My Future Husbands

In the grand spirit of Mormon plural marriage, I've started to pick out my future husbands in the hereafter. My first husband, always foremost in my affections, a king among handmen, is Mike, of course. 

Husband number 2: This old guy named Val. I love him. Everytime I see him, he gives me a big hug with a complete lack of self-consciousness. (I'm really just an acquaintance.) He has a huge generosity of spirit and is so happy and friendly.

Husband number 3: Jerry Sanders, mayor of San Diego. This is a bit of a shocker because he's a Republican, but I fell in love with him during this YouTube clip. . What a courageous and generous person. 

Husband number 4: William Wilburforce. So all I really know about him comes from the movie Amazing Grace, but I was extraordinarily moved (as depicted in the movie) by this man's tireless quest to abolish slavery in Britain. And by his love for animals - he started the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

What do all these men have in common? Compassion, courage in their convictions, and a huge generosity of spirit. All qualities I wish I could embody better.
