For the month of February, IOL is inviting our readers to tell us who they love and why to stand a chance of winning amazing prizes in our #MyHeart competition.
Our next winner is John Buckley, who submitted the following entry.
I love my wife, Liewe Hexie.
An interesting woman to say the least. She is Afrikaner, and I am a dignified Irishman, born in Zambia and naturalized in South Africa. What I did to the Gods to be endowed with this yellow, beady-eyed cook, cleaner, carer and companion, is beyond comprehension.
It would appear she is tolerant of my dashing good looks, youthful attributes, financial prowess and incredible intellect. Roughly translated, this means she sees through absolutely everything. Nothing escapes her and yet we remain together. What she sees in an ageing 50-year-old oke in a dead end job, short, grey-haired, near midget, is unfathomable .... but I remain most grateful.
