I Love You

As I listened to General Conference last weekend, I made a mental note in my head of several things that I needed to do better. One of them was to tell the people you love that you love them. Although I tell Greg everyday that I love him the most, sometimes repetitive things go in one ear and out the other. So as the prophet instructed us all to do. I will try a feeble attempt to let you know, Greg, how much I love you.

You may have noticed that over the years I have let the little things go. I no longer complain about the hair shavings dumped in the sink instead of the garbage, the mountain of tools in our garage, or the VISA purchases that are not written in the checkbook because you are a wonderful husband and father.

Our children love you very much. You are kind,understanding, and find time even working two jobs to be a dad who is always there. You have kept every promise you have made to me since we were dating, and you honor your priesthood. Our family has been blessed because of you.

I love you so much. You are my best friend. I can talk to you about anything. You are stable and constant, and help me through all my emotional needs. You help me accomplish all of my goals. You support me through all of life's decisions that I have made (right or wrong) and you know all my mistakes and faults and still love me unconditionally.

You have tolerance with my cooking and all my crazy wonderful ideas. And you love the special things that I do. You share the responsibility of housework and treat me better than I could ever ask. Thank you Greg for sharing your life with me and for loving me unconditionally. I love you! Cherilee

P.S. I bet you a milkshake it will be a week before you even read this.

I love what you wrote about your husband. He is lucky to have such a great wife, too.

Hey Cherilee, I really didn't get a chance to view your blog at work the other day when everyone was looking at it, but I figured I could look later by finding you through Jamie's blog. Your family is real cute. You're family picture is from a while ago right? Isn't your baby a couple years older now?
I love the picture of you, I'm assuming it's your engagement picture. You haven't changed a bit except for the hair. I can't believe how old your kids are. I remember when you were pregnant with Jenson. Anyways, you're family is real cute. Jamie
