There are times I am totally beyond amazed at the love Alpha Hubby has for me.  Sometimes it defies description although I try.  Is he a saint?  Nah, he is most definitely corporally present.  Thank goodness.

It isn’t that we don’t have some days where we become tired and a bit tiffed or even – *horrors* – have a raised voice or two.  I will say that he has probably only raised his voice in frustration um… let me see.  Once in 18 years.  Wow.  He far surpasses me in this area.

He’s also never thrown anything.  Me?  Errrr, do I have to say?  I can say this in all honesty:  I only lost ONE favorite coffee mug. That has to count for something, right?

Until you factor in boiled eggs, water, a bread roll or two. And *ahem* maybe (but I ain’t talking) other foodstuff. That’s about it, tho.  Unless he remembers something I’m forgetting which, because he is so amazing, he will not remind me of.  Right, babe?  Right??  Again he surpasses me.

While I am the writer, he used to write very wonderful stories.  He wrote just for me.  He expressed his love in ways that took my breath away and made me very suspicious at the same time.  Suspicious as in, “What’s wrong with this guy?  When is the other shoe going to drop?  Where’s the axe?”

Yeah, yeah, I had issues.  I didn’t trust anyone who could love me.  I’m better now.  But he is very good at expressing himself and his love to me in writing and mushy cards.  Better than me AGAIN.  Does this ever stop?

I know!  He can’t sing.  Oh, he will croon to me and I love it, very much. I sing love songs to him.  He says he loves listening to my voice.  The latest I am going to learn to sing is coming up below (link to you tube or video below).

But even though I can sing his socks off (and various and other sundry articles of clothing), he tends to top me with things like what he did this Saturday evening. (Click on right arrow to hear the song; if you have trouble, view on You Tube HERE (link to You Tube opens in separate window)

We were watching the movie “Joyful Noise” with Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah.  There is a song in the movie Dolly Parton sings (partially along with Kris Kristofferson and Jeremy Jordan).  It’s one of those huge-lump-in-the-throat songs.

During the romantic moonlit night dance scene between Dolly Parton and Kris Kristofferson, Alpha Hubby suddenly said, “That’s you.”

I asked, “What is?”

“That song,” he said, “it’s you; how I feel about you.  From here to the moon and back.”

Drat.  Another area he’s better in than I am.  Oh, who am I kidding?  It melted my socks off (and various and other sundry articles of clothing).  It came spontaneously from out his heart straight to mine.  ZING!

He might be a saint after all.


I could hold out my arms, say “I love you this much”
I could tell you how long I will long for your touch
How much and how far would I go to prove
The depth and the breadth of my love for you?

From here to the moon and back
Who else in this world will love you like that?
Love everlasting, I promise you that
From here to the moon and back
From here to the moon and back

I want you to know you can always depend
On promises made and love without end
No need to wonder how faithful I’ll be
Now and on into eternity

From here to the moon and back
Who else in this world will love you like that?
Forever and always, I’ll be where you’re at
From here to the moon and back
From here to the moon and back

I would blow you a kiss from the star where I sat
I would call out your name to echo through the vast
Thank heaven for you and to God tip my hat
From here to the moon and back

And I’ll spend forever just proving that fact
From here to the moon and back
