you know--my husband is a pretty sweet guy. not all of the time, but a lot of the time he is. sometimes I take it for granted. one thing he always does though is compliment me. ALL THE TIME. he always tells me I'm beautiful. he calls me his "trophy wife" even when i explain that a trophy wife should be 20 years old...not 43!! he makes me feel good about myself.
so today when i left for church he told me I looked like a guess model. and when i got home from church he told me he wanted to take a picture of me so he could have one. so i let him. now, I'm lookin' at the photo and i don't see a guess model in sight. i see all my flaws. i see a body that's given birth to a lot of children. wrinkles. laugh lines, you name it. but behind the camera there's a man who sees my beauty and who praises it and never lets a moment go by that he doesn't tell me how lucky he is. funny, i think i'm the lucky one...L
