I’ve grown accustomed to her face
She almost makes the day begin
Her joys, her woes, her highs, her lows
Her smiles, her frowns, her ups, her downs
Are second nature to me now, like breathing out and breathing in
I’ve grown accustomed to her looks, accustomed to her voice
Accustomed to her face
It truly is a small world. Who would have thought tonight I’d walk into the executive lounge at the Melbourne Marriott and get into a discussion about the Big 12 football conference with 4 other people from the US? One lady’s daughter graduated from TCU’s School of Nursing, and the conversation was all about the new stadium and whether Gary Patterson (the TCU football coach) was susceptible to being spirited away from Fort Worth by another college. Unthinkable! Anyway, just when you think you’re a million miles from home, something like this happens and you’re back there again, if only for a few minutes…
From our last day on the Gold Coast. I don’t care how old she gets. Even now as MBD has just turned 12, I still can see the little girl in her snuggling up to her purple bear. Some things DO last forever!
To My Wonderful Husband,
You amaze me at times I don’t expect it. You cherish me in subtle ways I may not see. Your desire for the best for me sometimes clouds your decisions when your only goal is to make me happy. Your love for me is abundant and something I tend to take for granted. You are always willing to sooth the savage beast within me when it rears its ugly head.. Today I want you to know that I do see all that you do for me. I do see the many ways that you love me. And I do see that I am blessed beyond belief to be your wife. Thank you for the best Valentines Day present ever!
I love you with all of my heart.
Your loving wife
MBW put “55” sparklers on my birthday cake yesterday to help me celebrate.
Spent the day chilling out with my family.
