I just wanted to write a little love letter to tell you that I love you. No, it’s not our anniversary. No, it’s not your birthday or mine. It’s not Valentine’s Day or any other holiday. But today is special, just like every day that I am blessed to wake up beside you. When you smile, my heart swells with joy. When you hold my hand, I feel an overwhelming sense of peace. When I look into your eyes, I feel calm, and remember that everything will be okay. You are my heart’s beat. You are my heart’s desire.
I remember the day we first met. We were students at Christopher Newport University. You seemed so cool, and were so cute, and I just remember thinking how kind you were to me. I loved our silly conversations, and how you would hold my books and walk me to class, even though your class was way across campus. Our friendship evolved during a really difficult time in my life. I was overcome with depression, and felt myself spiraling with no way out in sight. I prayed to God that he would send me a friend–someone that would make me feel like I’m not alone. And he sent me, you. Josh, I want you to know that you were my light at the end of the tunnel. You made me believe that my life was worth living, again.
I can go on for days and days and days telling you just how amazing you are to me, and how much I appreciate you. You are so smart–my personal Google, because you know a little about everything. You are so calm, and you balance me out when my type A nerves run amuck. You’re so funny, kind, and gentle. You’re an amazing father to James. His eyes light up when you’re in the room, because he knows how much you love him. I know you’ll be that much more amazing when Baby Girl arrives. You always put us first, and you do everything you can to support us, provide for us, protect us, and love us unconditionally. You are an incredible business partner, and support me in all my dreams and aspirations. Heart’s Content truly would not exist without you.
I am just so grateful for your love, your grace, your patience, and kindness with me. You always lift me up, and make me feel like my best self. You go out of your way everyday to make me feel loved, and so special. I know I’m not perfect–I’ll be the first to tell you that. Some days I look into your eyes and think, “Wow! What did I do to deserve you?” And the truth is, I don’t know. But I do know how blessed I am to have you in my life. You are truly God’s gift to my life, and a personification of His love for me. I love everything about you, I love you more and more each day, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to spend every waking day by your side. I love you so much, Josh. Thank you for being you. Thank you for loving me.
