Happy Anniversary!

Today HD and I have been married for 12 years!  It seems like we have been together forever!  I am very thankful for that, I love HD more than anything else in the whole world!

Dear HD~
You are the most wonderful husband in the world, I am not just saying that because you are mine!  I am thankful everyday for how good to me you are.  You are not only a wonderful husband who prays for me daily, leads me spiritually and loving guides me you are my best friend!  You know I have some great girl friends, but you, my love, are the best friend I could ever ask for!  No matter what I need you are always there for me.  No matter what I need to say you always listen, you always care.  You are always my biggest advocate and encourager, thank you.
I knew even before our first date that you and I needed to be together, remember your girlfriend told you, how I felt.  I love that you only dated her for 2 weeks!  I love that your longest girlfriend was 3 weeks until you met me!  I love that I am the only woman you have ever loved!  I knew the very first time you kissed me that I never wanted anyone else in the world to kiss me but you, not then, not now, not ever!
The day you asked me to marry you on the steps of our little home, I was changed forever, I said yes with no hesitation, I didn't have to think, I knew we were created for each other and each other alone.  There has not been one day in the last 12 years that I have ever regretted my decision, I would marry you 1000 times!  You make me a better person!  You are my favorite part of everyday!  
When you made me a mother, again you amazed me, with your big hands you gently took our tiny son holding rocking and speaking softly to him.  I will always remember the joy I felt, how amazing that I instantly loved you even more, I didn't know that was possible to love you more you already had my whole heart, and then each time we had another child our love grew even more, we were no longer just a couple but a family.  I love how you are such an amazing father, our children are blessed beyond measure!
This year when you had a vasectomy reversal to grow our family, I was so grateful for your love to me.  I was grateful that God again gave us the same desire and even though you knew how painful this was going to be you did it.  I loved being by your side during the surgery.  I will never forget the pain you went through that day to have a baby with me again.  I don't know very many men who would do that for their wife, you are one of a kind!  I love when you tell me you want to have a baby with me.  I love how you hold me and pray with me, when I am not pregnant, how you wipe my tears with your thumb and how you are always positive about having more children, knowing and believing God will bless us in his time.
In the last few weeks with my Grandpa dying, I can't even begin to tell you how much your constant devotion has meant to me!  You have kept me strong.  I am so thankful that the night he died you held me all night, and that you have held me every night since.  There were days when I felt like my feet wouldn't carry me and you held me tight and helped me along.  All of the difficult decisions we had to make were easier with you by my side.
Waking up and going to sleep in your arms is the most welcome place in the world.  Thank you for starting and ending each and everyday praying with me.  Thank you for loving me!  Thank you for being you.
I love you always!
Me
