I Love My Wife!

I know I love my wife!!!

My wife and children are away on a holiday vacation. Life is different when they are not around. We just moved to a new place and it is kind of weird being home alone. This house makes all kinds of sounds, most of which cannot be identified. It is not that I'm not scared, nope, no fear over here--I am just making an observation!

I received a phone call from a good friend of mine today. He and I love to rip on our wives about how big of suckers they are for marrying us. I made him laugh because I told him what I have been eating for dinner the past few days since my wife is not around. My meals consist of leftovers, more leftovers, Digiorno’s pizza, and oatmeal and cereal. I have no idea what I am going to be eating tonight. I told him that I
do not eat well when my wife is out of town. He said that I should at least know how to cook some hot dogs or some spaghetti.

Truth is, I do know how to cook. I am self-sufficient. I have just been blessed by God to have an amazing wife. She provides for me in more ways than I can count. I told my friend that my wife would be home in a few days, so I am holding out until she comes. If for some reason I get sick of what I’m eating, I’ll have to strap on that apron and get busy.

My wife’s absence is a blessing. Although I really miss her while she’s a away, her absence allows me to realize how much our lives have become one. These times help me to understand how I love, miss and need her in my life.

Annjenette Mabon, if I have not shown you the love, respect, patience and support that you need, I apologize. I want to say from here on, we will avoid those valleys, but we are human; rough times are inevitable. What I can say is that this time alone has allowed me to put the right things in perspective: God, you, my kids and then whatever else.
