When I was in college, I always prayed to marry the man I love. Years later I learned to pray to love the man that I married.

Can I just say how lucky I am to have my husband? Someone who is faithful. Loves me unconditionally. Puts up with my moods. Loves our children as much as I do, would give his life for any one of them. Trusts me with all his heart. Brags about me to his coworkers (and uses me as perfect examples when teaching psychology to undergrads--but we'll just skip over that part!). He loves me! And I love him so much that thinking about him now gives me butterflies in my stomach!

But you know what?-- that love doesn't come naturally, and you're a fool if you think it does! It takes practice. It takes patience. And you have to be humble, lose the pride and recognize how good you really have it!

Because I do.


  1. De-lurking for just a moment--

    You have NO IDEA how much I needed to read that today! Sometimes life isn't a fairy tale, but come to think of it, it's not all that bad either!

  2. Kinda random. I'd like to hear the story behind this post... PLEASE!

    good ol N8! Love him and his snobby food!

  3. Hey.... I really like this post.

  4. fyi- I'm home visiting my family and their lovelives are torturing me!!--which has led to the aforementioned reflection on how GOOD MY LIFE REALLY IS!!

    *no story behind it.
    I'm just TRULY in love with N8.

  5. Thanks for the clarification, I wanted to know what the story behind this post was too. But I agree, with your families lovelife history you have it great! N8 is great... LOL. Sorry that rhymed.

  6. wow! how amazing. funny because i was just thinking along the same lines the other day. it really does take work and it is hard. but i do love my husband and i do love what he does for our Little Man.

    glad you are so much in love! wish a lot more people could experience that!

  7. I so needed to hear that right now! Especially with my preggo hormones flying!

  8. AMEN!

    (I know I'm late, I just got back! Call or email me to let me know what's up for this week!)

  9. Amen to that! Amen to that...


Oh come on-- the least you can do is say HELLO!! You didn't come all this way to turn around and walk away, did you? DID YOU??
