My husband works hard at his job.  He is also tireless about exploring new ideas to support his family including writing books, tutoring on the side, and creating educational products.  He has big dreams, great ideas and puts work behind them.  I appreciate him and all he does for our family.

My husband has a dimple on his right cheek and I must say it is the cutest thing.  Dimples are mysterious and marvelous.  His dimple is unquestionably one of the things I love about being married!  I get to look at it all the time and even put my finger in it!  🙂

Collections are fascinating to me.  Not just the collection itself but what it is a person collects and why.  I used to collect sunflowers.  Especially kitchen sunflower things.  It got a bit old and I stopped but when I was into it I was really into it.  A friend collects rosaries.  A friend’s husband collects Santas.  My husband collects movies.  I’m not sure he considers it an official collection.  He just likes movies and buys them.  I call it a collection.

I remember the first time I had dinner at his house.  He was making dinner and told me to pick out a movie to watch.  It was amazing that I could look through hundreds of movies and not see anything I wanted to watch.  I barely recognized the movies!  The movies fell into the following categories: science fiction, horror, action, and thrillers.  The first three categories I categorically dislike.  I like thrillers but I guess didn’t know they were thrillers or had already seen them.  Honestly, I think they became infected being around so many detestable sci-fi and horror films.  It was like they were covered in blood and alien juice!  Yuck!

When we moved from an apartment to a townhouse soon after we married, we had no cable for about a week.  Those movies really came in handy.  I think we must have watched a gazillion.  It was the first time I really appreciated “the collection.”  Many times since then we will see a clip from a film and I will say “That looks good” and my husband will say “We have that.”  I’m astonished.  It just goes to show you that it’s best to have an open mind.  Before I met my husband I had never seen Independence Day (which I liked).  I had never watched the X-Files (love) or Law & Order (double love!).  I must admit, I appreciate my husband’s movie collection and it is one of the things I love about being married!

When the world is cold and unforgiving, it’s nice to know that I can go home to my husband who is steady, charming, loving, dependable and my biggest fan.  Just knowing that he is in the world can get me through my darkest days.
