I Met This Man...

Many years ago, 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.

The very presence of this man makes the world a better place. His service to his country for more than two decades is a source of pride not just to himself, but to his entire family. He makes those around him -- especially me -- better people. His solid support and encouragement have helped me and others achieve things never imagined. I have tried to do the same for him and I hope I have succeeded more times than I have failed. He is far more than any woman could ask of a husband. He truly is my rock... my partner... my friend. My best friend.

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.

He was an attentive son who loved his parents without reserve. He tended to them in their dotage and buried them with the respect and tenderness of a man confident in the love they shared.

He is a much respected and loved brother. Happy in the memories of the three brothers' youth together and resolute in their mutual affection as they age.

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.


All my love -- always.
