25 Years, Infinite Reasons (But I'll Give You 25)



In no particular order:

25.  He introduced himself as an engineering major, "by default."  First of all, you have to be smart to be in engineering, but secondly, that's funny--and I love smart and funny!

24.  I can be myself around him.

23.  He never criticizes my cooking--even when there is just cause.

22.  He plans fun dates.

21.  He values my opinions.

20.  He says "thank you."

19.  He holds doors for me.

18.  He ignores my weaknesses.

17.  Daily, he tells me and shows me he loves me.

16.  I can lean on him when I'm exhausted.

15.  He encourages me to pursue my interests--even when that means allowing a 4-legged shedding machine into our home!

14.  We are equal partners.

13.  We enjoy many of the same things.  I've learned to appreciate a good movie crash scene; he will suggest we visit Disneyland.

12.  He held down the fort while I was on bed rest.

11.  He is committed both to the institution of marriage and to me.

10.  He gives me courage to try new things.

9.  He is a great dad for our kids.

8.  He is dependable--at work, at church, at home.

7.  His twinkly-eyed smile melts my heart.

6.  He doesn't show his exasperation when I finish his sentences.

5.  He is confident, but not conceited.

4.  He is my best friend.

3.  We share common goals.

2.  He inspires me to be a better person.

1. I love him, and I'm looking forward to spending time and all eternity with him.

Thankful thought:  Happy anniversary, John!  I bet the next 25 years will be just as fun as the past 25.

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
