Dear Mr. Hot Stuff

DSSH is what I call him on my blog and that stands for Dear Sweet Sexy Hubby. At home I call him Mr. Hot Stuff.

Dear Mr. Hot Stuff,
I will eternally be grateful that you woke up late that one Sunday, and so glad that instead of just staying in bed you decided to go to a later church meeting, because if you hadn't we might never have met. You sat there alone, so unassuming, just minding your own business when my cousin spotted you and pointed you out as her brother's childhood buddy. You told me you liked the way I sing. Flattery will get you anything. It is hard for me to pinpoint the exact moment when I first realized that you would always be a part of my life. Maybe it was with that first bag of Snyder's Pretzels you gave me. Or it could have been the time that we were wrestling and a car stopped to see if you were having a heart attack. There was also the time you tickled my unshaved legs and didn't even flinch. Personally I think it was the first time that I hugged you. I'm not much of a hugger and I especially don't like hugging "boys". You made me feel safe. You never tried to push me, you never tried to rush me, you just waited and were good to me. I felt like I could love you without having to worry about what you expected from me, and that is so rare to find. You were my best friend. I don't think my heart has ever hurt as much as it did the day I thought I had lost you. You were getting tired of waiting and had started to distance yourself from me, but then you opened the door and you smiled and it was at that moment that I realized that you were so much more than just a friend to me. You are everything to me. We've been through so much together and still we are best friends. I feel sexy and beautiful every time you hold me. I feel absolutely safe anytime you are with me. It is because of you that I am able to do everything I do. You've worked so hard, given up so much, and endured everything life has tossed at you and you've done it for me. The beautiful children that you have given me love you with every fiber of their little beings. Cookie loves to run errands with you. Pablo loves drawing with you. Monster Man loves to wrestle with you (he gets that from me). And Sweet Terror loves to tell you what to do. The highlight of their entire day is your coming home. I hope you are aware of how much you mean to us and how much you are loved in our home. You are our special Valentine!

Love Forever
Me
