him



I'm asking you to do something.
I'm asking all of you that have HIM...



the one who sold his car for a least expensive one so he could buy you a ring...
the one who drove many miles through rain, snow, or shine just to see you...
the one who holds you when you cry...
the one who brought you soup when you were sick...
the one who supports your dreams, no matter how unrealistic they are...
the one who jumps on beds, swings on swings, and skips with you...
the one who watches chick flicks with you and secretly likes them...
the one who cleans out the shower drain...
the one who takes out the garbage...
the one who works two jobs so he can support you...
the one who came to see you in your show more than once...
the one who carries you up to bed after you have fallen asleep watching a movie...
the one who changed schools and moved to a completely different city so he could be closer to you...
the one who patiently taught you how to drive a manual transmission...
the one who went out early and scraped the ice/snow off your car...
the one who fixed your car...
the one who drove all the way back home to get you a sweater because you were cold...
the one who killed spiders/bugs for you...

the one who stuck around after things got hard...
the one who no matter what curve balls you threw at him is still by your side...
the one who tells you are the most beautiful girl he's ever seen...
the one who loves your more than anything else in his world...

because you are worth everything to him...
i bet he would even swim the ocean for you...

he gets it.
he gets that you are a divine woman.
and he really does love you.


hug him a little bit longer today...
kiss him a little bit harder today...
take in his smell and savor it...
look into his eyes and say, 'thank you for choosing me.'

my dear friends, you are blessed
to have HIM...







one day, I'll have HIM too.

Hey I recognized who some of those were talking about. Many of them were my sweet Tyler. He wouldn't want me using "sweet" and his name together. But you'll find your sweetheart soon. He's looking for you.
