Hey guess what, there are only 10 more days left until it is our 11 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!!! Let the count down begin. That's right on August 31 Aslan's Child (Susan) and I, LargeOne50 (John) will be celebrating our 11th year as husband and wife. A couple of months ago we both thought that we might not make it this far. However, with the grace of God, Joel & Kathy, and countless hours on the weekly phone calls with everyone teaching/threatening me at times we have turned our marriage around. I just wanted to thank everyone who has offered support, encouragement, advice, and help. We couldn't have done it without you. ::clap ::clap ::clap
As for my beautiful wife, thank-you, thank-you, thank-you, I definitely could not be in this position I am now without you opening your heart back up to me. I am so greatful that you are allowing me a chance to win your heart back. :D When you told me a few months ago that you were not in love with me anymore, that was the most hurtful thing anyone could have ever said to me. :( However, we reap what we sow. So I guess it is my own fault for not taking better care of my crops. I look forward to the day when I can harvest my new crop grown with love, kindness, understanding, patience, acceptance, and validation, yes there is definitely lots of validation growing in our fields of love. The best present you can ever give to me is telling me that you fell head over heels in love with me again. I can't wait to hear those wonderful words spoken from your soft lips.

Happy Anniversary eve, eve, eve, eve, eve, eve, eve, eve,eve, eve.

Anyway this countdown will continue for the next 10 days. Your mission should you choose to accept it, is to be sure to check back to see what new thoughts I will have each day. This post will self destruct after you have read it (Mission Impossible reference in case you didn't get the joke) although I guess we can have a new maradigm "Marriage Possible" when you listen to your wife's heart.

Love is... shoveling your Moms driveway that first night we met in the ice storm just so I could spend more time getting to know you. ::love

Love is... you leaving me a note on a napkin about a month latter saying "I love you very much, and I look forward to a wonderful life together". I'm looking at that very napkin right now, yep I kept it all these years!!! ::love

Love is... keeping a napkin with a love note on it for over 14 years!!! ::love

Love is... keeping the first roses I ever sent you in a shadow box on our wall for 14 years because your Grandparents told you that if you keep the first roses, your love for each other will last as long as you have the roses. (I hope I got that right) ::love

I love you my Sunshine,

Love,

Your Angel

Hi there once again. Hey guess what, only 9 more days until our 11th anniversary. Yesterday I got to watch Susan's reaction to what I posted the day before. She just loved it. So here are some more thoughts on love. On our bithdays we try to show each other that they are the most special, most cherished, most loved, most important person in the whole wide world.
Here are many examples of how Susan and I show love for each other on our birthdays through the years.

Love is...going out for dinner and having a view of the Chicago skyline at night 70 floors up and when dessert is served the plate reads "Happy Birthday Susan" in chocolate with a candle lit on the cake and the band playing Happy Birtday in the background. Say it with me everyone...awe!

Love is... having someone deliver a dozen roses and balloons to you in the middle of your class.

Love is...our bedroom floor and bed coverd in balloons with little presents holding down the ones floating in the air.

Love is... a hot air ballon ride at sunset.

Love is... sending an angel with wings and a halo to your work playing the harp and singing "Angel Eyes" by Jeff Healy in front of all your co-workers in the meeting room. From then on I new I had to marry Susan if I was going to do all that for her. ::love ::love ::love

Love is...a front yard full of giant hearts and smiley faces. :D :D :D

Love is... your work place lawn cover in giant swans and hearts.

Love is... your front yard full of giant golf balls and angels because one you play and one you are. ::love

Love is... your front yard full of giant multi colored flamingos...from your cat.

Love is... getting your own chalet for the night and having her wedding drees waiting there for you so you can go out to dinner dressed up as the bride and groom. Then have your own private intimate room at the resturant for a great fondue dinner.

Love is...picking your wonderful wife up for dinner in a limo and starring at her because she looks so incredibly beautiful dressed in her gown.

Love is... a quite romantic candle lit dinner for 2 at home.

Love is...getting a dozen multi colored roses because those are her favorite.

Love is...going power para-gliding at sunset.

Love is... chocolate chip pancakes in bed.

Love is...decorating the house the night before so when you wake up, the house is filled with banners and streamers and balloons.

Love is... pulling off a huge surprise party (basically a mini wedding reception) for your husband with over 100 of his friends and family members for his 40th. Plus, to make sure he wasn't on to the surprise you did it in September even though his birthday is in April. Now that is what LOVE IS.

Yes these are just a few of the ways Susan and I show how much we love each other.

Happy Anniversary eve, eve, eve, eve, eve, eve, eve, eve, eve. ::love

I love you,

Your Angel

AW!!!! :oops: :lol: :rotfl:

What else can I say? Your posts are beautiful! I am looking forward to our OHM, too!!!

I don't have as many "Love is" to add, but here's some from me:

Love is . . . letting your wife go to bed early because she is exhausted, even though you would rather spend all evening with her.

Love is . . . thanking your wife's counselor for taking of her through our trials (I couldn't pay, but my counselor continued to see me, anyway).

Love is . . . brushing your cat because she won't let your wife do it.

Love is . . . throwing paper balls for your cat to chase, then picking them all up later without ever once complaining.

Happy anniversary eve, eve, eve, eve, eve, eve, eve, eve, eve right back at you! ::love

Hey this might not be the time to bring it up, but I do recall that Jeff made the plans for their anniversary not too long ago and both had a great time. I got your back Jeff. But anyway, you can still turn it up a notch, you have some catching up and making up to do. Call me if you want some ideas. :rotfl:

Okay, I'm starting to think that LO may be ready to meet my shark of a fish, Bruce ???

Happy Anniversary EVE eve eve.....................

So happy for you, both.........Can I put my bb. bats away now ?? Season is over.... ( or, perhaps, I need to keep one out for Bruce ? )

Only 7 more days! Beat ya, today, Hon! :lol:

Love is . . . jumping out of the hot tub to rush to your wife's side when she tells you she needs your help because she fell. (In the past, he just commented "from the sidelines" what I should do when I was hurt.)

Love is . . . GENTLY applying ice packs and helping your wife get comfortable in spite of her injuries.

When you jumped out of the hot tub last, and rushed to my side, I felt like the most cherished wife on the planet. Thank you, my Hero!!! :eyes:

Love . . . reassuring your wife that you will get her whatever she needs so she can let her sprained ankle heal. (Which is probably the only reason I beat him to our Anniversary String today.) :wink:

Love is . . . believing the best in your husband, even though his actions tell you something different.

Love is . . . God rewarding you for your faithfulness as your husband works hard to become the man of your dreams.

Happy Anniversary eve, eve, eve, eve, eve, eve, eve. :eyes:

Good morning everybody. It' getting closer, 6 short days left until our 11th Anniversary! ::clap

If you have been reading this string you have seen many different ways Susan and I show our love for each other. We also encourage you to add to our string ways in which love is a part of your life.

Now back to our story.

Love is...trying to out-do each other to see who can quote more lines while watching the show Friends. :rotfl:

Love is...putting lotion on your husbands back.

Love is...appreciating all the little thing you do for each and saying thanks.

Love is...snuggling on the couch watching TV.

Love is...spending hours making a gift for your husband because it means much more then just buying something. That way you can pour your love into what you are making. ::love

Love is...decorating the outside of birthday cards.

Love is...spending hours thinking about more love is sayings to show your love :D

Love is...20 kisses in 10 seconds or less (go ahead try it, I dare you). :D

Love is...waving good-bye and blowing kisses every time you leave the house. ::love

Love is...going to dozens of stores just to find the PERFECT heart shaped diamond engagement ring. :eyes:

Love is...giving your wife a gold heart shaped pillow and telling her you got this for her because you think she has a heart made of gold.

Love is...sneaking back into a store to buy your wife a ring she fell in love with for your anniversary.

Love is...watching a sunset together.

Love is...getting a cat even if you hate cats because you know it will make your wife so happy. :P

Love is...saying "I love you" every time you leave or hang-up the phone because if you die you want those to be your lasts words ever spoken to each other. ::love :eyes: ::love

Happy Anniversary eve, eve, eve, eve, eve, eve.

Have a great week my love,

I love you,

Love,

Me

We also encourage you to add to our string ways in which love is a part of your life.


Love is......only found in three words. "I Need You"
Posted Image
Love is.......the little perfect space between your husbands arm and chest, where it's safe to tuck your face in and make the world go away.
Posted Image
Love is laughing together til your sides hurt.... and when you look at one another you start it all over again!!!
Posted Image
Love is........not reading directions for anything, and your husband doesn't bust your chops about it......even if the house is all smoked up, (cough, cough), and stuff is oozing out of the sides of the waffle-maker.:roll:
Posted Image
Love is.......when you both kiss and you don't care who's looking.:mrgreen:
Posted Image

Happy Upcoming Anniversary!
Danielle
