Twenty-Four Things I Love About My Wife

I few years ago saw a post on LJ that suggested an interesting tradition for anniversaries: For each year that you are married, post one thing that you love about your spouse. We were married in 1985, so this year marks year Nº 24:

  1. I love that she keeps her head in a crisis.
  2. I love that she knows how to calm me down when I start panicking.
  3. I love that she helps me think logically when dealing with big ticket
    items or expenses.
  4. I love that she knows how to think through situations logically.
  5. I love that she is a very loyal friend, going out of her way to help
    others.
  6. I love that she is able to express herself very well, and convey
    information the information to others in ways they can understand.
  7. I love that she is a very good cook, coming up with creative
    gluten-free dishes.
  8. I love that she is willing to put away the laundry.
  9. I love that she pulls off very nice parties.
  10. I love that she has a good decorating sense.
  11. I love that she cleans up nicely 🙂
  12. I love that she puts up with my disappearing off to Boardgame
    days and my working on the highway pages.
  13. I love the needlecrafting and fabric arts that she does.
  14. I love that she knows how to deal with our daughter when I’m getting
    frustrated.
  15. I love that she is active in our daughter’s school life.
  16. I love that she is willing to deal with family situations I don’t
    want to deal with.
  17. I love that she is willing to deal with contractors and repair
    critters.
  18. I love that she doesn’t spend too much on quilting and fabric
    supplies :-).
  19. I love that she has similar tastes in friends to me.
  20. I love that she enjoys going to the theatre with me.
  21. I love that she understands that I’m not romantically inclined.
  22. I love that she puts up me when I’m dealing with my headaches.
  23. I love her compatible music tastes.
  24. I love that she’ll take my car in to get serviced, as opposed to saying “It’s your problem. Deal.”


Of course, this list doesn’t include the things I love about her that I can’t post on LiveJournal :-). Maybe next year. You’ll just have to wait and see.
