Ten Things I Love About My Wife

Okay guys, here’s my list. What’s yours?


1.)  On the phone, she calls even relative strangers “Honey.”

2.)  The girl knows how to DANCE. I’m talkin’ get out of the way because the Soul Train is comin’ on through.

3.)  My wife is impossible not to like. She lights up a room with warmth and grace.

4.)  Let’s just say when she walks down the street, heads turn.

5.)  She’s obsessed with helping children—whether at our son’s school or at Perkins School for the Blind.

6.)  She refuses to let me stay in my man cave. I have literally learned how to socialize like a civilized human being by following her lead.

7.)  Loyalty is a religion with her. People trust her with their secrets because they know she will protect them with her life.

8.)  She is tough. Did I say Italian and lawyer? On a matter of principal she will not back down. Ever.

9.)  Travel is in her blood. Left to my own devices I might not leave a one square block region of Massachusetts. But every time we take a trip I have a blast.

10.)  Holding her at night is a sacred ritual that makes my heart slow and body relax with the knowledge that I am home.

    Great Tom, now I gotta sit down and write a list to impress my wife. On the other hand, I’m kind of surprised you left out that she gets you good cigars. I thought that would be up there with you.

    Seriously now, I’m truly happy that you have been so fortunate (and that so has she!). Hope to meet her some day. And I will indeed enjoy writing my own list.

  15. #6: “I have literally learned how to socialize like a civilized human…”
