Steve Turns 50 – 50 Reasons I Love You! {Marriage on Monday}

Last Thursday, Steve turned 50 years old. He joined the 1/2 century group.

Happy 50th Birthday Stephen Beck

I wanted to do something special for him, but couldn’t decide what that would be. Until Thursday afternoon.

I decided to write “50 Reasons I love You”.

At first I was intimidated by it.  Could I really think of 50 reasons? I “should” be able to do so.  He’s been my husband for almost 28 years. But I wasn’t sure about it.

I started making my list and all of a sudden I hit the 50 mark…and I had more reasons to list.  I guess I’ll save those for his 60th birthday.

He didn’t read the list until the next morning.  After he read the list, he came over & kissed me.  Then he told me how much he liked it, as well as saying “I guess doing the dishes ranks pretty high around her”. I listed that 3 times 🙂

But what made me feel good was he told me he appreciated all the thought that went into making the list.
