change of plans...

I was going to copy Ashley and write up a post of texts between Eric and me, but this is the first one I read:

Eric: Hi there sugar plum bum, I frickin love you.
Me: Prove it and go get me a pizza :)

.... And then I changed my mind. Haha!
(side note: 'frickin' is not to be confused with 'freakin'... there is more of an emphasis, more force with the word to make it more passionate. Haha! At least Eric thinks so :) Oh and you'll never ever hear the words sugar plum bum come out of his mouth. Ever.)


Instead, I just want to give a little shout out to my man. I am so lucky he's mine! Sometimes it is so easy, too easy, to pick at our relationship and point out what's wrong. Or that I expect more out of him. Or to tell him what I want, want, want.
Then I take a step back and realize how ridiculous and selfish I am. Eric is good at everything he does. He's almost always right. Almost. And he always has my best intentions in mind. He puts me first, and I'm not sure I deserve it. But I am grateful.
Eric loves me in the best way possible, he loves me his way. He is perfect for me. I love that man with my whole heart!

I hate Blogger sometimes. I just wrote a paragraph long post and it deleted. Basically, I just want to say thank you for writing this post. It was a good reminder that M loves me the best way he knows how. So thank you for sharing this post.

Brooke said...

Oh my goodness. Everything in this post is exactly what I feel about our marriage! It really is so easy for me to pick at things, but honestly, I am soooo lucky. I already decided I'm going to be a long-term stalker of your blog :)
