I was looking for a picture of my Love and this one showed up. This is Bill with our mutual Uncle Norman. Before Bill and I got married we had an Aunt and Uncle we shared. Norman is Bills moms brother and his wife, Verna is my dads sister. This picture was perfect in my feelings of my love for Bill. He has so much love for EVERYONE and that is so attractive to me. He's not a real romantic guy, not sentimental and sometimes forgetful with special dates, but he is a constant in this quality of LOVE. Everyone is important to him and you wont hear him say a mean word about anyone, a true word, maybe, but not mean. In our dating days I remember going to the rest home his Grandma Randall was living in. The moment we walked in he was taking care of her. First he asked her if she needed help with her hair and he brushed her hair for a long time. She said "Dont be afraid, a little harder". I think she liked a good scalp massage, he must have got that from her. Then he helped her with her make-up, but he had me when he flossed her teeth. I know, sounds gross, but he was very thoughtful and humble. I also remember when I went to the singles ward with him for the first time and there was a family (the only family there) and they had some little children. We had just sat down and one of the little girls came to him and he picked her right up and held her the whole meeting (it could have been a set up, but it worked). At first when we were dating and would go to a drive-through, I noticed he REALLY talked to people, asked them how they where, if they liked their job, did they have any extra fries hanging around. I thought he was a good flirt, but the more I went places with him, I realized it does the same thing with old men, young boys, moms and really anyone. When we got married my family imediately bonded with him and it was almost like I was the in-law. He's known to honk at anyone and everyone. The kids use to let it annoy them, now they honk and wave at anyone too. He's still the same way, people say to him "you must be running for mayor" (which is a whole other story), but he does want to talk to everyone and let them know he loves them. I feel the same way about people, but he has a special way of making other know he means it. I love how nothing is impossible and he always looks for the good in things. He is the most possitive person I know anywhere, and its helped me, through the years learn to look at life through different eyes. Ive said it before, when Im upset or down, I can now fake myself out of it by being possitive. I love learning from him and I know I really got lucky when Bill Guttery asked me to spend our eternities together.
Valentines day he decorated for me and the girls so when we woke we had some V-tines cheer, then he took care of a car issue for me during the day and took me to dinner and to buy ANOTHER camera. Some women collect shoes or jewlery, I collect broken cameras. While we were gone McKennas good friend Rehgan came over for the night and let me try my new camera out on them. They have been friends for about 5 years and look forward to the next 7 years of school together!
Kayla had a fun night of delivering her "singing telegrams". Every year she puts together packages of 1 song of their choice, 1 rose plant, 1 box of chocolate and a few balloons. Its a great deal for those that are staying in for the night and very personalized. She had a great time, but no crying from couples like last year. When she got home Zach had come over for a bowl of cereal and to play with Brodey.
