A Thousand Reasons Why I Love You.

There are a thousand sets of a thousand reasons why I love you Daniel.

Let me start by saying there's no one like you. You are the most selfless man I know. You love me so much--so much in fact, that if you never said those words, I'd still know.

You encourage me to be my best self. You won't let me settle for second best. You push me to be the most I can be.

You are sensitive in a way that makes me have a conversation with God that goes a little bit like this, "God, I don't deserve this man....he could have had anyone...and chose me."

I love it when you are singing your favorite rap song (probably by Tupac, Trick Daddy or Twista)...and you curl up your upper lip to make yourself a little more gangsta'.

You are patient beyond patient. When I don't deserve it, when people that abuse your kindness don't deserve it...and for those in need of Jesus.

On multiple occasions you have sacrificed for others. I mean, what kind of person is willing to forfeit getting their own raise to make sure those that are getting paid hourly get an increase first?

I love that you line dance ...and you teach me how. It makes me laugh when you wear those crazy high cowboy boots (to church:).

...and that puppy dog look you give me when I pick on you or I'm super sarcastic...like it hurt you...and well...you know I can't take that sweet look.

You drive when we're both tired...but you let me sleep.

Thank you for encourage me to follow our calling and our dreams.

Daniel, there are a million more reason why I love you. You're the kind of guy that deserves a standing ovation for the man that you are. You forever have this heart.

How inspirational for you to share your love for your man with all of us who read your blog, that you're not embarrassed to share it. Or for that matter, your love for God!

Thanks for putting a spark in my heart to be sure and tell my sweet guy tonight how much I love and appreciate him.

How sweet! I think you did get a good one... he brought my kids gifts and my husband a racing hat!! He sword fought and took a beating. He's #1 in our house. And...according to John your different/happy since you met him. We couldn't be more thankful for the healing God sent your heart through him. =)
