Two orange cats
Some tadpoles, grasshoppers, beetles, caterpillars, butterflies and spiders
Lots of laughs
Lots of sleep loss
Lots of tears
Some scary times
Some times when I thought we wouldn't make it
Lots of joy
Lots of understanding
Lots of silliness
Lots of compromise
Lots of listening
Lots of hearing
Lots of hugs and kisses
Lots more I haven't listed
Three kids that I wouldn't trade for anything
Kids that wouldn't be who they are without you and I working together.
Kids who wouldn't be who they are if we didn't feel free to disagree about how to raise them.
Kids who wouldn't be who they are if we didn't work out those disagreements.
Kids who wouldn't be who they are, if they didn't see the model we try to create for them every day on how to do this marriage thing right.
Kids I'm crazy proud of.
One husband, whom I love with all my heart.
One husband that I wouldn't trade for anything.
One husband that has worked very hard on our marriage.
One husband that I've been thrilled to have as my partner for the last twenty-two years.
One husband that I hope will be glad to spend the next twenty-two years with me.
Truly, Madly, Deeply.
Love You, Sweetie.
