I know I just blogged, BUT.....

This is a quickie post giving the love to my husband.  We are going on a "couple's retreat"  of sorts, and I'm tellin  ya it's needed lol.....just to get away and spend some quality time together.  That's right....quality time.  I think sometimes in the midst of trying to figure out who I really am on a daily basis, I forget that I need to also pay attention to who my husband is.  Yes, he is cantankerous, awnry, stubborn, beligerent, and a bit aggrivating......but more than that he is funny, kind, masculine (rar!), generous beyond measure, patient-ish, and sincere.  (notice how I didn't place my faults in there....I'm trying to keep this one short, kids)

It's hard to admit, but a lot of the time I tend to overlook his amazing qualities not only as a husband and strong provider, but as a man.  A man's man.  Someone who is able to kill a spider, change my oil, build ANYthing, and still be able to melt my heart just by holding my hand.  He is quietly compassionate and overtly my he-man.  I love him....for all the things he does, and for all the things he brings out in me.  It's sad that I don't always acknowledge it on a daily basis as he is always the in and day out.  Maybe that's it.....I take him for granted......but don't we all? 

3-12-06.......4 years ago I let him call me his girlfriend for the first time after 2 years of me asking about him, and the previous 2 weeks of him asking me, "are you my girlfriend yet?!"  I saw in him then so many amazing things that made my head spin.....and I see all of those things and so much more today.

I love you, meme.
