Writers Workshop.... my man.

Ok, this weeks assignment with Mama Kat
Choose a prompt... I can do this!
The Prompts:
1.) Describe your significant other's most attractive quality (on the inside)
Ahhh, liking this one... so many to choose from
2.) Tell about a time you stole something.
Hmmm, stealing.... notsomuch! Let's clarify... not that I haven't stolen, but that story would be LONG! Oh, and I'd have to pick just one? Can't do it.
3.) Choose a poem you like. Take the last line and use it as the first line of your own poem.
Poems? Unless it's vulgar, I don't think I could do it.
4.) Write about a scary encounter with one of your old professors.
Oh, gosh... the only "scary" encounter I had was when my art professor told me I was "heavy handed" with my charcoal drawing and I just wanted to heavy hand his arse through the door.
So, we begin with the love of my life. My heart and soul. My joy.
There are so many reasons that I love my husband and I know you've requested just one.
BUT just one?
Ok, let's fix this. I can fix this.
Here is the MOST ATTRACTIVE QUALITY.... It's his heart.
Within that lovely heart of his...
He is kind and gentle, sincere and caring, non judgmental and sweet... SO, SO sweet. He wakes up at 1am to take the dogs and the boy to the bathroom. He goes out on snow mornings and cleans off my car (and warms it up) so I can drive in comfort. He cooks my meat for me, just because it grosses me out and that way I don't have to deal with it. He's the best snuggler ever and he rubs my back when I can't sleep. He listens to me ramble with a kind face and a gentle laugh when I catch myself. He has driven over 60 miles to pick me up from work because I didn't feel well; this man and his heart. He buys me flowers for no special occasion... just because. He laughs at my jokes, even when I can't get them right (and most of the time can't remember them). He completes my sentences and knows exactly what I'm thinking.
He adores me and is my very best friend.
He is the closest I've met to perfect, and I can't breath quite right when I think that we are together in this experience of life; this man and his big, full, wonderful heart.
