A Rare Meme, Day Three

So, each day, you are supposed to answer one of these:

Day One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.
Day Two: Nine things about yourself.
Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.
Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.
Day Five: Six things you wish you’d never done.
Day Six: Five people who mean a lot (in no order whatsoever)
Day Seven: Four turn-offs.
Day Eight: Three turn-ons.
Day Nine: Two images that describe your life right now, and why.
Day Ten: One confession.

Feel free to do your own!


Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.  (These are written to the one who won my heart.)

1.  You wrote to me, about me, for me, and with me.  Writing is such an intrinsic part of my nature and sharing that passion with me is a sure way to tug at my heart.  It helps that you do it so very well, my darling.

2.  Your gorgeous laugh.  The capacity to feel and express joy is essential to me and the workings of my heart.  Your laugh never fails to inspire joy in me and is one of the best and most beautiful indications of your joy.

3.  You hold my hand or put your hand on my back or arm when we're in public.  It may be anti-feminist of me, but I love the way it makes me feel: connected to you, chosen by you, regarded, special, and protected.

4.  You tell me that you need me.  You ask for my help and for my opinions.  My deepest sense of personal accomplishment comes from being useful to others, from helping to make others' lives easier.  Making your life easier makes my life wonderful.

5.  You cook for me.  Not only are you a fabulous cook, but when I had special dietary restrictions, you adapted favorite recipes to those restrictions and pre-tested them to make certain they were acceptable for me to eat.  Again, this may be anti-feminist of me, but you are so beautiful when you are cooking.  It totally has nothing to do with the cooking but rather with your complete focus on your task and your confidence and the way you move when you are so focused.

6.  You support me spiritually.  You embraced my conversion to Judaism wholeheartedly, even accompanying me to services, researching linguistic rules, synagogues near you, and customs and songs for the various holidays.  You cooked me my first Shabbat dinner and you ask questions when something is confusing, which helps me to think more about my faith and makes me a better Jew. 

7.  You worry about me and take care of me when I'm sick.  I know that may seem like it's all the time sometimes, but you are so good at taking care of me when I'm not feeling well.  I never feel judged or as if I'm a burden to you.  Never.  Just those two things alone help me to feel better much faster, I think.

8.  You believe in me.  You believe in my dreams and in my abilities and you encourage me to pursue them.  You are my biggest cheerleader and my biggest defender.  You don't let me sell myself short and you never give up on me when I do fall short.  You help me to be a better person by focusing on the positive and encouraging it.
