My loving husband,
I will never outgrow you. A lot has changed since we were first married. Back then we seemed to agree about almost everything… we were both on the “same page.” Foolishly I thought it would always be that way. But, that’s not the reality in any marriage or relationship; people change, life happens.
Wasn’t life so much simpler back then? We would come and go as we pleased. We were able to go over budget and it wasn’t a big deal. Our lives didn’t revolve around a napping schedule, we didn’t have disagreements on parenting, and our two work schedules occupy almost all our free time together.
I know I can blame you for things that are out of your control. I know I can take your hard work and love for granted. I know I can be a stubborn and refuse to see your side. I know there are times when I don’t show you any grace. I know this journey called life has never been so challenging and so hard on both of us.
The truth is through the ups and downs, I never had it this good. I’m happy God meant for us to be. I love you more and more everyday. I’m so proud of the man you are and the man you are growing to be. I’m proud of the way you have courageously lead our family even when some of the closest people to us, turned against us. I’m proud of the hard work you put in, day in and day out to provide for us. I’m proud of the daddy you are and the time you take to be with the kids even when you are dead tired.
So you see, there is no way I could ever outgrow you. The only thing I can do is grow old with you.
With all my love,
