Sunday Blessings XIII: Fiance Edition

Today, my fiance turns 23 years old! For 11 whole days, we'll be the same age (You caught me! I'm a cradle-robber). So in the spirit of this incredibly wonderful and beautiful day, I've decided to devote April 15th's Sunday Blessings to the man who has blessed me more than I could have ever asked for...

(Bee)autiful Blessings

I asked him last night why he complies with my silly requests all the time- "Baby, will you get me a blanket?", "Will you get me a glass of water?", "Can you turn the heat up?" (I have reptilian blood). You get the picture. As soon as the words come out of my mouth, I regret them. I feel so manipulative because I know he's too sweet and pure-hearted to say no. But the thing is, he chooses to make me happy. Even though he could just as easily say no, he does everything to make me the happiest girl in the world.

I never thought I'd be one to care about money. But as it turns out, not having it, makes you want it. Even though he values my work ethic and my ambition, Chuck takes it upon himself to provide for us. He would literally do anything to ensure that out future family and me are taken care of. It's the safest, most wonderful feeling in the world.

Clearly enjoying being teased during sacred guitar time.

This one seems pretty self-explanatory. It amazes me that after over four months of living together, he still manages to put the hugest smile on my face when he walks through the door. He's the only person in the world who can match my ridiculous, goofy sense of humor and makes every day with him more fun than the one before!

I'm the world's biggest know-it-all. I'm stubborn and am reluctant to listen to advice from anyone. So it comes as a shock to me that every time I'm stressing out, confused or angry Chuck uses his mental ninja skills to read my mind and come up with the absolute perfect thing to say to me. His insight is almost spooky sometimes, but I'm so lucky he understands me as well as he does.

Above all else, Chuck has only just begun to teach me what it truly means to love a person. His love for me has honestly given me a better understanding of Christ's unconditional love. He is sweet, romantic and my best friend in the world.

Happy Birthday Boo!
You are, without a doubt, my biggest blessing.
