Why Mary Anne is the Best Thing that Ever Happened to Me!
February is the love month, so I am going to talk about the love of my life: Mary Anne. Here is how she has changed me, and why I say wives can be a great thing if you get the right one!
Food: She is a great cook, and I am never nervous about anything that she puts on the table. She knows the 2 or 3 things I don't like a lot, and the one thing I won't eat.
Hanging Out: Whenever we get to be alone, whether it's a walk on the beach, a few hours out for Chinese, or our after dinner coffee, it's what I like the best.
Team: In finances, most of the time in parenting and life goals, I know I can count on her. We don't agree on everything, and don't always work well in the kitchen together, but for the important stuff, she is right there.
She Knows Me: She works at trying to please me. Sure, we have made some mistakes - we didn't really like a couple of places that we've lived - and we are working on a solution together.
She is a Great Mom: My daughter Charlotte adores her, and aspires to be like her. They talk about owning a farm together some day. (I thought we had one in the kitchen with 3 dogs, 4 bunnies (no dear, they were not both males!) and 9 more in the basement!)
She is Patient: All I can say is that this a very good thing - my personality is a bit driven.
She Has Great Faith: She was raised Catholic, and just doesn't understand wavering faith. "God it there, I know, that settles it.", best describes her view.
She Has Wisdom: She is wise enough to work at making sure that problems don't surprise us.
She is Affectionate: She enjoys hugs and kisses, and dispenses them regardless of the situation. She created Xs and Os!
She is GOOD Looking!
I couldn't have done any better.
