Never ask a question….


The other night as we prepared for bed I asked my husband if I could read a draft of my blog post to him, he agreed.

As I begin to read my eyes trained on my iPad, I spied him transfixed and still as a mouse with my peripheral vision. I thought to myself, wow, I have entranced him with this topic, by the licisiousness of my words, the context of the story…this good. LOL

Once I’d finished reading, I promptly turned to him beaming with pride and bursting with self satisfaction, I asked “how’d I do?” Pointing at my iPad he exclaimed “all that was on one page, it seemed like you read at least two or three pages worth!”

I DROPPED DEAD in a fit of hysterical laughter! We laughed so hard and for so long that we nearly cried. Now, I know the truth behind his motionless attention. I might add it was a mere 249 words in length. LOL

And thus these are the reasons I love this man completely…he makes me smile, he causes me to laugh a lot, he supports my crazy, he nurtures my heart and protects my very soul. If ever I need a hug, encouragement, my years wiped or a dose of reality, he handles all that and more.

Ahem, public pole dancing was his consequence for the blog comment. JK

My love is my gift…

My love is my gift…



See this man, I LOVE HIM!

I love him so much that he takes my breath away with an easy smile or a simple embrace. I married this man, after stepping out on faith (thanks, Iyana Vanzant for “In The Meantime”) meeting him via a dating service (thanks, People Store) and because I knew in my “heart of hearts” the very first time I heard his voice that he was “the one” I married him three months later. I tossed caution to the wind and trusted that faith would return nothing “less than” to my heart.

Our life together isn’t a fairytale, but it is it’s own Love Story” with the usual ups and downs, struggles, and occasional delirium. I would also add that our story is charged with and by our laughter, smiles, personal sacrifice and undying love for one another.

To understand our love you would have to know that our story was created with a solid foundation, a foundation that consisted of open communication, support, trust, honesty and a twist of “til death do we part.”

He is truly, my “best friend” he has stood up for me and stands beside me during my personal struggles, pushes me toward achieving my endeavors, tolerates my workaholic tendencies, community driven inspirations, incessant sorority requirements and beams with each of my accomplishments. As I too, have done the same for him.

My dream is to live a long, long life with this man. I believe whatever storms we encounter, as long as we continue to place one another first, communicate with love and honesty and laugh together we will overcome thus; My Love Is My Gift to him forever.
