Today is my 16th Wedding Anniversary!

my husband, my friend, my confidant, my lover, my babies Daddy, my boo,
my shoulder to cry on, my venting post, my target of frustration, my biggest cheerleader,
my man.
He is a really decent human being.
He is exceedingly kind to servers, especially ones of the female persuasion.
He is the guy you can always count on to buy something from a kid selling anything at the door.
He is THE man of our home, taking the absolute BEST care of us.
He is a man's man.
Rough on the outside, strong, fixes everything, builds anything, blue jean wearing, hard hat owning, never let 'em see him sweat manly man.
But when he sees his kids do anything, when he is watching them play, ride a bike, diligently do homework, get tackled, make someone smile, or sleep, he breathes in a sigh of love that isn't just audible, it's tactile.
He is a man that loves deeply, loves honestly, and loves for lifetimes.
He is man who repeatedly says Divorce is never an option.
He is a man who says he will work 10 jobs if he has too to provide for his family.
He is a man that is slow to anger, and quick to forgive.
He is a man that goes without his beloved speed boats and river trips so his children can have a private school education and vacations to destinations his wife loves.
He is a man that truly puts his family and their needs ahead of his own, at all costs.
He is a man that loves to buy his wife jewlery.
God, you gotta love a man that does that. ;)
He is a man that kisses and thanks me for dinner every night.
He is a man that patiently teaches each of his boys how to do all the magnificent things he knows how to do with is tools and his hands.
He is a man that is teaching his boys how to love their wives by loving their Mama.
The man drives me INSANE with is procrastination, and terminal tardiness.
He snores like a herd of dying buffalo.
He falls asleep on the sofa every. single. night. and it takes me 25 times to get him to go to bed and be comfortable.
He buys himself the UGLIEST shoes I have ever seen.
and he is all mine.
They say that the 16th Anniversary is the gift of Silver Holloware, or Peridot jewelry.
I say... nevermind the gifts.
Just more of Bill will be just fine by me.
Besides...I don't like peridot.
Happy Anniversary, Honey.
I love you more today than yesterday.
