Nathan: my gift from God


Thank you for all that you are to me! I cannot thank you enough. You have been a splendid light and joy in my life.
When you are there to wake me up in the mornings, I don't thank you because I don't know how. Grumbles are all that ensue and the only way I know how to respond. I am sorry that I don't thank you then, but I am thanking you now!
Thanks for the roses you give to me on my birthdays and Valentine's Days.
For the understanding you show when I am down and dreary.
For the times when you have been there to cry with me.
Thank you for the tickles and laughter.
For reading together with me. Those times are my favorite!
Thanks for all the smiles and goofy remarks to help me smile too. You have no idea how much they mean to me!
Thank you for the late night cuddles and whispers when I can't fall asleep.
And for taking time to understand and sort out my problems, even when the problems are silly ones to you; you know just how to make me feel better!
Thank you for showing me how to think outside the box. That was the beginning of our adventures together!
Though I may get angry or upset with you some days, it is wonderful that you understand me even still and will be right by my side at the end of the battle. Thank you ever so much for that!
For the care you show when I have fallen, tripped, stubbed my toe, fallen again, slipped on nothing, etc., etc., I am truly grateful! Thank you for showing me I can laugh at my blunders and clumsy mistakes.
Thank you for showing me that my mistakes don't have to be my worst enemy and nightmare. That I can either overcome them or live with them and move on in life.
When you give me your undivided attention, and amaze me by it =), I am blessed and especially thankful for it.
Even in times when I want to be right and you show me truth, though I may not at first admit I am wrong, I do thank you for giving me the time to come to my understanding of the truth.
Thank you for your patience in listening to my constant chatter during one of my most blissful days.
Thanks for knowing how to be romantic.
And for scooping the kitty litter; it isn't a pleasant job!
For holding hands with me in the grocery store even though you don't want to be there.
Thank you for taking me grocery shopping. You have no idea how much I hate walking to the store to do the shopping!
And for coming home to me everyday! There are many husbands today that aren't faithful and make up lies of where they need to be instead of home. You are not one of them!
Thank you thank you thank you for your contentedness! It is an inspiration to me when I find little things here and there that I want or feel that I need.
Thank you for going to work everyday, that we can have food, clothing, and a place to sleep. Though some days you wish you had a higher income to provide more, how much money you make isn't what creates the strong bond that we have in each other!
And most of all I thank God for creating you! That you are who you are and that you aren't anybody else but you! That you are mine! The joy I have for you wells up in me and grows ever stronger by the moment.
You are my knight in shining armor, my hero, my sweetheart, my prince charming, my first boyfriend, my dream come true, my best Christmas present of 2006, and most of all, my husband! Thank you for the best two years of marriage I had never thought I would live, but was given anyway! God gave you for me to be my other half and to complete me. And that is just what you are and do! No one else could do it better than you!

Happy Anniversary!
