Sticking with Him

I received a little something in the mail from Stephanie Congdon Barnes recently. A little something I ordered from her for my sweetheart--Mr Beeper. It is my valentine to him...
Because I think he is so cool. Really. I love his goofy sense of humor, and his political rabblerousing, and his guitar playing in the basement on the weekends, and how he can engage anyone in conversation and immediately learn so much about them, drawing out their views, their history, all that is of interest in them. I also love that he works for an organization we both believe in (Big Brothers, Big Sisters) and does so much good there with all his inventive and brave ideas to gain better support for them. And I love what a good, good daddy he is to our little Beeper. But mostly, I adore his kindness--after all these years, he is still one of the kindest human beings I have ever known and I am still so deeply attracted to that in him. So, I think I'll stick with him for a little longer--like forever. Happy Valentine's Day, Mr Beeper.
