The way...

The way your pajama bottoms don’t match the tops
The way you exercise to ensure ‘proper fitting pants’
The way our dogs wait for you to walk
The way our kids tease you just to hear you laugh
The way you keep on the move so you don’t fall asleep
The way you do things for all of us, unasked 
The way you take time to listen to a friend
The way you persevere when life sometimes makes you weary
It’s all this and more that keep me …… well, it’s just your way

    This would be one terrific entry for the "I Love You Because..." contest, Shawn. You have a deep love for your partner and it comes through in everything she does, everything she is. We should all be blessed to have a love so strong. Happy Valentine's Day to you! Best Wishes, Carolyn
