#R2BC - L... is for Love

Yesterday was my birthday and after a nice evening out with dh for a yummy meal and some alone time I thought I would take the opportunity to use my Reasons to be Cheerful post as a reminder of what love is for me (romantic, husband type love that is).

So this week I give you L is for love and Love is ....
  • dh buying me the same flowers from our wedding day for our 10th anniversary in July (Stargazer lillies in case you were wondering!)
  • taking time to be there for the other one.
  • snuggling into a big chest and feeling completely safe.
  • trusting that he has my and the kids best interests at the forefront of all he does.
  • dh not nagging me when I spend too much time on the computer.... and vice-versa.
  • being willing to compromise. Not just assuming my way is right or best.
  • looking out the patio door and finding dh has mowed the lawn....  which means I do not have to.
  • coming home from work and all the washing has been done and then folded and put away.
  • dh happily letting me go off and travel alone while he looks after the kids, be it with the girls, Church or for a more worthwhile blogger trip such as my upcoming trip with to Ethiopia.
  • Growing old together.
