Happy Anniversary to Us!

22 years today. Wow. I can hardly get my mind around that.
So in the spirit of being married 22 years on the 22nd of 02 (Feb) let me list 22 reasons being married to David is just a celebration!

1.He's pretty cute....especially with that salt and pepper hair thing going
2.He's smart
3.And quirky enough that I feel like I have company
4.He is responsible
5.And always looking out for the best for the kids and I
6.He makes a mean cup of tea and we always have 10 o'clock tea at night
7.He enjoys an adventure
8.Loves to travel
9.He'll eat anything
10.But appreciates good food
11.And will watch Food Network with me
12.He does special things for me like putting candles around the bath, leaving me love notes under the pillow etc
13.He is a practical joker - can't count the number of plastic bugs that I have found in my bed
14.He is far from a giggler, but when we laughs it makes you laugh too
15.He is thoughtful
16.Faithful
17.Prayerful
18.Considerate
19.And has one of the highest work ethics of anyone I know
20.His integrity is beyond question
21.He is still on the journey and a life learner with the sole purpose of being more like Jesus
22.And you know what comes here - but to prevent blog spam I will omit the word!

Wow! 22years! You must have been a child bride. :-) Congrats.

John Grant said...

Another amazing thing about David -- he's an incredibly patient man!

Scott said...

"Long-suffering" was more what I had in mind.

Arlene Kasselman said...

Now that John "Bubba Floyd" Grant and Scott have had their fun, let me just say this....HE IS BOTH OF THOSE THINGS, TOO.

I know my limitations guys!

Amy said...

Arlene, I'm afraid you got double-teamed there. And I think John might enjoy getting to know your "friend" Scott. They seem to have a lot in common!

Arlene Kasselman said...

Amy
I am praying they never meet.

preacherman said...

Congratulations!
I am happy for you.
May God bless your marriage in ways you have never dreamed.
Wonderful!!!!!

Scott said...

Even with a double-team, we're probably still outgunned. One of those "mother's daughter" kind of things.

Arlene Kasselman said...

Scott, I am going to take that as a compliment, thank you :-)!!!

HA!

Congratulations, Arlene and David.

10 o'clock tea. . . . Is that a South Africa thing, or just your thing?

Arlene Kasselman said...

Frank
truthfully, South Africans will have a cup of tea just about anytime and anywhere. But, David and I started having a cup of tea while we watched the 10 o'clock news and so it has developed into something we just do.

Happy Anniversary! What a sweet tribute to your man!! Thanks for the note about the gluten free meal . . . it just means no wheat products. You are so sweet and thoughtful!

Be watching your mail when you least expect it...that's all I'm sayin. :)
