My Husband Rocks!

It's Friday!  I'm here to give you reason #2 why My Husband Rocks!
See this pile of notes:
These are the little notes, poems, etc. my husband has written me over the past two days.  Yes, two days.
My husband is a great writer.  I have a box full of all the cards, letters, and notes that he has written me since we started dating.  Sometimes he writes silly things, sometimes it's an intense love letter.  I never know what's in store when I start to open what's been handed to/left for me.
When we were planning our wedding, we decided to each choose a reading to be read to the other during the ceremony.  We kept the readings a secret from each other so they'd have more impact as they were read.  I searched for mine, found it, and sent it off to Annie (my sister-in-law, and my reader).  I assumed that David had done the same and sent his off to Shawna (my  sister-in-law, and his reader).  To my surprise, when Shawna started reading, she read the title, The Marriage, and then said - by David L.  I guess I shouldn't have been surprised since he loves to write, but I was.
I asked David if I could share it with you, so here it is, the reading he wrote for me for our wedding.
The MarriageIt will be there.
It will be there when everyone stumbles back to their rooms after the dance.
It will be there after all the gifts are opened.
It will be there after the vows are said.
It will be there after the first dance.
It will be there when all the lights go out in the banquet hall.
It will be there after everyone is done laughing and crying.
It will be there for the eternity after.
It will be there with every embrace, every kiss, every "you look so beautiful".
It will be there because it was always there and always meant to be there.
It will be there every day with love and passion sparked anew.
It will be there - the union of souls, the bond of hearts, and the pure love of two.
No matter the time or place - the love, the beauty, the marriage will be there.
Yes, he's cute and a great writer.  :o)
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Um. He is a keeper. But you already knew that. Other women would kill for their husbands to even utter a word, a single word that even remotely comes close to what yours has so eloquently written. other women. Yeah. ;)
