To my best friend, husband, life coach, and biggest fan-
What a year we’ve had! Looking back from last birthday to this – I could never have imagined all we’d go through this year, how we’d grow, where we would end up, and how it would all work together. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Do I tell you enough that i love you?
do I thank you enough for all that you do and sacrifice for our family?
do i tell you how very much i admire you for your generosity, your "pay it forward" view on life, your ability to make tough choices and tough decisions when they are what’s best for your family?
I love seeing you be such a great daddy to our girls – even with all the drama, and crying, and whining. I love seeing you teach kealey how to ride her bike, dance with your princess cinderella karissa, and soothe your fuss budget baby kaylen. I love seeing how you have grown SO MUCH as a dad and a person and a husband and a friend over this past year.
but I don’t think I can put all that into words. cause you know me. I’ll just start crying. so i’ll just let someone else’s words say it for me.
remember this one?
Baby I’ve been searching like everybody else
Can’t say nothing different about myself
Sometimes I’m an angel
And sometimes I’m cruel
And when it comes to love
I’m just another fool
Yes, I’ll climb a mountain
I’m gonna swim the sea
There ain’t no act of God girl
Could keep you safe from me
My arms are reaching out
Out across this canyon
I’m asking you to be my true companion
So don’t you dare and try to walk away
I’ve got my heart set on our wedding day
I’ve got this vision of a girl in white
Made my decision that it’s you allright
And when I take your hand
I’ll watch my heart set sail
I’ll take my trembling fingers
And I’ll lift up your veil
Then I’ll take you home
And with wild abandon
Make love to you just like a true companion
You are my true companion
I got a true companion
When the years have done irreparable harm
I can see us walking slowly arm in arm
Just like the couple on the corner do
‘Cause girl I will always be in love with you
And when I look in your eyes
I’ll still see that spark
Until the shadows fall
Until the room grows dark
Then when I leave this Earth
I’ll be with the angels standin’
I’ll be out there waiting for my true companion
Just for my true companion
Now before i really start cryin –
