    • 300-Word Justification
    • Husband Wife Friends

      My favorite person is my husband. He is warm, kind and he loves me even when I don't love myself. When I am painfully aware of my weaknesses and insecurities, he lets me know that that causes him to love me more. He shares things with me, like watching old movies on a Sunday afternoon. He has to continue to exist because I would not know what do with a Sunday afternoon if we couldn't lie on the couch, underneath thick blankets, cuddle and watch our favorite old movies. My husband is a wonderful waltzer; this dance was truly made for hopeless romantics. Sometimes when we come home from work, and we both are too tired to lift our heads off the pillow, he will put on our favorite dance song, take me in his arms and we begin dancing around the room. It is as though our dancing can take away all the troubles that surround us. My husband is my rock, my confidant, and my biggest fan. Over time his desires have become my desires, his dreams, my dreams. It is as though with the passage of time our souls have blended. We want the same things, we want them at the same time, and we want them together. Somtimes when lying on the bed, or couch or just dancing one of those old waltzes, I press my chest to his, and I can feel his heart beating as well as my heart. It seems like our hearts beat to the same rhythm. My husband is courageous, he has taught me the true meaning of being brave and stoic. Sometimes when he is in pain due to an old back injury, he doesn't complain; he continues to go to work, dance with me, do household chores and won't mention it until I ask him what is bothering him. It is then that I fill the bathtub with water, and the epsom salts so that he can soak his back for hours until it feels better. He must continue to exist because he has been a great father to my daughters, when their biological father walked out on them. He has been a guide for them without being harsh or critical. He has led by example with firm, yet understanding love. This is why he must continue to exist.
