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.

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…

Six Sentence Story: Burst

The moment the church organist started playing the introduction to the hymn, the precocious toddler girl stood up on the pew. Music just moved her, and she was doubly excited when she realized she recognized the tune. Though everyone around her was opening a hymnal and finding the right page, that was unnecessary for her. 
First of all, she couldn't read, but second, even if she could read, she didn't need the words; they were etched into her memory. Finally, the organist finished the introduction and the chorister signaled the congregation to begin, but while the rest of the church-goers sang, "Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing," the sweet little girl belted out, "Go tell Aunt Rhody." By the time she got to the line about the old grey goose being dead, all decorum was lost as those around her burst out laughing.

Six Sentence Story: Release

Her small brow furrowed in concentration as she carefully placed the wriggling worm on the little hook. 

"Ready, Daddy!" she called, and Daddy came over and helped her cast the line into the lake. To the amazement of both of them, soon the bobber took a dip into the water. Daddy talked her through reeling the keeper-sized fish onto the shore.

"I'll name him Lucky, because he is lucky I caught him!" she proudly announced.

Lucky's luck ran out, though, when he realized this wasn't going to be a catch-and-release situation.
