Romancing East Texas

Page 7

Special is the perfect word to describe my husband of 31/2 years.  What make me look at C. E. and feel that undesirable drive to make love with him?Eyes has 2;

muscles  has some, nice trucke has one; fine wardrobe if you like casual.

But the most enduring thing about my 74 year old husband is the way he

makes me feel.  20 not 54;size 10 not 18;. I feel beautiful,love,admired

and chareshed by C. E. He make me feel sexie if I am in overalls in

garden;suite going to church; or my most lovely night thing. attire.

My husband is a God sent angel. This is our first valentine’s day as a married couple.

When he proposed to me he tied a string to my finger and asked him to tell

him what he told me our very first date, “Love is a tie between two people that can not be broken by anyone or anything.” As I was telling him this he tied a string on my finger and slid the ring down the string onto my finger. We were a mist a sea of roses.  God has richly blessed my life by adding Kirk.

The man i married is the most caring loving person I have ever met...In our 9 yrs of marriage he has show his love every day by the little things he does..This love of my life though his 8 back surgery's,The lost of his father, has never for one day stopped.He can do the smallest things that really mean so much... He travels so there is little time for the two of us.But when he arrives home he never stops reminding me how special i am to him.If i want to go somewhere or just hang out at home....He's there to please me and show just how special i am to him...He cooks a wonderful dinner and we enjoy each other's company. A romantic get away with this man would be wonderful.

My wife Rose is special in many ways; the important one is how she puts up with me. I have medical problems (MS and a brain tumor) and she has helped me through the

moods that I'm going through. She always puts others before herself and is

a very powerful tower of strenght We will be celebrating our 3rd Anniversary this October and due to the fact that we did not take a honeymoon she did not care because we have each other. This would be my way (if chosen) to show how much I love her.

She is my friend, who can talk to about anything, that I need to. She is there for me,when I have had bad day at work.  She is the queen of my heart. we have

Been married for two years.and I have not been able to take for a nice

Romantic dinner,ever since we have been married.

The thing that makes my husband so special is all the "little" day to day things that he

does to help out! In June we will be married 30 years and I know it's pretty common for young men now days to help out around the house but most 50 year old men I know don't. I never have to ask he just does it willingly! He does all the laundry all the time and helps to pick up and then we take turns cooking breakfast and supper. Winning this contest would be nice, but either way I win!

THE NIGHT HE PURPOSED TO ME.... MY FRIEND AND I WERE MEETING MY NOW HUSBAND AND HER BOYFRIEND AT A CLUB. WE PULLED OVER AT A STORE BECAUSE MY FRIEND SUPPOSELY NEEDED TO USE THE BATHROOM. SHE LOCKED THE KEYS IN THE CAR LEAVING US STRANDED. SOON A LIMO PULLS UP AT A DISTANCE THE DRIVER GETS OUT AND ACTS AS IF HES TRYING TO GET SOMETHING OUT OF THE TRUNK. HE HOLLARS OVER TO US TO PLEASE HELP HIM, AS I WALKED UP TO THE LIMO THE DRIVER THROWS DOWN A RED CARPET IN FRONT OF THE BACK DOOR, OUT POPS MY HUSBAND DOWN ON ONE KNEE WITH A DOZEN ROSES AND A RING WITH THE SONG "I CAN LOVE YOU LIKE THAT" PLAYING IN THE BACKGROUND. HE RECITES A POEM THAT HE WROTE AND ASKS ME TO MARRY HIM, INSIDE THE LIMO ARE ALL MY CLOSE FRIENDS. THAT WAS THE MOST ROMANTIC NIGHT OF MY LIFE.

 

CHRISTY BAKER

 

 

My mother says that 18 years ago I married the only man that never brought me flowers.

Romance in the traditional sense has never been my husband's strong point. However, those unexpected kisses in the midst of a chaotic day, the hands wrapped around my waist as I cook and the support he has given as I returned to school and started a new career more than make up for the flowers.  He unconditionally loves me and our three children and nothing could ever compare to that.  Last Valentine's Day he planted a rose garden to make sure I always had flowers.  I smile every time I walk by them.

 

 

I have been blessed with a man who thrills in washing my hair, making me candles and

bath salts.  He takes care of my children like they are his own.  And even

though I'm the one versed in martial arts, he is always there in case I

need it. He's such a great guy (and a terrific romantic), my kids proposed

to him!  He insists on giving me silk every Mother's day because I still

have the "stuff" that makes him want to make me a mother again!!!!  I

think he hung the moon and stars-I'm a very lucky woman.

 

Alana Allen

 

 

 

I am blessed by God to have the most wonderful, caring husband I could have ever hoped for. I remember growing up and imagining the kind of man I would marry and

spend the rest of my life with. He has exceded my expectations in the 8 years since we were wed.  It is not because he buys me flowers or takes me out on fancy dates, although sometimes he does. It is because he listens to me, understands me, prays for me, and tries to be the best husband and father he can be. I feel loved and protected, and to me that is romance at it's best, every day.

 

Kim Sallee

 

 

From the first time I met my husband he has always done little things that made him very special.  But the one thing I find most romantic about him is his love for my children. I have three children from a previous marriage. He has stepped in and took them as his own.  The love you see in his eyes when he is with them is amazing. Now we are about to be grandparents, and the love in his eyes from our grandchild is unreal.  This is what I find most romantic about him, His heart!

 

Dorothy Carmichael

 

 

MY HUSBAND DOES SO MANY THOUGHTFUL THINGS.  HE BRINGS ME FLOWERS AND GIFTS FOR NO SPECIAL REASON.  THE MOST SPECIAL GIFT HE HAS EVER GIVEN ME IS MY DIAMOND ANNIVERSARY RING.  HE OVERHEARD ME TELLING A FRIEND ABOUT MY DIAMOND WEDDING RINGS FROM MY FIRST HUSBAND BEING REPOSSESSED WHEN I WAS 20 YEARS OLD AND 9 MONTHS PREGNANT.  I WAS 58 YEARS OLD AND HAD NEVER HAD A DIAMOND RING SINCE THEN.  WHEN HE GAVE ME MY RING, HE TOLD ME IT WAS PAID FOR AND IT WOULD NEVER BE REPOSSESSED.  THIS IS NOT THE FIRST MARRIAGE FOR EITHER

OF US.  WE LOVE EACH OTHER DEEPLY AND WE FINALLY GOT IT RIGHT.

 

Billie Robertson

 

 

Nine years and six months ago I had breast cancer mastectomy.  Due to a drain tube and cut nerves I could not raise my arm. I was in tears because I could not keep up my appearance by washing my hair etc. My husband put the lawn lounge chair next to the bathtub.  I laid in it and he washed my hair over the tub that way for several weeks. He even tried his hand at the curling iron and blow dryer.  After six months of kemo, my hair almost gone, again I was in tears and asked him if he would go out in public with me when I was bald.  His reply was "of course I will, everyone will think we are brothers"!  It's hard to cry when you are laughing so hard.These are only two of the wonderful way my husband has shown me how much he loves me for fifteen years.

 

Marcie Toups

 

 

Starting with the our first anniversary, he always makes sure that it is a moment to

remember. You see, our anniversary is Feb. 24th so we kinda wait until then to celebrate. 1st anniversary, he taped himself in front of a video camera telling me

how much he loved me and during the film, he had pictures of our wedding,

and he sang "Here There and Everywhere" by the Beatles throughout the video. He blind folded me and took me to the Residence Inn and there he had placed roses and our anniverary meal was Whataburger. During some of the anniversaries, we did not have enough money to really celebrate but we always managed to get the "I love you's" to each other. Last year, he surprised me my taking me to Madrid and Barcelona Spain and then to Paris France. We had a ball. He always is telling me how much he loves me and shows me that in everything he does.  You see, since 9/11, he now works in Dallas and we are separated for the first time in our marriage.  Actually, I believe that has strengthen our marriage.  But, he always calls me, every night to tell me how much he loves me.... And that is what makes Bruce so special to me.

 

Cathy Adams

 

 

I am blessed to spend my married life with such a gifted and devoted man.  His compassion, sincerity, and fun-loving personality spill over into every aspect of his

life.  In his professional role as police officer, my husband proficiently yet thoughtfully cares for the community of Tyler, Texas.  As a father, my husband's eyes sparkle with joy when interacting with his son, continually teaching and inspiring his young mind.  In addition, he never neglects the role of husband.  His romantic nature of leaving love letters in the most unusual places and his selflessness of insuring that my emotional needs are always met, prove to me continually that he is amazing!

 

Ashley Davis

 

 

My husband supports me in everyway.  He has been there for me through the good and bad times.  After ten and a half years of marriage we still talk twice a day after he leaves for work.  Before I leave for work and during lunch we check on each other just to see how the day is going.  He is a wonderful Christian husband and father.  He spends quality time with the family. My husband Bill is the love of my life and my forever love.

 

Nancy Slack

 

 

My husband is not a romantic person.  He doesn't always remember special dates or occasions.  He doesn't send me flowers or gift me with diamonds. He is sometimes selfish, a little grouchy, and quite stubborn. What makes him so special is his gorgeous ice blue eyes.  Even after 24 years of marriage, when I look into those eyes I still feel like a teenager in love. For when he looks at me now, he sees my soul and all of the good and bad within me. No words between us are necessary. The romance is in those eyes.

 

Rhonda McIntyre

 

 

When I was a teen I romanticized about marriage, my first marriage came to a terrible

end, divorce with 3 kids. I was shattered bubble burst. Then along came a prince, took myself and 3 small maidens into his heart. He became my husband and their Dad and took the job seriously, but the way he went about it made it not a job but a pleasure. Why is he so romantic? He made me believe dreams are possible.

My name is Samantha Davis and I will be getting married march 1 2003.my soon to be

husband is the best man in the world I meet him about 2 and a half years ago.he new that i had a son and for once it didn't make a differance.he was always the best father that i could have ever found for my son.not only did he love the both of us he wanted to take care of us.there are very few people who will raise someone else's child and love that child like there own. and not only do we have my child but we have a child together. i am a stay at home mom and john works so hard to support all of us.he works out of town from monday until friday night.and no matter how tired he is when he gets home he always makes time for me.i know that he will not only be the best father but he will also be the best husband. i guess the best part of john is how loving and understanding he  is.that would be the reason i think he should win this.he is not only loving and

understanding but he is also hard working and very depenable.

What makes my spouse so special is that he  loves me unconditionally.  We've been

married for 11 years and out of the 11 years I've had some pretty rough

times with sickness. I've spent a lot of time in the hospitals and he has

never left my side.  We have 3 children and some of the times he has had

to be Mother and Father.  Although he has health problems of his own, he

always takes my feelings into consideration before he thinks about

himself. And that is why he is so special and has a special place in my

heart.

MY SPOUSE,CAME TO ME THROUGH THE PRAYERS OF GOD,WHEN MY LIFE

WAS SO EMPTY HE IS MY ROCK,I THANK GOD EVERY DAY I SPEND WITH HIM.

 

nell jones

 

 

We’d been married 2½ years and recently moved. I was miserable. One day he came

home, walked in the door, and stated unhappily: “get the thing out of the

car”.  Puzzled, I went to the car and found a kitten.  My husband’s not a

cat lover but had endured an hour’s drive with a bawling kitten to bring

me a companion. Now, fast-forward 8 years.  I’m home from college for the

weekend and “Gidget’s” food dish seems untouched.  Before his words could

explain, his tears for the pet he “despised” told me she was gone.  Need I

say more?

 

Mary Russell

 

 

 

At the age of 51, when I was getting a divorce after 32 years, he was my "Knight in

shining armor." I was in the midst of trying to understand what I had done wrong.  My

mother and sister had breast cancer and I was in the process of having a

double breast biopsy.  My children were in shock from the divorce and

didn't know where to turn. I met Dan on the internet as a pen pal.  He impressed  me with his intelligent philosphy about life.  He had gone though a divorce after 25

years of marriage. After several months of e-mail and then phone calls, we finally met.  He had the most beautiful smile and I was just struck silent by his tender

hands touching my face and asking permission to kiss me. We were married 2 months later and our love grows more heavenly each day, and 2 years later, I know what "LOVE" is all about.  He writes love notes on our bathroom mirror.  He tells me  how beautiful I am in his eyes and his heart!  What else could a woman ask for?  He has

made me believe that love does exist.

 

Sommer, Debrah

 

 

 

My husband is not romantic in the normal sense of the word . . . but he is the most

romantic person to me in many ways. He is a good man and a no-nonsense

person who works very, very hard to provide a good home for us. He is very

handsome, dependable, responsible and caring. He respects me, our

relationship and believes in God. What truly makes him romantic is that he

is always there for me -- In a world that sometimes seems crazy, it is

good to have a good down-to-earth man like Robin.

 

Pamela Moir

 

 

we've been together a long time imagine if you can, getting told "I love you". an

exact quote would be "I love you baby".  Somewhere there is a song I don't

know the name of it but there are these words in it. kind of along the

line of a Four Seasons kind of tune.  Well, my husband, and i am not

exagerating one tiny bit opens his mouth and comes out with these lyrics i

would under guess probably fifty times a day.  I do love him and I know he

loves me, and may lightning stike me if i am not telling the truth,

because he says this continually, day in and day out for as long as i can

remember.  P.S.  it kind of drives me crazy...i would have to talk to you

in person for you to actually understand how this darling little song has

almost pushed me over the brink and he doesn't have a clue because i can't

bare to tell him...because i love him tremendously...

MY HUSBAND BRYAN IS NOT MECHANICALLY INCLINED; USUALLY MISSES THE TRASH MAN BY A DAY OR TWO AND SOMEHOW THINKS THAT THE DIRTY CLOTHES WILL MAGICALLY MAKE THERE WAY TO THE LAUNDRY ROOM BY THEMSELVES BUT I HAVE NEVER FELT MORE LOVE FROM ANYONE IN MY LIFE.HE REMEMBERS THE EXACT DATE THAT HE TOLD ME HE LOVED ME

AND QUIZZES ME EVERY NOW AND AGAIN JUST FOR FUN AND WHEN HE PROPOSED HE MADE ME TWO PROMISES..ONE- HE WOULD LOVE ME ALWAYS AND TWO- HE WOULD MAKE ME SMILE EVERYDAY. I'M GLAD TO SAY

THAT AFTER 7 YEARS MARCH 9TH HE HASN'T GONE BACK ON HIS WORD.

 

CINDY ATCHLEY

 

 

Charles and I have only been married for a year. It took us thirty years to get together

but in that year he has proven to be one of the most thoughtful men that I

have ever meet.He is extremely considerate of my feelings and never lets a

day go by without telling me that he loves me and  that is everytime he

talks to me. when ever he calls me on the phone before our conversation

ends he says I love you baby.My husband is a minister and he will stand

before any congregation and exclaim his love for me.

 

evelyn cummings

 

 

I think he is so special to me because he has always been thier for me when I needed him the most. he was the one to get out of bed at 3 am to take care of our

son. He works so hard so I can stay home to care for our son. We got married

in 1998 but never had the money for a honey moon he needs it. I love him

some much I can not wait to wake each morning to see him. he is my true

soul mate.

 

Carrie

 

 

I don't know if 100 words is enough.  We got married May 11th, 2002.  Since then I have

had multiple health problems - a couple which have left me bedridden.  My husband Phillip, who had never been married before, had to step up to the plate.  He has given his heart, sole and time to our family.  He assumed all the household chores, took care of me, played the role of Mommy and Daddy to my 6 year old, and took up a second job to replace my lost income.  He did all this with no complaints.  We haven't even had time to enjoy being husband and wife.

 

Kristen Norrell

 

 

My husband is the most romantic man alive! Why? Because he ADORES me and always treats me like a queen.  He runs my bath (with candles) at night, lays my night

clothes out for me, brings me flowers regularly and still writes me

loveletters and we have been together almost a decade.  Last Valentine's

he sent me on a treasure search around town where he had left goodies for

me. I ended up at home, following a trail of rose petals to our bed, which

was also filled with roses and petals. No other man can compare!!!

 

Lea Ann Day

 

 

 

My husband is the most compassionate, thoughtful, caring and loving person I have ever

met. He always puts everyone elses needs in front of his own. He is the most loving man. My husband is so special, not just to me but to everyone who has ever met him because of his positive, helpful,caring and loving personallity. I am so proud to have him as my husband and the father of our beautiful 2 year old daughter. His ability to put others needs in front of his own is a very rare, special and much appreciated quality!

 

Thanks, Aubrey Ross

 

 

MY WIFE AND I WILL HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR 25 YEARS ON FEBUARY 14TH ,AND AFTER 25 YEARS SHE STILL MAKES ME FEEL LIKE THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN THE WORLD.SHE HAS MY COFFEE READY FOR ME EVERY MORNING, AND SHE PRAYS FOR ME CONTINUALLY.IT JUST DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT.SHE IS THE BEST THERE IS AND GOD GAVE HER TO ME.

 

JESSIE SPENCE

 

 

We've been married for 20 years and Dave still treats me like a queen.I clean houses

and I am often very tired. On the days that I have off he will bring me my coffee and then offer to take the kids to school so I can sleep longer!  It doesn't matter how tired he is, he will help with the laundry and anything I need help with. Yesterday was my 41st birthday and I got to church and there on my seat was a card and a chocolate rose. He makes my heart sing and I am blessed.

Connie has gone through many trials in her life.  Her faith was tested tragically three years ago when her step-daughter shot and killed her dad and brother before taking her own life. This left Connie a widow who had to make three funeral arrangements two days before Christmas in 1999. After much soul searching and a lot of counselling she is learning a degree at A&M Commerce to be a social worker for crime victims. She is a survivor her inspires me daily. I'm not sure I could raise my two teen boys without her help. Her affection and , grace is not only food for my soul but she leaves my heart

eagerly awaiting dessert. Also, her birthday is Feb. 14th. We married Dec. 15th 2002. She is my Connie Baby.

 

Owen Bickford

 

 

My husband is the most romantic man because of his little impromptu acts of his thoughtfulness.  He calls me at work and leaves messages just to tell me he loves me and hopes I am having a good day.  One Friday after a terrible day at work, I walked in and found a candlelit bubble bath ready, soft music playing, a fire in the fireplace, and the table set with candles and china.  He fixed and served a marvelous dinner and spent the remainder of the evening just pampering me with no expectation of anything in return. Now that's romance!!

 

Carla Gleaton

 

 

I suppose the one attribute that makes my husband of 37 years so special is his ability

to communicate to me that I am "Cherished".  I would say this is the most romantic quality a man can give his wife.  One example of this is the following letter he wrote one day while I was out shopping:

DAD'S EYES -- Now that I have experienced life, and know that time stands still for no one, I look in the mirror and come face to face with this man.  I stare into his eyes, looking past his gray hair and wrinkled face only to glance into his inner soul and to see a young child full of life, and eager to see what life would bestow upon him.  How I was so blessed to have met, dated, and married this young, beautiful lady with a heart of gold, and an angelic smile that has indeed made me feel special and warm inside.  Just knowing Jerry Lynn Butler did choose me as her partner in life, sent us on a journey only to experience the most precious possession God could give a man and wife - Children.  Sharlyn, Stephen, Brady and Beth, when you look at my eyes and gaze into the depths of my soul, you will see a Dad that is proud of each of you.  A Dad that loves and wants to hold you to make everything that disturbs you go away.  Yes, Look into my eyes and know that I am blessed because of my Wife and Children. Husband and Dad, Stephen A. McGhee

 

J. McGhee

 

 

MY SPOUSE IS SO SPECIAL I WAKE EACH MORNING TO"GOOD MORNING BEAUTIFUL TIME TO GET UP" EVEN THOUGH I KNOW BEAUTY IS NO WHERE NEAR BY.   HE DOES THE SHOPPING THING  WITH ME JUST BECAUSE" HE WOULD MISS ME TOO MUCH",NOT BECAUSE HE ENJOYS IT.  THERE IS NOT JUST ONE THING THAT MAKES MY SPOUSE SPECIAL,HE IS A SPECIAL

PACKAGE...   HE HAS THE GIFT OF ENCOURAGING WORDS, UNSELFISHNESS, GOOD-HEARTEDNESS.  HE IS MY BEST FRIEND!  THE MOST SUPER SPECIAL SPOUSE A PERSON COULD PRAY FOR. GOD GAVE HIM TO ME!

 

" PROOF OF PRAYER", CAROL

 

 

The one thing that makes my spouse so special is her sensitivity and devotion.  We have

been through everything together, from a long stretch of unemployment, to battling our families. No matter what has come our way, she is the one who can and has always seen the up-side of the situation. It is one of the qualities that I wish that I had, or for that matter that we all had. I was involved in an accident while driving over the road with a major trucking company, and without her love and support, I don’t think I could have made it through it. She even offered to come to North Carolina to get me!!!! If that's not sensitivity and devotion, I don't know what is!

 

Garey Lowery

 

 

My husband loves me no matter what. When I am mad, or blue or just need a good cry he is there. And he'll say I love you sweetpea when he knows I need him.

 

Rebecca Buess

 

 

My husband is such a romantic. Even though we were married on Sept. ll, 2001, amid the terrorist tragedy that was unfolding in NYC, he has done his best to

ensure that our marriage and life together are absolutely wonderful. While

we were dating, he brought me flowers every day from his rose garden. In

fact, he even made my wedding bouquet from his own roses. He plans

surprise get-away weekends for us that absolutely leaves me speechless.

Once he took me to the top of Pikes Peak in Colorado and gave me diamond

earrings. He writes love letters to me and leaves romantic cards on the

table for me. He is a true sweetheart and the honeymoon will never end.

What Makes Your Spouse So Special?    (100 words or less): My husband

Doyle and I met when I was three months pregnant.  My child's father had

left.  When I met Doyle I thought he was great.  About a week later I went

to his house and we talked for hours.  He made me feel good again.  My son

was born in April 1994, Doyle and I married in February 1995, and I graduated college in 1998.  Doyle has raised my son as his own and loves him so much!  I guess the saying is true.  Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Dad!

 

Kelli Parker

 

 

My husband, David, is and has been VERY SPECIAL for 41+ years.  He is tender, kind, and shows it in lots of ways. He never leaves home without kissing me goodbye, worries about me and even writes poems to me. He has brought me roadside wild flowers just because he has heard me say how beautiful they are. It is and has always been the little ways he shows he cares that has built and strengthen our Love and Bond. The phone calls just to say hello, or to tell me of some thing special he has seen, or to share a funny story with me. He has substance, value, good humor and a joy for living.  David has been my Prince Charming since May of 1960 when we met at Lake Houston. I was 16 and he was 21 and my Mother said it wouldn't last.  We married 7-22-'61. I choose well.

 

Patty Clark

 

 

My spouse is very special to me. We were friends for about 5 yrs. before this relationship took place. To me he is my best friend. He is very attentive is small ways. I am addictive to diet cokes like some people are with coffee in the morning. I get out of the shower & there is my diet coke waiting for me. He makes me feel very special. He never hesitates in telling me how much he loves me every day. He is the love of my life & wish everyone could experience the happiness of being with their best friend for live.
