My Main Man

In our house today, we're celebrating Brent! He turns another year older, and I hope he's another year happier. I saw this quote the other day and thought it summed up some of my feelings on my love pretty nicely:

The reason why I like you? There is no reason.
There should be no reason.
If you love someone because of a reason when that reason is gone,
your heart will change too.

I like you without a reason. I like you because you are you.

That really spoke to me because Brent is just a great person. There are a lot of great qualities about him, but at the end of the day, he is my better half, the yin to my yang. Simply, he is my lobster.

What are some of his great qualities you ask? Great question!

He is a loyal and good friend. When anyone needs something, he is there. He helps his uncle on his land all the time. He helped a friend and neighbor build some shelves for his garage. He moved plants for his mom. He doesn't do things for people to get something in return, he just does it because he cares.

He is funny. He is always ready to laugh with you (sometimes at me you) and have a good time.

He is patient. I don't think anyone could be married to me without an excess of patience. It takes A LOT to get him worked up.

He is steady. Brent is a mountain of steadiness. Postpartum 3 times? No worries, he's there. Trent's being especially challenging? No worries, he's got it covered. There is almost nothing that worries him which is perfect since I am the opposite.

He makes me feel good. I was talking to my parents and sister on Sunday about how unhappy I am with my body. But then I told them that over our 20 years together, Brent has never said one negative thing about my shape or size. Skinny, fluffy {I'm not fat, ha}, toned, soft, tan, anything, he loves all of me and makes me feel that love.

He has made my dreams come true. One word is enough to describe this: Paige. {grin} But past her, he supports all my crazy ideas and helps me make my dreams a reality.

So there is no one reason I love Brent. I love him for who he is. Who he is is pretty damn awesome.

Happy birthday, my love!
