Barb Derksen - Heart Music
You are one of the exceptional examples of chivalry in this age – you're not a chauvenist. You take the lead in our marriage, but you also do it in a serving way.
You open doors.
You pull out chairs.
When we ran road races you always stayed back with me – never mind the timing!
You always give me the 'best' of a meal, insisting I take that little bit of tenderloin.
You took me faithfully to see my Grandma before she passed away.
You encourage me to visit with family.
You buy me cream puffs from the place I like them – the one with the 'real' whip cream
You make emergency Cheezie runs on a Friday night before a movie.
You'll cave to a chick-flick instead of the sci-fi you've been wanting to see.
You take out the trash.
You take care of Sabastian (our van) – keeping her fueled and ready and clean should I need a thrift store run.
You make sure I have cash for the thrift store.
You go to the thrift store with me.
You go yard saling with me on the weekend, even if you have a busy schedule.
You go for a walk with me daily, even if you've been to the gym in the morning and are dog-tired.
You let me chatter on and on and ...
You honour our parents.
You enable me to shop at Claire's – my little addiction.
You teach me computer skills – even after a 12 hour day teaching students.
You use photos of me in your Photography classes.
You bring me up in conversation if an attractive female seems over-friendly at school or elsewhere.
You TELL me if an attractive female finds seems over-friendly.
You invite me to spend time at the school.
You phone and check with me even when there's a meeting you 'have' to attend.
You've never spent a night away from me – NOT ONE.
You bring me coffee in bed – every day.
You shave for ME every day. You ask me if I'd like you to!
You take out the compost regularly.
You cook for me.
You bring me flowers.
You don't swear – you find creative ways to express your frustration.
You're faithful, obedient and encourage me in our Faith.
You take time out of each day to connect with me.
You like me to read to you.
You buy me all the latest 'toys' – when I would go with something simple.
You teach me how to use these toys.
You encourage me in my art.
You warm the van for me on cold days.
You rub my feet when they are cold.
You do 90% of the grocery shopping for me.
You paint my toenails.
You always unlock my door of the van and adjust the cover.
You encourage me to sing – even though I don't have a very great voice.
You believed in my artistic talent and skills before I did.
You phone me on EVERY school break – just to say “I love you”
You let me use your good razor blades for my legs, even though it kills your face if you don't have a new one left.
You drive everywhere for us, unless I want to. Even on holidays when we go thousands of miles.
I get up this morning, all bedraggled and dreading the thought of canning the 55 lb of tomatoes waiting for me in the kitchen. Mr. Miles comes bouncing in to my bedroom, with a fresh, hot, steaming cup of coffee, all shiny clean and dressed ready for school and he asks me if I 'have two minutes' I snuggle up in his arms and he says - "I just want you to know that I went down this morning to get a jar of peaches from the pantry, and when I looked at all the jars of fruit and produce you've put up I was proud. I just want you to know, you're the BEST wife."
*lump in my throat*
Canning was not a problem.
That's my man.
Miles, I love you more than words can say! I thank God that you are the ONE He chose for me!
