Another Year of Us


Today we have been married 11 years. I read thru my post from last year on "The Story of Us", and there really isn't more I can add except to the list of things I love about Allen. I know I give him grieve but only because we he knows I'm just giving him a hard time. He has been my friend when I felt there were no others. He is the love of my life and I'm so thankful for the gift that the Lord gave me in him. And in him I find it all the more sweeter for all that I had to endure to find him.
-He really tries to get me anything I even mention I might like.
-He has way more patience with me than I deserve.
-He makes me feel safe. I know we could survive in the wilderness indefinitely.
-He touches my back gently almost every time he walks by me.
-He isn't afraid of wearing the pants and knows he is the leader.
-He has grown so much this past year thru many trials and came out shining brighter than before.
-He is a good man, good father and good husband when he didn't have a good example growing up.
-He loves being self-employed.
-He lays down his life and wants for the best of the family most of the time.
-His skin is weathered from working out in the bitter cold and scorching heat year round.
-He takes the kids with him to work when he can.
-If he's late, I don't have to worry about where he is, just if he's ok.
-He loves it when I don't dress up or wear make-up but tells me how pretty I am when I do.
-He doesn't care if I've spent the day playing with the kids rather than picking up house.
-He won't allow there to be questions and doubts about us homeschooling. He is 100% in favor.
-He is a command man and knows what he wants.
-He is a stable man and doesn't make rash decisions or emotional ones.
-He wears Cowboy Cut Wranglers, long sleeve button up shirts and boots better than anyone.
-He loves to help others.
-When he gives without receiving a thank you, he lets it go.
-When he is wronged or hurt by others, he lets it go.
-He would gladly give his life for us and be proud to do so.
-He chooses to do the right thing.

I love you Allen. Thank you for loving me for all this time.

Oh, my!! Well, I got a little teary because I'm ridiculous like that. I blame Shania. Anyway--BEAUTIFUL! And the picture of Allen and the girls!!!!! I've never seen that picture. It was the straw that broke the camel's back, er, induced the sweet water works.

Suzanne, that is beautiful and I could say pretty much the same thing about my husband. We are truly blessed and what I love about you is you realize that! So many wives sit around and grumble and complain about their husbands rather than focusing on the positives and counting blessings. Alan is blessed to have you as his wife. Happy Anniversary!!!
