What I Love About My Wife

I worry that what I love about my wife gets lost in the hub-bub of daily life so I wanted to document what makes Jessica invaluable to me.

1- Intelligence

I love living with a woman who has a million thoughts about what goes on in her relationships, within our home, in the community we live in and in the world at large.  She has valuable insights that I want to hear.  When I have ideas that I think are important I look for her to get her input.  Her perspective is often different than mine and I love her for sharing it with me as mine isn't complete without it.  She has at least 3 books that she is working on at any given time.  She is our family's dictionary and resident grammarian.  When she is responsible for something, you can be sure that she is (or has) studied it thoroughly.  My time is best spent engaging her in conversation. I love it.

I absolutely love, and find incredibly touching, that you wanted to make sure that she knows what you love and appreciate about her is not, "lost in the hub-bub" of daily life.

Jessica is really, really special. I consider her one of my dearest friends even though I have never met her in person. I think it is because she is so expressive even in the written word. I crave her perspective and I don't really even, "know" her.

Such a lovely post. :)
