A One of a Kind Woman

She always cries when she laughs And every time she takes a bath She soaks until her fingers wrinkle up She’d give you the food off her plate Everywhere she goes she is late And she drinks fine wine from a paper cup She likes to dance in the rain Adds orange juice to her Champaign And always stops to make faces at the kids She skinny dips in the moonlight Knows how to make your wrongs alright And remembers everything she ever did She listens when you speak Lends a hand to those too weak And always has a word of kindness to share She drives a bit too fast Waves at the people she goes past And the wind loves to tangle up her hair She gives until it hurts She looks best in her t-shirts She wins when she plays poker with the boys And, she wears my wedding ring I am lucky to be one other thing She counts as those things that she enjoys

Dear Joe, Your wife must be a wonderful person! She has so many great qualities: generosity, humility (wine in a paper cup), compassion and the ability not to take herself too seriously. Awesome lady you have, Joe! (It also seemed like you were describing my late Aunt Eva.) So nice to hear from you, my friend. Love, Carolyn
