Why I love my wife reason #2

             So those of you who read my first post, I told you I was going to spend the next 100 days listing 100 reasons why I love my wife. So here is reason number 2.

                                                         You mothered my children
             Let me rewind time and take you back to my first date with this incredible woman. We went to a movie and at the time I was recently divorced from my first marriage. I happened to have Zoey my daughter with me and was not able to find a sitter. Kim without skipping a beat said bring her along. There I was on my first date with this amazing woman and a 9 month old baby girl in my arms, I was thinking there is no way I am going to win this woman over with a baby in the movies. Half way through the movie Zoey wakes up looks at Kim reaches for Kim and climbs into Kim's arms. For the remainder of the movie I was no longer watching the big screen but watching my life unfold before my eyes. At that moment watching how loving, and caring she was towards a child that was not from her womb, I knew this woman would be mine forever.
             Now from this point Kim became Mommy to Zoey without Zoey ever feeling forced to call her that. It was my wife's actions and the things she did for Zoey out of love that earned her that title. After being married for over a year we were given a blessing of a beautiful little boy Gavin. This little boy would change our lives forever. He is so gifted and so smart that he gives us a new set of challenges that my wife grasps and tackles these challenges with ease. I remember the day that he was born and we had decided a name completely for him. And as he lay in her arms and looking my beautiful wife in the eyes caressing her tired face and wiping the tears from her eyes we knew exactly what to name him. This was another defining moment in my. Life where I knew just how special this girl would be to me and how she had been selected to build a family with and for me.
             We later found ourselves again awaiting another beautiful little boy, Tanner and holy cow were we in for some fun now. But it was having him come into our lives that pushed us to make a change that will not only change our lives but our whole family's. Through all of these challenges not once has my wife ever complained about the full time job she has as mother. Not once did she complained about having to care for a girl who she didn't give birth to. If you ask Kim who are your kids Zoey will always come in that list. She has a genuine love for all her children. She is a true example for what every mom should be. And for that I fall in love with her more and more every day!

I love my Wife reason #1

              The other day me and my wife were discussing what the other lacked from our marriage and why we found ourselves feeling tiny bits of sorrow. She explained to me how she missed the simple romantic things that I used to do. This put a deep ache in my heart that I had forgotten how much I loved sweeping her off her feet. So for the next 100 days I dedicate this blog to my wife and will explain to the world why my wife means so much to me. So here is reason #1.

                                                         You bring out the true me
             My wife is the only person that I have ever been with that has accepted me for who I am. Though I must say she has blushed a lot, ducked behind the car door as I continuously made a fool of my self in traffic. She has always tolerated my immature pranks I play on the attendants of the dressing rooms at Walmart. From the very moment the precious gift from God fell into my arms she has done nothing but create me into a better person and all along accepting that I will always be the most embarrassing prankster in her life. She has never tried to change me or if she has tried she is so good at what she does that if I have changed its because she saw the best in me that I could not see. My beautiful wife has stuck beside me at times when I say "honey I think I am going to quit my job and do something else" knowing that behind her supportive smile she was trembling. But all the while through whatever change she encouraged me to be the best that I could. Never wavering in support, never losing faith in who I would become. People say that your spouse was selected for you prior to this life. I believe this with all my being. I know without a shadow of a doubt that God found my wife and said " Kim, don't worry it's only for an eternity you are exactly what this young man needs to become who he really is, just have patience my child he will get there, I hope!". To this day I am grateful for her willingness to take on this challenge!
