This year I didn’t have any money to buy you an expensive gift. I didn’t even have money to buy you an inexpensive gift. So I decided I would make you a homemade gift. This week I have been randomly writing things I love about you when they pop in my head, then I added them to this draft post. I know sometimes I have a hard time expressing myself and my feelings. So here is a list of so many reasons why I love you so completely. How my life would never be the same without you in it. I want to thank you for being my husband and for giving me three of the most beautiful boys I could ever imagine. This is my heaven on earth. You, and my other three boys.
Well without further ado…..
Things I love about you:
I love that you make such an effort to spend time with me. You make me feel like I’m valuable, important.
I love that you eat hot sauce on everything, even if I don’t want you to drink my sodies after you’ve been eating it.
I love how much fun we have together. Our life never has to be taken seriously if we don’t want it to. I like that we are on the same page about that.
I love that its strange for me to call you John. You will always be Honey. My cutest Honey with the widest smile.
I love that you listen to all of my complaints even when they are one sided and most of the time completely irrational.
I love what a magnificent father you are to our boys, how much time you take out of your busy life to spend with them. You are amazing.
I love how much of a good person you are. You make me strive to be better.
I love how patient you are, especially with me. I’m hot headed and moody and you always just ride out the storm.
I love your eyes. They are so soulful. Keaton has the same ones and I always think that the two of you are the same that way.
I love your smile. It was the first thing I loved about you when I met you. How it takes up your entire face and gets lopsided and lazy when you’ve had too much to drink. Gavin has that wide smile. When I see him smile I see you each and every time.
I love your dirty sense of humor and that you appreciate my dirty sense of humor. For where would we be without constant penis jokes?

Sometimes I look at you as you are rough housing with our boys and I can’t believe how lucky I am to have stumbled into this life, to be with you, to have this family. I know I don’t tell you nearly enough how much I completely and utterly adore you. There are not enough words in this entire world for me to express fully the feelings of my heart.
I love our life together.
I love that we are better together.
You are my favorite person. I’m not good with feelings and I know this. But I am so happy you are my husband and my best friend. I am so glad we got stuck with each other. I’m so content in this beautiful life we share and it’s because of you. You make my life worth living. I love how I thank God everyday for bringing someone as wonderful as you into my life.
Happy Father’s day Honey!
