Sandi McBride said...

Teresa, you give that man a big hug and tell him it's from all of us! You know the most telling thing about your list was the first thing you said...he loves the Lord...if you don't love the Lord, you can not love anything. I think about the poor girls and young women who die in honor killings (do they ever kill their sons for dishonoring the family? NO) If they loved the Lord, this would never happen...sorry, got off the subject of your WONDERFUL HUSBAND! Mine is pretty swell, too so guess we're awfully lucky! Think you'll keep him?
hugs

What a great birthday tribute to your hubbin'(I love that). You sound like you picked a winner. Happy Birthday Hubbin'! And I like the photo of you both.

Jennifer said...

Awww! That was so sweet!

I don't know if you remember but back in Nov. I left a comment to your post about your dog's "love issues" and the problems by brother-in-law was having breeding their English Setter. Well last week she gave birth to one pup. Have you ever heard of that, one lone pup. Cutest thing ever though and they are keeping him.
Smiles!

What a sweet way to honor your wonder hubbin'! I loved it!

I'm getting caught up from the last couple of weeks ... Enjoyed your "hands" post. With 2 falls in such a short period of time, are you sure that you and the Boston wino don't have something in common?

(just joking ....)

I'm with your sister on this..."#6 He EVEN loves my family". LOL LOL LOL Girl, you have GOT to learn to be more discreet when you're discribing your own relatives. They always seek revenge, don't 'cha know. :)

Tell your husband Happy Belated Birthday from me! (It's natural that I would be late...I'm late for everything anymore!).

Julie said...

I did that for my husband the year he turned 40... I've got one more year till he turns 50. So I need to start thinking.

The year I gave him the "40 things I love about you" He was so blessed. He loved it.

You know how much a man thrives on affirmations from his bride.

It was precious to see you honor him.

I am new to blogging and am enjoying following trails and finding people.

It's nice to meet you,
Blessings,
Julie

What a wonderful person you have described. How fortunate you both are!

I'm sure your family brings happiness to many people.

Thank you so much for your kind words about sweet Kayla.

You know, I never noticed the heart on her face until you pointed it out. Now, I'm really crying.

Please give your Maggie a hug from us.

Strawberry Lane said...

Teresa,
Just read your wonderful message about how and why you got your Maggie. What a sweet girl she must be.

About my tears over the heart on Kayla's face that you mentioned. Let me say that it was one of those "ahhh" moments ... when we went back to look.

So very glad you saw it. We are so grateful to you for bringing it to our attention.
