 23 years) you realize that all those lists that people create for what makes a good husband and what makes a good wife are all well and good but it’s sometimes the quirky things that really makes you love and appreciate the person that you’re with. Some of the things that make me love my husband are things you can’t really write down in a list. Of course there are the typical things such as good provider, gentleman, good father, etc. – and he is all of these. But there’s so much more that only I see and only I know and that’s what makes it special. And because my husband is such a goofball – love is a funny thing around here. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. I sure do love that man!
