about your BS?

My list today:

His ability to make anyone, regardless of ones occupation or class, feel accepted and appreciated.

His quirky sense of humor. Most people wouldn't understand it or think it's funny. But he makes me laugh. And we have fun.

How he isn't ashamed to watch sappy Jane Austen movies with me on his days off.

His strength. How he is able to take the pressure of providing for our family daily, plus handle the emotional trauma of FOO and my As is beyond me. I can see the exhaustion in his eyes, yet he marches on.

The way he smells when we go on dates. That cocktail of cologne mixed with his skin? Fragrance of the gods. *swoon*

His willingness to work on this relationship with me. Lord knows it would have been much easier for him to cut his losses and walk away. Yet here he is.

How he allowed me to download Avocado on both our phones, promptly sent me hugs and kisses thru it, and continues to do so daily. Corny? Maybe. We love it.

His integrity. Nuff said.

Her unselfishness when it comes to wanting to make others happy.

Her soft and subtle curves.

Her uncanny ability to brew the perfect pot of coffee.

Her eyes...which before were electric and life and vibrancy, yet now are clouded and filled with sadness instead.

I Love her huge eyes, especially when she smiles.

I Love her huge breasts too, they make me smile.

I Love the way the corner of her mouth smiles in the morning when she is barely awake and I kiss her.

I Love her wicked sense of humor.

I Love seeing the excitement in her face when she sees wildlife on our nature outings and in the backyard.

I Love how Freaking Adorable she is.

I Love her strength.

I Love how hard she tries in our relationship.

-his body and the way it feels when I snuggle next to him.

-the way he thinks himself through a crisis... he's a strategizer. I'm impulsive.

-he's a financial genius

-his hair -a full head of blonde hair at age 51, but the beard is getting grey and I think it's cute.

-how our DDs have him wrapped around their fingers - still, at age 24.

-when he folds clothes he folds my underwear, even though I've told him many times to just throw them in the drawer... he still folds them. ha!

-how he loads the dishwasher. it has to be done with mathematical precision. I just gave up because he would reload it anyway. So, I NEVER have to do that job!

-when we have pets he cleans up after them because he still misses the "chores" he had when he grew up on a farm.

Her ability to see the good in me, and to believe in me, even when I have been unable to do either of those things for myself, for her, and for us.

Her brains.

Her generosity.

Her unconditional love.

Her strength.

Her patience.

Her selflessness.

Her class.

Her ability to truly forgive ("Forgiveness isn't for wimps")

Her cooking.

Her laugh.

Her heart.

Oh, and those long slender legs supporting the tall beautiful drink of water that is her...capped off by intelligent, deep blue pools for eyes...and an easy smile that lights up the world around her.

JD

Oh, and she watches sappy Jane Austen movies with me, though I draw the line at her requests for me to put on a white dress shirt, dive into a murky pond, and emerge matted and wet like Colin Firth in the BBC's legendary 1995 "Pride & Prejudice".

This is an excellent thread idea!

Her voice. It's beyond beautiful. I love that it's the first and last thing I hear every day.

Her intellect. It is stunning how smart she is. Know that feeling you get when you're next to a generator? That thrumming energy? That's what it's like watching her think.

Her optimism. She sees the best in everyone and every situation. The exact opposite of what I've spent most of my time doing. I am endlessly grateful that she helps me to see the beauty in everything.

Her beauty. She's ridiculously gorgeous. There are times (S.D. beach) that I literally can see nothing else but her and am left stunned and breathless by how lovely she is. How lucky I am.

Watching her interact with our kids is a thing of glory. She's so natural, so effortless in everything she does. She can win anyone over with ridiculous ease.

The connections she makes are lightning quick. She'll often predict things before they happen. Being near her is like being near a high energy reactor. That thrumming power is exactly the same.

Her openness of perspective. This bears some explaining: She questions everything but does it without any sort of agenda or bias for her own stake in it. This humility allows her to make those connections that I mentioned. Its something I greatly admire and struggle to imitate.

As freely as she accepts information, sifting it like a gold rush miner, she gives it without seeking the implant a personal agenda. It's something so rare that for a long time I couldn't (or rather was to arrogant to) accept it. It has been such a blessing to the lives of everyone around her.

Seeing her apply her skills to anything she sets her mind to. She always excels at everything she does.

Her love for me. I am humbled and amazed by the depths of her love for me. She proves this every day through her words and actions. I am so grateful for her. Even through all of this I often find her comforting me.

She is a wonderful, amazing person. I could not be happier than when I am with her.

Literally lol'd JD. BTW, that's the best P&P adaption. Just finished Persuasion. That was interesting.

Love reading everyone's list and the standard "These are just a few" disclaimers.

Jane Austen is worth a quick t/j. The 1996 made for TV "Emma" with Kate Beckinsale and Mark Strong is really good. His proposal scene is so damn romantic. And she can say more with a turned up eyebrow or lip flutter than many actresses can with their own entire bodies, and their body double's bodies.

There's a great book about the making of the P&P adaptation which goes into the casting, the production, set design and location choices, the dialogue, the dance scenes, etc. etc. Jennifer Ehle was a controversial choice, and Colin StudFirth was a nearly unknown who couldn't ride. He, btw, was on Leno once and I have rarely seen such a self effacing, truly funny dude. Just spun some great stories, funny as heck, about moving into a new home in London, and getting locked out in the backyard naked and the neighbor he's never met's cat coming over, and the neighbor yelling "here, kitty, kitty". And the cat going "Meow, meow" from Firth's side of the fence...well, you get the picture. But the book is great, really interesting. Amazing what they put into that production.

And how about this for putting it all on the line, for love. Mr. Darcy, on like fourth down and 42, down 6 points with the Super Bowl on the line, busts out to Miss Bennett:

"You are too generous to trifle with me. If your feelings are what they were last April (Note: when she rejected a prideful and prejudiced marriage proposal from Darcy) you must tell me so at once. My affections and wishes are unchanged. (Pause) But one word from you will silence me on this subject forever".

Spoiler Alert: He marries the girl.

End t/j

That he is him and nobody else. I love that no one else gets to know him and love him like I do. I love that he is himself always. I love him for who he is, what he's done and whatever he will do. I love him for being our sons best role-model for being a husband, a father and a man. I love him because he exists. I love him because he is him and nobody else.
