My Wonderful Husband Jon

For those of you who know Jon you know what a great loving guy Jon is. He is the greatest thing ever and I don't know what I would do without him in my life. We were best friends for a year or so before we actualy dated. Jon admits to having a huge crush on me but never had the guts to ask me out because he didn't want to jeopardize our friendship. Everyone kept telling me Jon was the guy for me. Finally one day while at school I told one of my best friends Keeley that maybe I should go out with Jon and see what happens. Not even an hour later I had Jon with flowers asking me out on our first date. The crazy thing about the first date was that it wasn't awkward and it was the best date ever. I knew he was the guy for me. We dated from September to January and then he proposed to me on Friday the 13th (yeah I know kinda scary). He took me to this park in Draper, Utah where we would go in the past and he lead me up the sidewalk into the gazebo where there sat rose petals and this little scrapbook journal he had put together with the ladies at the scrapbook store. I opened and read all about our life together so far and at the end was the question "Will you marry me?" and then the gorgeous ring was tied in the back. What a wonderful life we have had so far. I love Jon so much and everyday I do everything for him and our loving marriage we share. He has things about him that I cherish. Here are five things I love about Jon... First I love his true love for the Lord. I look up to him in everyway for the knowledge he has in the gospel. I love that we were married in the temple for eternity and how wonderful it is to have a strong priesthood holder in our home. Second, I love his care and concern for others. Jon would do anything for anyone. He is always looking for acts of service. He will lend a helping hand to neighbors who are moving, or to a sick family member. Third, I love his sense of humor and goofiness. Jon loves to have fun and be a weirdo but I love that about him. I love the days when we lay on our floor laughing so hard we can't stop. The fourth thing I love about Jon is his love for children. He loves kids. He is so great with my niece Skylen and nephew Zander. He offers to babysit them almost daily. He loves to be with kids and he will make the greatest father ever! And finally the last thing I love about Jon is his love for me. Jon has uncondiitonal love for me and he knows I am not perfect. I have messed up at times and he still loves me and would do anything for me. He is simply wonderful. I can't even express him in words enough. Jon is an incredible husband, brother, friend, and son. Love ya babe!

That was the sweetest post ever. I don't know Jon very well, but I was completely shocked when (my) John told me that (your) Jon had called and offered to babysit Ruby so that we could go to the temple. Unfortunately, we were getting ready to go out of town, but just the fact that he thought of that on his own, and offered, meant so much to us. You really did marry a gem.

Loved the post! You need to print it up and carry it around with you, so on those short-tempered days when everything is driving you crazy you can re-read it and remember all of those wonderful things!
