I miss...

•     when you slurp your soup or milk from your cereal bowl
•     phone messages saying:  "I don't think I told you how pretty you look today"
•     sunflowers
•     tripping over 25 pound dumbells
•     hearing:  "you couldn't BUY a meal this good!"
• you yelling "XBOX!  PLAY!"
•  repeating my instructions three times
•     you doing all the hard things I can't meeting new people
•  your crazy ideas like putting bright orange pumpkins in the Maw's flower garden
•     That ssscccrrrrpppiiinnnggg sound of knife sharpening
•     the smell of oil paint and linseed oil
•     the smell of too much Axe spray
•  the knife channel
•     watching you shave
•     you bragging about me
•     washing and folding your laundry
•     your smell after you've worked in the yard all day 
•     the way you talk to our friends at Cove Point
•     having you play with my hair
•     the way you love Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers
•     the glow you have when you talk about your grandchildren
•     Chicago Bears "stuff" everywhere
•     watching you with the dogs
•     the occasional "f-bomb" when someone makes you really upset
•     your remorse over said "f-bomb"
•     your swear jar
•     holding hands at the movies
•     watching your interactions with Melissa and Erika's friends...and theirs with you.
(how they love you!)
•   tickling your hand and arm at church
•     listening to you sing U2 songs when you think no one can hear you
•     the notes you leave me in surprise places
•     the annual poem you write to me at the start of every new school year 
• finding your socks everywhere
•     hearing you tell me "I love you" at least five times each day
•     saying "I love you"
•     your immovable, complete, testimony of the savior
•     your incredible smile
•     your laugh!  (oh, that laugh)
•     your priesthood blessings
•     your strength
•     your faith
•     you

Oh my gosh Tami!!! I said YES to almost all of these!!! Our husband's are so much alike. I bet when we all get to heaven we'll find out they were brothers separated at earth.

Come to my house. We can fulfill a lot of those things on your list.

Love you Tami!!!
