“And this is just the beginning….” by Michael

Anne has been asking me to make a post on her blog for some time, and what better time than on her birthday. Consider this part of my present to her.  Yes, the first 32 reasons why I love Anne.

 

1. She has incredible hair! 

2. She loves spontaniety and is always ready to go have some fun.

3. From day one, trust has never been an issue. I trust her completely.

4. She is completely transparent. 

5. I never have to guess how she feels. It’s always apparent!

6. She has prayed for me since she was 15 years old.

7. I get to hear her sing everyday!

8. She loves her friends and family with an open heart, and I hope that never changes.

9. She was willing to move and live in New Orleans for 4 years, and support me through school in the process.

10. She is the most faithful woman I know.

11. She has a strong sense of justice and always wants “right” to win over “wrong”

12. She has passed her love for reading onto Aidan, Molly, and now Paisley (who at home wants to read a book about every 30 minutes).

13. She likes to stay up late and play “Name that song”.

14. She still cries at award shows (name one, it doesn’t matter: Oscars, Golden Globes, Tony, CMA, etc).

15. She loves musicals!

16. She gets more beautiful with every passing day.

17. Her relationship with God permeates everything in her life.

18. She likes BBQ, too. 

19. She’s a great kisser!

20. She loves to play board games, card games, guessing games, word games, etc. I can’t beat her at Monopoly or Trivia Pursuit.

21. She likes to throw a baseball or hit a golf ball.

22. She understands that my shopping freshness expires after 45 minutes.

23. Manners matter to her.

24. She was my friend for 6 years before we ever dated.

25. She has had nicknames like Coon, Coon-mama and Coon-Anne the Barbarian.

26. She will play me in chess.

27. She has carried, labored, and delivered my 3 children. For that, I am forever grateful.

28. She is a great cook. 

29. She likes to read In-Style and other fashion magazines because she loves fashion.

30. There is an edge of uniqueness in most things she does. She likes to be different.

31. I love her because it’s just wrong that others don’t always see the goodness of her motives and respect the openness of friendship she so many times offers.

32. God told me 11 years ago that He wanted Anne to know how much He loved her, that He wanted to protect her open, transparent, trustworthy, fun-loving heart. And He told me that I was the one He wanted to use.  So I love her because he called me to do so.

Welcome! Hope you enjoy the blog. I know nothing about the internet, except that I like it a lot. So there's nothing fancy on here, just thoughts and pictures. It's the simple things, right?
