as of this week, mr. schroeder has amazed me like no other mother. we haven't seen each other much because he is out working so incredibly hard. sometimes, i don't understand how he can just pick a carpet roll up and put it on his shoulder when i can't even pick one side of it up an inch off the ground for a split second. he works so hard. but as of this week, i couldn't help but notice a lot of things i love about him.
even things he says or things he does that i catch on & think,
"wow. you're amaze-balls."
the other night, i made some dinner. it was extremely good. but sometimes, i think the better the meal tastes, the more there is to clean up. seriously, though. so it was like 9:45pm and we were both completely exhausted. i told him i'm just going to clean the dishes tomorrow because i just couldn't that night. he replied by saying, "i have a new rule. let's see if you agree with it. whoever makes dinner, the other person cleans it up." i started smiling. "NO! that's not fair for you to have to clean up all the dishes." and then he said, "well, that's not fair for you to have to make dinner all the time."
i still don't feel very good about having him clean up all of dinner that night. i actually feel really bad. . . .even though, yes, i did make dinner. i think i'll still clean up, anyways. i don't know if i could feel good about going to take a bubble bath while mr. schroeder is cleaning the kitchen. haha!
he also asked me to go on a date with him on saturday. date nights are a must in the schroeder household, however, i rarely hear, "hey. do you want to go on a date with me on saturday?" he's cute. i really really like him.
he always talks about how much he likes to see me perform. i truly don't think i'd ever really notice how much that means to me if it weren't for almost marrying a man who hated music. i would have been crushed. mr. schroeder has told me how important it is that i practice & how big of a difference he can see in me when i perform. gosh. i really do love that man!
he makes me smile. all the time. every day, for that matter.
i have always been a firm believer in knowing that there is more than one person for everyone. you can find another soul mate. you can be happy with another person. but i also know that nobody will ever know me & treat me the way mr. schroeder does. i could never love someone as much as i love mr. schroeder. & nobody could ever make me as happy as he does.
