My Love ~ David

1378545_two_heart_shaped_flower_petalsDavid and I don’t really get into the “normal”  Valentine’s Day activities.  I find Valentine’s Day to be full of pressure and unrealistic expectations. It is sometimes funny to watch the ladies and students in the building I work around Valentines Day. They have to compare their flowers and other gifts to those that others received. Their goal seems to be to make sure that they got the biggest and best gift of the bunch.  It is sad to see the hurt in their eyes when their flowers or gifts don’t measure up to the gifts that others have received. I told David years ago that flowers and gifts on Valentines Day do not count. The gifts and flowers that I appreciate the most are the ones given for no reason.

While we don’t normally exchange presents, or go out on this day I do like to show my wonderful husband a little bit of blog love, and let the world know how I feel about him. I am so glad that I get to spend my life with him.

David is a great husband. He always puts my wants, needs, and desires above his own. He never complains and is so easy going. When I mess up in some way he never makes a big deal about it, he just tries to find a way to fix or repair the issue.

He is helpful around the house in many ways. He helps almost nightly with dinner preparations and cleanup after our meals. If I’m too tired to cook at the end of a long day at work, he does not complain. If the laundry is piled up he does not complain or criticize, he just helps to get it under control. 

He works harder than he should in order to provide for our family. He sometimes leaves work early and then works  late into the night just so he can have some time to spend with the family in the evenings. He always makes time to make time for the family even when he is under tight deadlines at work. Family is important to him and it shows in his actions and that is just one of the many things I love about him.

He is kind, loving and patient with our children. Somedays require more kindness, love and patience than other days.

I’m grateful for David. Today we celebrate love, and I am very happy that God gave me David to love. We have been married almost 24 years. I don’t know how it happens but somehow I love him more and more as time goes by. 

Happy Valentines Day, David my one true love.
