Combined Effort by the Two of Us

Updated on January 31, 2018

Making Every Day Count

I could not be more proud

Of my wife and all her support

Going to work without complaining

Giving her best effort

Doing a thankless job sometimes

I want her to know

How much I appreciate and admire her

Being honest and sincere

Trustworthy and confident

Healthy in both mind and body

Loving unconditionally

Each time trying her best

So that we can keep working toward the future

Steadily toward our goals

Caring for each other

With only love and happiness

As we plan the days ahead

I take great pride

In having you by my side

As I also work striving for the same result

Providing for the necessities

Skipping some of the luxuries

So that we may live comfortably in the most trying times

Realizing a dream

Which is not yet achieved

As we strive for the future

Supporting one another beyond all else

Making today one of many

That stands out in my mind

That I am excited and thrilled

To go to bed beside the woman

Who revs up my engine

Then gives me all energy and power

To seek dream after dream

Where one day

We finally will see it all come together

Like spaghetti and meatballs

Covered in extra parmesan cheese

I will bring the garlic bread

      DREAM ON 

      8 months ago

      Kari Poulsen It wasn't always this way. I was in a long term relationship for many years that I gave, gave and gave and all she did is take and take. I thought no matter what I did I could make it work. She moved out on me. Then I met my future wife at my work she picked up a second job to make ends meet. Her significant other took advantage of my wife's kindness and good nature. You could say we found and needed each other. The rest is history. I think when the time is right Mr. Right will come into your life. Thank you for reading and sharing.

      Louise Powles I try to bring our every day life into focus. Experiencing the good and having fun doing what we do best. Working, sleeping, eating, talking and spending time together. No matter how small it all matters. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Have a beautiful day.
