Happy Anniversary Kevin Kemp!
This week each of the cool kids randomly mentioned that they are so proud of you. I concur! You are a wonderful husband and father, provider, and priest for our home. You are an excellent example of leadership with an unmatched capability to connect with people. I’ve had the distinct pleasure of watching you grow since 2001 and I’m so grateful you chose me. Usually, I’d make a post about what I like but for year 12, I’m sharing what I DO NOT LIKE about you.
- I DO NOT LIKE that you constantly push me beyond my comfort zone. In doing so you’ve helped me conquer fears, cultivate long-lasting relationships, and commit to excellence in every area. I’ve even watched you push the cool kids in school and sports.
- I DO NOT LIKE that you set the bar so high, it seems unreachable. In doing so you made sure I exceeded my own expectations when marriage and motherhood became my ministry. You’ve also taught your children the correct way to set, work towards, and subsequently achieve goals.
- I DO NOT LIKE that you require follow-through on everything. In doing so you’ve ensured the family has a phenomenal work ethic and we complete our tasks.
- I DO NOT LIKE that some days you are very tired. This shows that you are working hard to make sure we have everything we need. In 12 years you’ve never been without income.
- I DO NOT LIKE that you always drop your dirty clothes outside of the hamper. SERIOUSLY, I can’t stand it and when I see your dirty clothes on the floor I’m briefly annoyed. Then, I immediately pray “God, thank you for my husband and his dirty clothes. Amen” I thank God because my husband is alive, in good health, and he has spoiled me rotten.
Without you, I wouldn’t be the woman I am today because being loved by you has made me better. I may have a few things I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT LIKE about you but they pale in comparison to what I TRULY LOVE about you. Husband, you are tha’ man and then some! Thank you for loving me.
If you read this post in its entirety, I implore you to take a few minutes and share some love today. People know that I am quick to send a text, mail a letter, or call and say “I love/appreciate you.” Let your spouse, parents, family, and a few friends know that you love them. In the past two years, we’ve buried many great family members. Life is too short not to be grateful for the special people in your life.

Make this week memorable,
