You and I

You have been married to me for 17 years.
I have been married to my best friend for 17 years.
You are almost 40 29.
I am still on 27.
You calm me.
I am the excitement of your life.
You are wrapped around the pinky of not one, but two little girls.
I have the privilege of being the woman of your life.
You have good taste.
I am living proof.
You have wit and wisdom.
I am not just referring to your gray hair.
You make me feel beautiful.
I am glad you see the truth.
You leave your wedding ring on and it's scratched up.
I like that.
You give great hugs.
I love being hugged.
You are my sunshine.
I light up your life, too.
You love that we homeschool.
I love homeschool and so do our girls.
You sometimes watch me sleep.
I watch you sleep too, since you snore.
You carry our sleepy girls.
I let you.
You have musical skills.
I have a beautiful voice to accompany you.
You are sharing them with our girls.
I encourage that.
You reach out to hold my hand.
I still remember the first time you asked to hold my hand.
You are fun to sing with... especially the 'made-up' songs.
I think you like to make up songs because you can't remember the words.
You make me laugh... loud.
I like that.
You get the mail.
I throw away the junk mail.
You remind me of God's goodness and grace.
I am His favorite.
You never complain about my health quirks.
I don't have any health quirks. ;)
You fix the house.
I paint the house.
You are sorely missed when you're away.
I hate to be away from you.
You call just to check on me.
I like that you are so addicted to me.
You have a great sense of direction.
I like to call you my own little GPS.
You are a great daddy.
I know, I know... I am the world's greatest mommy.
You wear the pants in the family.
I tell you which ones to wear.
You are adventurous.
I am by your side on the adventure.
You are my best friend.
I am the apple of your eye.
You are loved.
I definitely am.
