27 Reasons

Today is my wonderful husband's birthday!  He is turning the big 2-7!  Good thing guys don't really care about age or numbers!  I thought as a little tribute to him today, I would list in no particular order, 27 reasons why I love Eric so much, and why I am so thankful he was born!!

Eric...
1. I love that I can tell you anything, you are so easy to talk to, a good listener, and you don't judge.  I loved that about you from when we first started dating over 10 years ago, and I still love that about you today! 
2. I adore how much you love and respect your parents and family.
3. I love how you allow God to lead your life and our family.  It would be easy to follow your own ambitions, but you made the choice a long time ago to let God lead you.
4. I love how you look at Molly when she is reading to you, or just sitting next to you. 
5. I love how you take care of me and Molly.  We can always count on you and you have never let us down!
6. I love how you can give me that look and I know everything will be okay, or that I need to calm down :)
7. I love that you are pateint with me. 
8. Although you may not love this one sweet husband of mine, I love that you bought me a cat after we got married!
9. I love that you jump in to help out in any situation.  You have no hesitation, you just go for it.
10. I love how you and Molly go out on little dates.  I am so happy that you want to be the one to show her how she deserves to be treated by boys. 
11. I love that you are athletic.  I could watch you play sports all day long.
12. I love that you love to grill!  I don't even know how to light that thing!
13. I love that you are a Pastor.  A long time ago you would have laughed at the thought, but now you truly embrace it.
14. I love that you love to cook and bake! 
15. I love the constant support you always give me!  You are my number 1 fan :)
16. I love that you still hold my hand.
17. I love the way you make my coffee in the mornings.
18. I love that every time you leave to go somewhere you still kiss me good-bye.
19. I love that Molly got her beautiful curls from you.
20. I love looking into your eyes and being reminded of our wedding day.
21. I love that you are adventourous and challenge me to try new things.
22. I love that you are stinkin' hilarious!  You make me laugh every single day.
23. I love the fact that you are hard core to Molly's face, and then we laugh about it after she leaves the room!
24. I love that you make me eat a vegetable with lunch and dinner.  Although I may protest, deep down I know it's good for me!
25. I love that you are cheap, yes honey, you are!  But it's clearly worked for us, and we have never gone without!
26. I love that you are a good friend to those around you.  People know they can count on you and you will be there for them.
27. Last, but not least, I love that you decided to pick me.  You could have spent your life with anyone, but you picked me.  I love everything about you!  I love that you aren't afraid to be yourself around people, and you are always smiling!

Happy Birthday to the love of my life, the one God has blessed me with, 
the most wonderful father to our daughter, 
and my best friend, Eric.
