I Love: My Husband

Yarn Give Away here!

Today is my husband's birthday. We never really hit it big on birthdays; I bought him two Whoopie Pies, a bookmark, and an "I Love You" card.


We met on Yahoo Personals. Really. I saw his picture and something just clicked. He was the only person that I contacted (that didn't contact me). On our first date, I knew I would marry him. He says he knew the same thing about me. We made out like bandits for hours on that date. He didn't want to leave and I didn't want him to, but he did. But that's okay, since we've had plenty of time together since then!


I was 32 when we met. I never thought I'd ever fall in love, much less get married. I hadn't dated much, no one ever seemed interested in me (or I heard "You're just to smart, successful, intimidating, etc., for me"). Yes, I was the Big V when I met Tim, which is something amazing to have shared with him. I just couldn't figure out what the hack was so wrong with me that I never had dates and had no conceivable prospects. You know on those hyper-violent video games where people have limbs made of chainsaws or the like? Well, every time someone said to me, "He'll come along someday, you just have to be patient, and then you'll never know what hit you," I wanted to cut them in half with my chainsaw arm; I hated hearing that (for the millionth time) so much!


Then he did. And I didn't know what hit me. We've been married long enough now to have weathered some pretty major storms together; we've come out stronger as a couple. We've formed bonds as parents, friends, and lovers. He is my sexy mon (as I like to say). He is a wonderful Dad (I honestly think he would kill for his children or for me), a man with a heart that strives to be filled with the love of Jesus, and a person who would help you with anything he could.


He will be embarrassed by this post. And dislike the fact that I have placed pictures of him online. He doesn't like the attention. He's a very humble guy, but he would never admit any of these positive qualities about himself to anyone else. He's come a long way in his life; he is an amazing guy. I Love my Husband.
