valentine word tree

Happy Valentines Day Honey


At least Once a week I ponder all that you have accomplished
and I feel so proud to have watched you grow into the man
that you are today, instead of the boy that I married.
Once a week I Honor you in my heart


Twice a week I meditate for your prosperity.
Emotionally, physically and spiritually.
I imagine you right at the top of the world shouting that you
love your job and are right were you want to be.
Twice a week I set time aside just to pray for you, my husband.


Three times a week we discuss our grown adult children.
I ponder your deep love and loyal devotion to them.
I take those moments to feel pride in our parenting team.
Three times a week I feel grateful for such an active partner.


Four times a week I sneak a glance or two over at you and think,
"That good looking hot hunk of a man belongs to me.
I feel like the luckiest girl in the world and when you look back at me...
Four times a week my knees go weak when you hold me.


Five times a week I ask you how your day went,
and this begins our one hour dinner talk.
I learn so much from you and appreciate that you learn from me also.
Five times a week I look forward to those special conversations.


Six times a week I truly thank God that you love to cook.
I appreciate that burden you gladly carry for me
and joyfully, creatively and deliciously revel in your provided nourishment.
Six times a week, together, we are learning healthy eating for life.


Seven times a week my love grows deeper and deeper for you.
I never imagined that love encompassed so much territory.
It is our love for each other that has brought us through some very tough times.
Seven times a week, I know that I can count on you and the trust I have
in you means
the world to me.
One
Two
Three
Four
Five
Six
Seven
This only love of my life~on this Earth~brings me Heaven.

Loving you is the most important thing in my life. God has truly blessed me by allowing me to share my life with someone a special as you. Your strength, character, and heart inspire me to be my best as a husband, father, son and friend. No matter what struggle life has in store for us I am at peace because I know that with you by my side, nothing can hurt us! Thank you loving me and allowing me to be part of your life.
