For 7 ½ years, I have been married to an incredible man.  There is not a day that

goes by that he can't make me laugh.  He serves in the US Army and is the

most handsome man in uniform.  He is a loving and caring father to our

three children.  He makes me so incredibly happy that I feel spoiled.  My

husband works over 60hrs a week.  Still, when he gets home from work, he

rubs my feet.  Truly, I am married to a special man.

Rick is my best

friend and my husband.  When I am upset or stressed just the touch of his

hand calms me.  He is the kindest and most honest person I have ever met

and he always brings out the best in everyone he meets.   He helps me

around the house with our 2 kids and he can make the best gumbo you have

ever eaten!  Rick is a wonderful husband and father.  He puts God and his

family above everything else.  We have been married for almost 9 years and

I can't imagine my life without him.  I am a better person for knowing

him.

Why my mate is

so special:

 

My husband, Bob, and I are in our seventh year of marriage, and it has

been one of the most stressful and trying years of our lives; but at the

same time, it has been one of the most joyful times of our lives.

 

In August of this past year, we found out that we are expecting our second

baby-- a blessing for which we had hoped.  Four days later, we found out

that Bob was seriously ill, but we were not able to finalize a diagnosis.

Over a period of five agonizing weeks, he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s

disease, cancer of the lymph system-- something we never expected since he

was an otherwise healthy 33 year old.

 

After a lymph node biopsy, bone biopsy and a surgical implant for a

chemotherapy catheter, he has been experiencing the challenges of

chemotherapy for the past five months.  When he is not receiving chemo, he

is taking white blood cell boosting shots, and they make him feel like he

has the flu.  However bad he feels, he manages to maintain his job, be a

supportive husband of an expecting wife and a loving father of a wonderful

two-year-old little girl.  And he does it with out complaining.  His

resolve to make it through this treatment and reclaim a “normal” life is

inspiring.  Our Faith has been tested like never before, and we have been

reminded just how important it is to have Faith, family and friends.

 

There has not been much time for “romance” in all that we’ve been through

lately, but to me, the most romantic thing Bob does for me is to keep on

going to reach the final goal of remission.  Our situation has reminded me

just how special he is to me, and I would like to be able to do something

spectacular to show him how much I love him and how proud I am of him.  I

think the Channel 7 Romancing East Texas Romantic Weekend Get-Away would

be just what the doctor ordered!

Whimsical

romance sparks “flutter” and fantasy,

TRUE romance is “flutter” in everyday reality.

 

I met Jeff at age 15.

Each day since, he’s fulfilled my dreams.

 

Roses, carriages, waterfalls and more,

Our engagement made my heart soar!

 

Two years later, a fantasy wedding,

But into reality we were just getting.

 

Through med school, residency, moves and more,

Our six years of marriage I’ve truly adored.

 

‘Cause each day his love shows in so many ways,

Even-tempered and giving on his toughest of days.

 

Now he’s a Daddy…the best that I’ve seen.

So, when I define “romantic” HE’s what I mean!

My husband,

Matt, is a very special person.  We have been married for 11 1/2 years and

have two young children.  He's special because of what he does EVERY DAY

of our lives.  Our marriage is a true partnership. Matt helps with

anything without even being asked.  He's a great cook, keeps a beautiful

yard, packs lunches in the mornings, and even does some laundry!  He makes

me feel beautiful, loved and appreciated on a daily basis. I'm so blessed

to be married to a man who shows his love for me daily, who makes ME feel

special, and is my best friend. As for the romance...well, that's our

secret!

MY HUSBAND HAS

ALWAYS PUT HIS FAMILY FIRST. WE HAVE BEEN TOGETHER 17 YRS. HE WAS MY FIRST & ONLY TRUE LOVE.EVERYDAY THAT WE ARE TOGETHER I GROW CLOSER & I CANNOT IMAGINE NOT HAVING HIM IN MY LIFE. HE LIKES TO HELP OTHERS. & WISHES THE BEST FOR EVERYONE. HE DID'NT HAVE HIS DAD MUCH WHEN HE WAS YOUNG BUT HE MAKES SURE HIS CHILDREN ALWAYS WERE WELL TAKEN CARE OF IN GOOD TIMES & BAD. I FEEL I AM THE LUCKIEST WOMAN ALIVE TO HAVE A MAN LIKE HIM & I WANT THE WHOLE WORLD TO KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE HIM AND LET HIM KNOW THAT HE IS MY BEST FRIEND, MY LOVER & MY WORLD

My husband,

Charles, never eats the last piece of pie(or the last piece, bite, part of

any food.)  He always saves it for me.  That is true love!

My husband and

I have been married almost five years.  Through divorces, children and

moving from our respective home towns I knew he was the man for me.  His

romance is not saved for Valentines Day, birthdays or anniversaries but

it's everyday.  He takes time for that special look, just drops what he's

doing to take me out for coffee, a "date"once a week. It's stopping at a

roadside stand for quick flowers, it's a bracelet at the bottom of a

glass, it's special occasions for no reason. His spontaneity, blue eyes

and beautiful smile are what makes him romantic!  He always told me to see

me smile he'd go to the end of the earth to keep it there.  I couldn't ask

for more.

First of all,

my girlfriends tell me that I could be a millionaire if only I could clone

my husband.  My husband is the perfect spouse and the perfect daddy. He

cooks, cleans, and he goes to work to allow me the privilege to stay home

and raise our beautiful baby girl.  He makes every holiday special from

birthdays, to Christmas and especially our Anniversary.  He is polite,

courteous, and respectful.  But most of all, he makes me laugh! You can

never be mad at someone that makes you laugh.  Our motto is to live well,

laugh often and love much!

Shortly after Lile and I married my son was shot, literally blowing the front of his

face off.  10 years later,50 reconstruction surgeries and more to come.

Leaving my son blind in one eye and totally disable. My husbands Love has

never waivered.  His 24K Gold heart reflects Gods Love in every Hug, smile

and task that he does for us so loving and freely.

 

I may never win a trip, but I would not trade the Love I feel every day

for all the wealth in this world.

 

ANNA CROWE

 

 

Since my husband is the least romatic guy I know I never suspected him to do what

he did after his company Christmas party. As we were getting ready to

leave he told me an old co working called him on his cell and told him he

was in town and wanted us to come to his hotel and have a drink with him.

So we went. When we got there the man was no where to be found so my

husband called "his room" and we were asked by "the friend" to come up. We

went up and knocked on the door,no one answered. My husband pulled a key

to the room out and we went in. He had been there earlier and had a bottle

of wine cooling candles all around and even thought to pack a little

overnight bag. He didnt even forget my contact solution. WE had a

wonderful night and I love him very much for thinking about me and

planning the whole surprise on his own.

I could tell you my spouse is special because of the way he touches me when we are just

sitting together, how he reaches to hold my hand when we walk, the look in

his eyes when he looks my way, the little things he does when he thinks

I'm not watching, the sound of his voice when I hear him pray, the way we

can sit on opposite sides of the room & feel each others presence without

saying a word, the loving way in which he interacts with his children or

the way he makes our home a refuge. But most of all, it would have to be

his Godly character that shines in all of these other aspects of his life

that makes him so wonderful.  He is my blessing a true one of a kind.
