#1: hubby

Once upon a time, a young girl had the most awesomest college class schedule. Then she realized she still needed one more English class to graduate. Not wanting to mess up her amazing schedule, she picked a once a week night class.

Two days before the class began, a young man was reviewing his schedule. To his dismay, the jet propulsion class had changed time, and he now needed one English class to graduate. He looked at the options, and picked the only qualified class with an opening - which just happened to be a once a week night class.

The first night of class arrived. They happened to sit next to each other. Both were struck with the other's thoughtful comments and insights.

He asked her out.

She said yes.

They fell love and got married.

But that was not the end of the story.

That was the beginning.

Together they started off on a grand adventure called "life". They became parents. They grew and changed.

And stayed together.

When he would ask why she loved him, she'd reply "because you're worth it." And he believed her.

When she was a crazy person who over scheduled herself and thought absolutely everything was important and stressed over the stupidest little things, he held her and helped her realize what was really important. And she calmed down.

And today, on her 30th birthday, she remembers her favorite thing of all. Her Hubby. And all the goodness he brings. His strengths and weaknesses - which become strengths - and loves and silliness. All those things she fell in love with, and those that she had to learn to love.

And she finds herself very blessed indeed.
