To Wife

Today is day One of year 16 of our lives together. Yesterday was our 15th anniversary.

Thanks for sharing your life with me and thanks for participating as an equity partner in my life. You have been my inspiration, my joy and my muse. Working to keep up with your example of diligence, character and the pure love you give me are in large part why I am as successful as I have been. You make me a better man.
Your trust in me to be the father to your son is a great gift in my life. I have tried to be the best Dad I can be to him and the best partner I can be for you. Thanks for making me a Dad. I am proud of the young man we have grown during our marriage. He is the embodiment of our commitment to each other and keeps us focused to be the best examples we can be to him. I truly pray that he finds the kind of love and partnership that we have found in each other. With our example I think his odds are pretty good. I am proud of our son.
Every day I thank God when I wake up in the morning and see you beside me. Every day I ask God to give me just one more day with you in my life. Every day for 15 years and one day God has blessed me.
All I ask for is one more day.
You are my blessing.
I love you.
