A TRIBUTE TO THE MAN I LOVE

At the risk of embarrassing my Dave, I have decided today to pay a special tribute to him. It's not a special occasion, no birthdays, or anniversaries, just a day that I wanted to let you all know how I really feel about the man you all know as "FLHX DAVE".

Dave is so many things to me. He is my soul mate, the man of my dreams, and my best friend. He is the one person in this world who knows everything there is to know about me, and yet he still loves and accepts me. He has taught me the meaning of unconditional love. I don't know if I can say that I'm a better person since I met him, but he makes me want to be a better woman. He has taught me so many things about myself. Sometimes I think he is way better to me than I am to him, and I wonder how I ended up as fortunate as I am.

He is a wonderful father, not just to his children, but to my son. I know he gets down because he doesn't see his kids as much as he'd like, but he does his best to be in contact with them as much as possible. They may be 500 miles apart, but he is more connected with them than a lot of parents who live in the same house as their children. I respect the fact that he really tries and doesn't just give up.

When we first started hanging out I think people thought that we were an unlikely couple, and that we were probably just a fling. But anyone who wants to see two people who truly love and respect each other can just take a look over here.

Our relationship is not perfect, as nothing is. Dave does some really annoying things and since he knows me so well, he can definitely push my buttons. And believe me, I know how to push his. But the fact is that I love this man for all that he is. I know who he is, and I don't expect him to change. We bicker quite a bit, mostly in fun. We are both head strong and think we're right most of the time, but when we realize that we'd rather be happy we can usually let it go. I have gone through, and continue to go through, things in my life that can make it difficult to be around me sometimes, but he does what he can to understand, and when he can't he just gives me time and space to work things out.

I could go on for days about how much I love Dave, but I think I've gotten my point across. I put together a slide show, and Dave really hates it when I post pictures of him, but hopefully my kind words will soften him and he won't be too mad at me. :)

I love you very much Dave, I cherish the memories we have made so far, and I look forward to a lifetime of making more!

Willy D said...

First of all, I don't think Dave would care about being em-bare-assed;)
A fling? No. I can tell that you two do "truly love and respect each other".
And I must say that Carolyn and I really enjoy the rides and time spent with you and Dave.
Dave speaks his mind straight up, without all the BS. The way it should be. It is what it is. Have a nice day.

Big Daddy said...

Whew!
I was scared to read this.
Then I realized it was about.
Dave.
;]

I'm glad you two can find happiness with each other.
If half the world could experience what I and Ann have.
We'd all be firing up the scoots and riding blissfully.

They say there is someone for everyone. You just have to look. You two sound like any other successful couple, ups and downs and all arounds are a normal part of life. When love is the foundation, much can be accomplished.

I hope Dave doesn't give you a spanking for being a bad girl and posting his mug!

Since the news of the world seems to be more negative every day, it's nice to come on the blogs and read something nice.

You two are very lucky, and I'm happy for you. Cherish it.

I must admit, as another butt ugly fair skinned dude with a reddish moustache, I appreciate you taking one of us in and feeding him!

This is very good. The two of you are very lucky. My wife and I 26yrs the 19th, Married her on her b-day. I just listened to Winona Judd "I want to know what love is" I guess you know. You and Dave keep it up. Love is hard at times as life is. Forgiving is easy too. It is those good times that we all look forward to. The making up is the best part. Even if you had to be spanked for those pictures.
