Call me crazy, call me old fashioned, call me antiquated, call me antifeminist(I’m not)….I call me happy. I am an entrepreneur however I am also a wife, mom and just a plain ole’ woman:) There are days in my business where I do not have to be up early and instead of getting up frantically with my husband to get the girls ready I can lay in bed a little longer. I lay there and watch my husband come back from his shower all fresh and clean with his body glistening with water and his hair damp on his head and his towel wrapped around his waist. I watch him…I watch him drop the towel….and proceed to put his clothes on while nonchalantly asking me about the jobs we have on the schedule. Sometimes he will drop the towel and ask “do we have time”…knowing that we don’t and the kids are up and in the other room but it brings a smile to my sleepy face.
I love the feeling that I get thinking about how hard he works to make sure our family is ok. I love knowing that even though he sometimes doesn’t understand the mental pressure that I am under that he does know I hate to do dishes and he does them more often than not. I feel taken care of, loved, appreciated and admired.
Omg!!! He makes me so mad sometimes because we think so different. I am the “we are gonna do this” person and he is the “how are we going to do this” person. I am the “just do it” person and he is the “where are the resources to do it” person. This has been the case since the beginning of our relationship and it is the reason I am still sane and it is also the reason he has more fun in his life.
I love that warm and comfy feeling I get when he spoons me. I love that flutter in my heart when I hear the garage open signaling he is home. I love having a loving father for my children. I love that even though I work outside the home there are just some things that I just don’t and don’t have to do…i.e. fix things, take out the trash, get up when there is a strang sound in the middle of the night and pick up heavy stuff.
I love being a wife. Why would a guy want to be with or marry a woman whose mantra is “I don’t need a man.” Words are powerful. In reality we all can figure out how to get along without a partner in life but life is so much sweeter with someone to love and someone who loves you.
I know some people have had love and lost it or maybe something happened to their special person but those memories of their loved one is still special. I pray that everyone finds love and that that love will endure forever.
I love being still in love after 12 years of marriage. Happy Valentines Day Morgan!
