I Met This Man...
I knew that this man was special the minute we met and I knew I loved him from almost the first. The love I have for this man -- and the love he showers on me -- instantly healed every wound and harm ever done to my heart. Now when I search my heart I can not find an instant that I did not love him. I believe I loved him before we even met and I know for certain there will never be a moment that I don't love him completely and without reservation. As far as my heart can feel forward and back, I love this man.
He raised our children with a firm but gentle discipline which was far outweighed by the love, affection and encouragement he showered on them. To this day, when he hears a son's or daughter's voice he lights up like a Christmas tree and there is a spring in his step that was not there minutes before. He is still quick to praise and offer encouragement and guidance even though they have established their career paths. As a grandfather, there is none better... the laughter and squeals of grandbabies brings out his own laughter and playfulness.
I never hesitate to tell those who wish to know that the best part of my day is waking next to this man and it is only equaled by the last "I love you" shared with him at night. I truly was incomplete until I met this man.
Birthdays are the days we get to tell those whom we love that we are happy they are in our world. So, DH, this is to let you know how happy I am that you are in my world.
WISHING YOU MANY, MANY HAPPY RETURNS!!
