For My Wife

This post is dedicated to my wife, Kari. Her birthday is tomorrow. I know that I often do not show my love or appreciation for her and I wanted to share a few words on why I think the world of her. I have created a top ten list of things I love and appreciate about her:

10. She has stuck with me the past 12 and a half years despite my failings.
9. She makes me laugh.
8. She is willing to tell me like it is even when I don’t want to hear it (and I always need to hear it!)
7. She listens to my stupid jokes and laughs (and isn’t afraid to tell me when I’m being too much like my father, the king of stupid jokes)
6. She has supported me through some tough times in my life.
5. She’s my motivator when I don’t want to be motivated (which is most of the time).
4. She inspires me to become a better person (someday I will be!)
3. She has been willing to sacrifice herself in order to bring our five children into this world.
2. Her love for the Lord has drawn me closer to Him just by being near her.
1. She works tirelessly at keeping up the household. She is the rock of our family. None of us appreciate that as much as we should.

I love you Kari and I hope you have a wonderful birthday! May the Lord bless you on your special day!
