Why I love my wife

So Aubrey and I were lounging around this morning, me drinking chai, she drinking orange juice. We were laughing and such and she brought forth a story I had heard her tell before, but had's definitely worth a retelling here.

Once when Aubrey was like 5, her parents wanted to take her to the circus. So they told her, "Aubrey, we're going to take you to the Greatest Show on Earth!"

Her eyes got wide. And her mouth dropped open.

"Do you know what the greatest show on earth is?" they asked her.

"Of course," she said. "It's when Jesus got put on the cross for our sins."

"Oh," said her mother thoughtfully. "Then do you know what the second greatest show on earth is?"

I think this story shows, while slightly cheesy, how well her parents had impressed upon her the story and love of God. It just oozed out of her.

And that's one of the reasons I love her.
