A Letter to my Husband.

Ricky1 thumb A Letter to my Husband.Dear Ricky,

I am not an effusive person, so this letter is harder than anyone can imagine. You know me so well, that I don’t need to tell you that, though. wlEmoticon smile1 A Letter to my Husband.

Yes, I tell you “I love you” every day and usually several times a day – like when you leave for work, if we talk on the phone, when you return from work, and before we fall asleep. Yes, I cook for you most days. However, I am not sure that I have ever told you just how much you really mean to me and why! In honor of Valentine’s Day and our upcoming Anniversary, I am breaking out of my shell and declaring the whys… publicly!

I love you! You are my better half, my best friend, my MAN! When something happens in my day (good or bad) you are the one I want to share it with. Jerry Maguire says it best, “You complete me!” Simple as that! I am a much better person because you are my husband.

Now, I can say “I love you” all day long, I can show it every minute of the day, but to me the “why I love You’s” are so much more important!

You run and lift weights. Yet, you are the person in our house who will sew up a hole in the boys’ clothes and do a really good job of it.

You sit right there with all those gossiping women like it is no big deal! Although you would probably prefer that your left-handed boy play baseball, you tell him how proud you are of his dancing and gymnastics abilities and help him improve his confidence so he can deal with the mean kids at school that call him a ballerina!

clip image002 thumb2 A Letter to my Husband. You have never once complained about my cooking. While I do a good job most of the time, there have been times when I have tried something new and it turned out so nasty that I wouldn’t even eat it. Yet, you smile and say, “It isn’t that bad, Baby!” Then, proceed to get seconds!

clip image002 thumb3 A Letter to my Husband. We round each other out so well when it comes to school for our boys. When I am ready to go tear someone a new one for treating my kids bad, you gently calm me down and then help the boys work it out. You might not know that “siphel” isn’t a word, but without you our boys would be failing Math for sure! We know I have no idea what congruent lines are, nor can I divide more than a couple numbers!

clip image002 thumb4 A Letter to my Husband. I am supposed to be the writer in this family, but you do so much better at putting your feelings on paper than I ever could! For every special occasion (birthdays, anniversary’s, etc) you write the sweetest things to me on facebook and in cards.

clip image002 thumb5 A Letter to my Husband. You make me feel special! You are not shy about telling me I am beautiful (and telling others that your wife is beautiful). You let me know how proud you are of me! You ask everyday about my little blog. You notice if I get a haircut. You rub my back when it hurts, even if you are exhausted!

clip image002 thumb6 A Letter to my Husband. You are really such a good guy and treat all women as special people. You treat them like you really care! If a female is crying, you don’t run like some men! You gather her in your arms and give her words of encouragement. Sisters, Mother, Mother-in-Law, Co-Workers, and the lady next door are all special in your eyes. With that said, I don’t ever feel that those people are above me! You make me feel like the most important woman in your life and make me proud to see you comfort others.

Thank you, Ricky, for allowing me to be your wife! For loving me more than I could ever think possible! For being the Father of my (our) children! I love you!
