As you know, Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. I thought I'd write a little something about my valentine. My wife Robyn is possibly the most amazing person I've ever met. Sometimes I feel bad for every other man that lives on the earth. It often occurs to me that every other man should be jealous of me, because it's not humanly possible for any other wife to be as amazing as mine. (Of course, I hope that all of them feel that way about their wives, even if they are wrong because mine truly is the best.)
I just wanted to share a few of the things that I love about Robyn. So if you don't want to read mushiness, you should probably walk away now. You can join me again with my next post. I promise not to be offended.
Without further ado, here are a few of the things that make Robyn great.
Did I mention that Robyn planned a Nerf archery date? Who does that? I love that she is super creative, and always comes up with great ideas.
I'm the assistant cub scout master in my ward. The cub master is always impressed with the games I come up with. One time he asked me where I get such great ideas. I told him that my wife came up with it. Now I'm always in charge of talking to Robyn to get great ideas from her. That's how creative and brilliant she is.
She helps me be healthy
As most of you know, Robyn and I have lost a lot of weight over the past couple years. I've lost more than her, but that's because I had more to lose. It's also because she has been such a great support system. She loves to exercise with me. Together we've gotten into hiking, Scuba Diving, backpacking, and we even tried snow shoeing. She encourages me to spend time getting more healthy, and she makes super delicious meals that are low calorie but satisfying and scrumptious. Basically, she should get all of the credit for working hard to lose the weight she's lost, and she should get 70% of the credit for all the weight I've lost.
Robyn loves people. She genuinely cares about how others feel. She cares about the well-being of others and she goes out of her way to take care of people. She does so many things for me that I can't even count, and she is constantly helping out other people, whether it be at work, or in the ward or in her family, she never passes up an opportunity to serve.
She's a hard worker
Robyn is not afraid to roll up her sleeves and get to work. Whether it's working extra hours at work, or doing various menial tasks at home, she is always up for the challenge.
She's a thinker
I can't tell you how many times I've heard something in the news and I just can't wait to get home and ask Robyn about it. I find it so stimulating to hear her thoughts and to get her perspective. She really thinks about things and I absolutely love hearing what she has to say.
Basically, Robyn is the complete package. I'm sorry to every other guy in the world. I wish your wife could be as awesome as mine. This list is by no means comprehensive. I could write a novel. The point is: Robyn, I love you. I love you more than bacon. I love you more than great books. I'm so happy that you are my Valentine. Happy Valentine's Day!
