“True love is not so much a matter of romance as it is a matter of anxious concern for the well being of one’s companion”

To the man who...

  • always calls during his lunch time to see how we are and has done this since we started dating
  • is always willing to go out of his way to make me or Evie more comfortable
  • runs out to get ice cream or snacks without complaint
  • went shopping with me on Saturday because I wanted to and I still have no friends
  • And didn't complain once the whole time
  • went to a priesthood meeting last night and while there wrote me a beautiful letter
  • Which he left on the couch for me to find this morning. It details how much he loves and appreciates me
  • does more than his share of housework and diaper changes
  • sometimes gets up in the middle of the night with me and Evie because I have to get up. Solidarity. 
  • never complains and is always optimistic
  • loves us with his whole heart
  • has the best work ethic I have ever seen
  • always makes me laugh (and sometimes snort)
  • is always ready with a hug and encouraging words when I need it most*
To the man who is my eternal companion and my very best friend, you make me feel worthwhile. Thank you. 

* I was feeling pretty discouraged last night and then this morning I found a letter he wrote to me last night before he got home, lying on the couch. Part of which said, "I don't think you realize who you are. You are a very talented, intelligent, and capable person... I don't know why you seem to doubt yourself but you're an amazing woman and I've seen you do amazing things in these past two years."
