I love you for many reasons, but it's easier because I know you love me. It's like the many reasons that I and others think your beauty is far deeper than just your beautiful physical looks.
You always wear a smile, even when you feel lousy.
Cleanliness is next to beauty. I know you don't wash the bar of soap after you shower, but you're the cleanest person I've every met.
It's not by accident that you have such beautiful skin. Your mother taught you, as you taught our daughter, not to wear makeup, because it damages the pores of the face skin. You have a routine and you take the time every evening to wash your face vigorously and apply a face lotion to protect your skin.
Today I sincerely feel that you have the most beautiful skin I've ever seen or touched. You are lucky that lip stick and face lotion are all you use and need.
Any minute of the day or night you always smell fresh. Few things are as bad as smelling sour makeup on a woman's face night or day or being exposed to other displeasing body or clothing odors any day or night of the month.
I know well that it takes extra time to achieve your goals, but it's worth it. Your body and clothes always have a fresh fragrance. Your hair is always shiny and well kept. Your teeth sparkle and your shoes are polished and in good repair.
To me it's wonderful that you're purely natural and have no put-on actions, talk, or dress. It adds to your beauty as you allow your hair to change shades with age without feeling a need for dyes and wild styles.
With out trying, you seem to always be the center of attention where ever you go. You accomplish this with out showing-off in any way to attract attention. Your shoe heels never click on the pavement or floor like horse shoes. You speak softly and find no need to be loud. Your table manners are emasculate and I and others are proud to sit next to you.
You have a knack for always setting a fine example. You attempt to be considerate of the feelings of others as you politely offer advice and assistance without being pushy.
There is no doubt with anyone that you always set the proper example for your children and others. You raised our children with necessary discipline and taught them to respect others day and night.
You are genuinely concerned about your own health and the health of your family. You tried hard to teach our children the importance of adequate rest and proper healthy food. You continue to insure that we always have well balanced meals as you spend much time preparing these meals.
From the day we met you've worked hard to be an emasculate house keeper. Our bed is always fresh and comfortable; just as you insured our children's beds were. The curtains are always clean and fresh.
You have integrity. You are the most honest person I've ever met and you certainly taught our children to also be honest. You are extremely intelligent and can easily hold a conversation with anyone on any subject with confidence.
We've enjoyed 40 years of marriage because we are always a complete 50/50 partnership...in everything. We both remember that we both had adjustments to make the first year. We were both strong individuals, but we were/are intelligent and realized that we had the potential for an unbelievable life-long partnership.
From day-one we were always a team as we shared and worked hard together to achieve our goals.
We actually "learned" to love each other more as we worked towards set-goals.
I remember well that from the beginning you made it clear what you like, dislike, expect...and what you will not tolerate. There was never one minute of misunderstanding that you would "never" tolerate abuse of "any" type or dishonesty or gambling.
You respect me and always demand respect in return. Today our children cherish these same qualities.
You are generous with your time and material wealth, yet always look for ways to save money and time. You insure that we dress nicely with reasonable stylish clothes that are in season; with out wasting money on expensive clothing just to wear the latest mode to show-off to others.
Yes, we actually learned to love each other more and more through the years as we made sure that our marriage has been a business deal and partnership with objectives and goals, which we carefully and energetically worked together on as partners to achieve.
You believe strongly in Jesus Christ and encourage me daily to do the same.
