Why Mary Anne is the Best Thing that Ever Happened to Me!

Today is the celebration of St. Valentine. Legend/history has it that he was martyred February 14, 270. He was beaten and then beheaded. I don't know how that translates into hearts and slinky lingerie - but I'll take it.

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.

Hehe, thanks for sharing to us how awesome your wife is.

You'll have to drop some wisdom to us younger guys to keep the marriage tip top shape!
