"This is my life, its not a lot, but its my life!"

Another CJ blog for your reading pleasure...

I would like to take some time and convey the relationship with my beautiful wife, Rebecca. Now we all know her O' so delicate charm when sharing personal views on ANY subject. This personality trait has provided us with countless fun, awkward, and even volatile situations. For those of you who have NO idea what I'm talking about, picture this scenario: We have some friends over and we happen to be talking about how to discipline our children. Obviously we all want to share our experiences and no sooner do our guests tell us about a technique they use, Becky swiftly blurts out how she couldn’t agree less with this. Well O.K., this MAY be a slight exaggeration, but you get the picture, RIGHT? As if this trait isn’t dominant enough, we can’t forget Becky’s stubbornness. Don’t get me wrong though, this is more of a positive trait than destructive. Becky is also strong willed and feministic at times. To some, these personality traits may seem overpowering and difficult to MANAGE on a personal level, however, this is not the case with US. Sure it would be nice if she would do everything I told her, or if I never had to clean a dish or even do my own laundry from time to time. But for me, I need someone to keep my “EGO” (I’ve been told I have one) in check. And who would be better fit for the task other than Rebecca…? My mind draws a blank!

I’m obliged for my place in our little world known as the Jones Clan. Besides, wearing the pants of the family is so OVERRATED!!! Then again according to the photo Becky is sure trying to get those pants back ☺… I thought I
was done, but Becky just came into the room and scolded me for doing something she asked me to do. The nerve! On X-Mas eve she asked me to find a way to attach a 4X6 card with the kids names on them to their respective stockings. My idea; staple ‘em on there. Brilliant if you ask me. The one downfall was the holes left behind in the rayon liners. Maybe if I keep this up, she’ll stop asking me to do things altogether, lol. Can’t blame a man for wishing, can you???

All joking aside, I am truly grateful Heav
enly Father put someone like Rebecca in my life when I needed her the most. My love and appreciation for her continues to grow, even after 11 LONG years of marriage. I Love You Becky Jones!

By the way, the photograph was taken and edited by Benita Cloward at BRC Photography. Thanks for the memories Bita.
