You have my whole heart for my whole life!
Happy Anniversary, my honey. I love you with my whole heart. Thank you for all of these 32 wonderful years of deep love and friendship and fun and laughter. Thank you for your loyalty and
keeping every vow. Thank you for sending me off to school by throwing me a kiss and a "Praise the Lord!" Thank you for listening and wiping away my tears. Thank you for loving me enough to tell me the truth and for holding my hand as I changed.
Thank you for your kindness... for every day making me feel loved and beautiful. Thank you for your unselfishness, like last Sunday spending four hours after church cleaning the desks in my classroom. Who does that kind of thing and thanks me for how fun it is to do everything with me, even cleaning? You are my sunshine, the love of my life and you reminded me when I had a broken heart, years and years ago, and thought I would never marry again, that true love was possible, especially if God was in the center of our lives.
Thank you for sticking it out through every conflict we had, for being honest, for listening and compromising and for teaching me that it's truly okay to disagree. We would be stronger with each conflict we resolved. You were so right, dear Bert...we are!
Thank you for your listening ear and for helping me process my life lessons. Thank you for being a person of integrity who says what he means and means what he says. Thank you for your fierce loyalty to me and our family. Thank you for being so trustworthy and only having eyes for me. Thank you for helping my broken heart heal. Thank you for loving the girls and being a great Papa to them. Thank you for being a cheerleader for our grandchildren. It is so much fun to grandparent with you.
Thank you for going to church with me and putting your arm around me during the sermon. It brings tears to my eyes each time you do that. Thank you for always encouraging me to be all that God meant me to be. Thank you for reminding me how much I am loved by my Heavenly Father. I am so blessed and honored, my sweetie, to share my life with you!!
I am so very grateful every day that I get to spend that day with you, Bops, even more grateful after I almost lost you in October. What I know for sure, even more than before, is that I cherish you and our time together, no matter how long it is.
I'll love you forever, my darling! Happy Anniversary!!
