Words are never enough




To my sweet husband,

The song playing in the background is for you. Happy Anniversary, Baby!

Seven years ago today, God blessed me with one of the most amazing gifts I have ever received, that gift was YOU!

I could sit here and write pages and pages about what you mean to me, but I know that words are never enough to describe my feelings. Thank you for making my dreams a reality of what a marriage should be. Thank you for making our house a home. Thank you for loving our children as only a father could and teaching them that biology is science and what truly matters is the love in your heart.

Here are just a few of the things you do that make my heart sing, as the little ones say., "H-A-L-L-E-L-U-J-A-H!"

  1. You never get out of bed in the morning without kissing me first and you never let a day go by without saying I love you....several times!
  2. You are always the one to get me my migraine pills because you say "they only work when you give them to me".
  3. When I ask you to, you curl up with me on the couch to watch chick flicks, although I know you hate them.
  4. You love cooking (and are amazing at it), you help me clean around the house, you take care of the yard, the kids, and on top of it of all, you work hard so that I could be a stay-at-home-Mama.
  5. You lay on the "hump" in the middle of our Sleep By Number bed, just so that you could be curled up with me to go to sleep, although you would be much more comfortable on your side.
  6. You always bring a glass of water to bed and put it on my nightstand in case I am thirsty in the middle of the night, although most nights the glass ends up full in the morning.
  7. You go through the routine of checking all the doors, just because you know it makes me feel safe and you wake up in the middle of the night to check the house whenever I say, "I heard a noise", although it's always nothing.
  8. You never complain when I wake you because I had a nightmare and you always curl up with me and ask me if I want to watch TV or sit up and talk about it.
  9. You never complain when the laundry is piled sky high or when I ask you if it's ok to have a "make your own dinner" night because I'm tired or have a headache and you end up eating a can of Dinty Moore stew for dinner.
  10. You adore our babies, but you also love Amanda, Tito and Adam exactly the same way. You've never shown them anything but Fatherly love since you joined our family.
  11. You love God with all your heart and are not afraid of sharing that love with others.
  12. You are so smart and full of knowledge that sometimes it blows me away how you know certain things.
  13. After 7 years of marriage and almost 11 years together, you are still as romantic as you were when we met and you take our vows very seriously.
  14. You can play in the pool with ALL the kids (even the grown ones) for hours and have a ball doing so, even if it means going "whale diving" and "shark hunting" a hundred times.
  15. You get up extra early to take Amanda to school and will stop at the grocery store almost every night on your way home so that I don't have to go out.
  16. You make me laugh like no one can!

Honey, I am truly blessed to be your wife. You are my soul mate and I love you with every fiber of my being. Thank you for allowing me the honor of being Mrs. Scott Bombardier.

"For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh." - Genesis 2:24

UPDATE: Just to give you all a taste of my sweetie's humor....here's the comment he left under the "comments" section. He cracks me up!! (Thanks honey for the sweet words!)

Your Husband said...

Wow!!Hey! It's your husband! ( Yes you out there in blogland, I'm not without fingers, I do exist.... I'm just the quiet one in the background )! Wow Honey, thank you for all that you see in me and allowing ME to be your husband. After 7 years, you'd think we'd be doing the typical marriage things. You know, sitting around all night in our underwear, your hair up in curlers, watching repeats of Matlock while drinking a 6 pack, while I pick lint from my belly button and focus on why my toenails grow so fast. Sheesh! LOL!!

Actually, our marriage these 7 years has been as its first day, as bright and wonderful as my first view of you in your wedding dress, taking my breath away as you walked towards me with the eyes of an angel and the smile that stole my heart away the first time I seen it.

And may I just say, it became NOTHING like I was expecting it to be! Who knew we'd have 3 little crumbcrunchers running around our nice QUIET ( what's that again ? ) home!

But there could be nothing else that could make me happy, and there's no one else who can make me smile by just walking into the room, and there's no one else who could take away the sheer joy that you bring into my life every moment I share it with you. Thank you for being such a terrific Mom, a spectacular love, and my best friend.

And like I've said 1000 times before, and I'll say it 100,000 times before I die, Thank God that He, and only He, could bring us together and make HIS PERFECT PLAN, into OUR PERFECT PLAN.

I simply adore you.

Your loving husband, Scott

P.S. i got some lint here.... ewwwwwww!
