An Ode to My Wife

This post also appeared on in the opinion section of the Cape Cod Times, a division of Ottaway Newspapers, Inc.

In looking back at some of my posts, I realized to the untrained eye it might look like I don’t appreciate my wife. Nothing could be farther from the truth, so here’s a little something I wrote for the greatest woman in my life…

Strong and independent, yet soft and cuddly
You are by far the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me
From bringing home the bacon to how you cook and clean
Then add “mommy” to your resume and everything in between
And I don’t make it easy, people tell you you’re a saint
Putting up with my antics would make most women faint
But deep down past the joking and all my kidding around
I treasure every part of you, a truer love could never be found
I love when your eyes change color and your impish little grin
I love the way your hair smells and the smoothness of your skin
I love that you don’t expect me to notice your new haircut
I love when you pretend to be mad when I pinch your butt
And when it comes to our new son, you truly are the best
Taking care of little Will without hardly a minute’s rest
You constantly amaze me with all you say and do
I consider it an honor that I’ll grow old with you
I don’t know why you picked me, but I’d damn sure glad you did
Because between the two of us, we made a beautiful kid
So thank you and I love you, you mean the world to me
My wife, my friend but most of all, the planet’s best mommy

Guys, let your girlfriend/wife know how much you care about them. I’m learning that a little effort and a tiny compliment can be a huge deal!
