You are able to remember the big picture when I get caught up on little things. You are so funny and make me laugh! You are also so laid-back. You snuggle me. You play with my hair and like me to play with yours. You're my best friend, and we still love hanging out. That you kill the giant spiders and bugs for me. You love Nala so much, and I can't wait to see how much you'll love our kids. You remind me to turn to Jesus instead of you sometimes. You really love your family. You aren't perfect, and you know it. You're real! You help me to be real. I love your eyes. Your kisses. Your hugs. I love how you get excited about things I think are silly. You do the dishes. You drive an old hoopty car and never complain.
