When we got married, I wrote an entire list of 366 reasons why I love Boy. I will post this in his honour on Valentine’s Day, but right now, I just wanted to share the e-mail he sent me this afternoon when he knew I was feeling sad.
“Reasons You’re Awesome:
You’re open-minded about new ideas and new experiences.
You’re genuinely nice to people.
You dance and sing.
You write really well.
You can carry on an intelligent conversation (it’s sad for the world that this would be a distinctive trait in a person).
You consistently thwart my schemes against the cat.
You’ll order food on the phone when I don’t feel like talking to people (which is never).
You’re just awesome (oh no! this is supposed to be a list of reasons why you’re awesome! it’s a circular argument!)
*universe blinks out of existense*”
So even when things are sucking out loud, I think I’m pretty lucky. 🙂
