I REALLY Like This Guy!

A few General Conferences ago, one of the General Authorities was talking about marriage. He mentioned that the most destructive trait in any relationship is wasn't in General Conference.

Brian uses the following quote by President Gordon B. Hinckley in the marriage ceremonies he performs:

"Selfishness is the great destroyer of happy family life. I have this one suggestion to offer. If you will make your first concern the comfort, the well-being, and the happiness of your companion, sublimating any personal concern to that loftier goal, you will be happy, and your marriage will go on through eternity." (The Teachings of Gordon B. Hinckley, p 329)

Brian is one of the most selfless people I know.

This week was CSAP’s. Since the Junior and Seniors didn’t have school on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, we didn’t have seminary.

I am no different from the teenagers, I cherish every single day that I can sleep in. Since the freshmen and sophomores had to take CSAP’s, Parker still needed to be taken to school, but not until 7:40. Getting up at 7 am is still sleeping nearly 3 hours more than I normally do! My idea of sleeping in is getting up at 7 or 7:30.

But every night, Brian would say, “Hey, don’t worry about getting up tomorrow. I will take Parker.” How sweet is that? We were both going to bed at the same time. He needs his sleep too! He works harder than I do! He wasn’t just saying that because he had an early morning meeting or was heading out to work out. He wanted me to enjoy as much sleep as possible. When I rolled out of bed at 7:15, he chided, “What are you doing up? You are supposed to be sleeping!”

He is SO UNSELFISH! This is just one of the reasons I love him!
