12 Reasons I Love You

My husband and I are celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary today, and we were surprised by some wonderful gifts from our children. Our son gave us 100 minutes of back massages or hair brushing, PLUS 10 "free" errands, and my daughter gave us candy and this excellent card: "12 Reasons Why I Love You":

1. You love me.
2. You care about my education.
3. You care for me.
4. You want me to have a fun life.
5. You believe in me.
6. You trust me.
7. You trust me. (Must have been an important one!)
8. You want to do what's best for me.
9. You encourage me to do even better.
10. You let me grow.
11. You respect me.
12. You respect me for if I did my best, not for right or wrong.

I couldn't possibly write anything that would define this blog any better than this list. What memorable anniversary gifts have you received from your children?

I'll see you on Pass the Torch Tuesday! I hope you'll join us!
