...to wish my wonderful husband of 17 years a very happy anniversary.
17 years ago today I was starting to get ready for the biggest day of my life:
- fixing my hair
- eating breakfast
- doing last minute things with my sisters
- savoring the final moments with my parents before entering marriage
- relishing the thought of starting my new life with Lee
Lee is everything I could have ever hoped for in a marriage partner and more.
He is an extraordinary dad to our children and grows in his role every day with lots of grace
He is a good son-in-law for my dad who only had daughters (and now also has 3 sons-in-law to do boy things with, plus 3 nephews...)
He is an exemplary friend of many
He is a faithful, hardworking employee
He is an excellent provider as a result
He is my best friend and lover
He is a most loving, kind, and generous husband in every way
He is gentle and patient, oh so very patient
He is easy-going and caring
He is musically brilliant
He is humble, never flaunting his brilliance ever
He is motivated and self-disciplined
And I could go on and on and on about this man who has been rocking my world these last 17+ years and who will be rocking it for the rest of our lives.
I love you, Funny. You are the best of all time!!! Happy 17th. I don't know what the future holds for us, but I know that I want to go into it with you by my side.
[...this progam will resume after some celebrating of said anniversary and some family time...see you in a few days!]
