"We are have been together in sunshine and in shade" and I wouldn't trade a minute of it to be with anyone else.
We have not ever chosen the easy route and our life is filled with adventure, suspense, challenge and lots of clinging to one another. But we are firm believers in the "work hard, play hard" lifestyle. We give everything and love well. There is no way I would ever have been able to deal a minute of the past 6 years as a mom and foster mom without this man at my side. This man, who is my steady, even rock. I tell him often that we are like a tetherball pole - he's the anchor pole and I spin, securely fastened to him.
J, I love you always. You are my favorite. You always have been and always will. You are my hero. Thank you for teaching me how to love well. Your generous and patient love is the foundation for our family and I am the luckiest woman alive.
(and don't forget, you're not allowed to die first... We agreed on it)
