Everything I ever wanted....

Everything I need....

We had our first dance to the Brad Paisley song "Everything To Me" and for some reason it was what stuck out in my mind as I sat down to write today.

I think it's interesting how some days I can feel like everything My Man does is "Wrong" and "stupid" and whatever, and then when the fog clears in my brain I realize that he really IS everything I ever wanted. All I have wanted my entire life was to be a wife and mother. Granted, the mother part was always on top, but I would make list after list of what I wanted in a man.

Some of the ones that showed up on every list...

Taller than me - check :)

Likes to read - double check :)

Likes to snuggle - oh yes, much to my chagrin most of the time THESE days :)

Likes to sing - YES

Expressive in worship - YES

Loves Jesus - YES YES YES! :)

Want kids - it seems every month that passes this is more and more true for him. Maybe God has us waiting so that he could catch up with my desire ;-)

Somethings that I wanted, but never thought I'd get were -

Will give me red haired children - there is a VERY VERY Good chance we will produce red-haired children (and I don't mean the step child kind ;-))

Will spank me. *smile* This is a desire I've had as long as I had unrestricted access to internet. As long as I knew there were people like that out there I wanted it. And it's funny because I didn't think I'd find someone who loved Jesus, was not an abuser or legalist, and would spank me. And God sent me the perfect man for me. He is gentle and tender and loving and giving and understanding...but he is firm when I need it. And I LOVE that. I LOVE that he gives me what I want 95% of the time... it doesn't make him less of a man or an "abdicator of the  husbandly role" it just means he loves me. And I love that. ;-)

She's a yellow pair of running shoes
A holey pair of jeans
She looks great in cheap sunglasses
She looks great in anything
She's I want a piece of chocolate
Take me to a movie
She's I can't find a thing to wear
Now and then she's moody

She's a Saturn with a sunroof
With her brown hair a-blowin
She's a soft place to land
And a good feeling knowing
She's a warm conversation
That I wouldn't miss for nothing
She's a fighter when she's mad
And she's a lover when she's loving 

And she's everything I ever wanted
And everything I need
I talk about her, I go on and on and on
because she's everything to me

She's a Saturday out on the town
And a church girl on Sunday
She's a cross around her neck
And a cuss word 'cause its Monday
She's a bubble bath and candles
Baby come and kiss me
She's a one glass of wine
And she's feeling kinda tipsy

She's the giver I wish I could be
And the stealer of the covers
She's a picture in my wallet
Of my unborn children's mother
She's the hand that I'm holding
When I'm on my knees and praying
She's the answer to my prayer
And she's the song that I'm playing

She's the voice I love to hear
Someday when I'm ninety
She's that wooden rocking chair
I want rocking right beside me
Everyday that passes 
I only love her more
Yeah, she's the one 
That I'd lay down my own life for

And she's everything I ever wanted
And everything I need
She's everything to me
Yeah she's everything to me

Everything I ever wanted
And everything I need
She's everything to me
Yeah shes everything to me
everything to me
