Counting the Ways

Elizabeth Barret Browning famously wrote "How do I love thee, Let me count the ways..."

I figured it might be worth turning that around a smidge:
How do I know he (Diamond) loves me? Let me count the ways...

*He calls me from work just see how I'm doing.
*He lets me warm my freezing toes on his toasty feet.
*He understands my need for a break, and is willing to go on "Adventures" with the family.
*He shovels all the deep snow.
*He listens to me when I need to vent or cry -
even when it's 12:30am, and he has to wake up in less than five hours.
*He takes me along on his business trips.
*He doesn't complain about how busy I get with Relief Society.
*He goes to work, so I don't have to.
*He sets a great example for our boys.
*He cuts coupons, then uses that extra money to take me to faraway places.
*He is trustworthy.
*He lets me pick the restaurant.
*He has always supported me in reaching my personal goals.
*He manages the kids so I can sleep in on Saturday mornings.
*He always seems to know when I need a hug, a pat on the back, or an "attagirl".
*He promised me forever.

Sometimes I just can't believe how lucky I am.
Happy Valentine's Day Diamond.

While you were counting the "ways" I kept looking behind you in that pictures to count the "waves". Man, I miss the beach. Oh, and your husband sounds like a decent guy too.
