I'm going to draw a name from the hat tonight to see who won the give away (if you live out of town I'll probably leave the restaurant choice up to you.) Here's the list I came up with on my bathroom mirror. See if you can guess which one Phillip added and which ones Eliot added
I love you because:
1- you are kind
2- you are cheerful
3- you are my best friend
4- you make me laugh
5- you know what I'm going to say before I say it
6- Daddy I love you because you work so late and hard *
7- you are such a great father
8- you have such a loving heart
9- you help me *
10- your a great lyter (I think he meant leader)*
11- you help me understand my world and teach me to think critically about it
12- you encourage me to love sacrificially
13- you rescue me from disaster when I'm at my wit's end with the kids
14- you help me understand other people's perspective
If you did the challenge at home and didn't comment on the blog you still have a chance to participate by adding your comment and letting me know that you played along with me. Even if you didn't do it all 15 days I bet you could still surprise your husband with 15 things you are grateful for about him. I would love to know what you wrote on your mirrors if it's not too personal!
* written by Eliot
Not only sands and gravels Were once more on their travels, But gulping muddy gallons Great boulders off their balance Bumped heads together...
I see you laying in our bed and I lay in your shadow The back side of your face a wall that does not break and will not fall It'...
I don't know if any of you have ever had to deal with the repercussions of a suicide but the amazing thing about it is how far reaching...
