Love letter to my husband. I love the way…

Now I know that by now I don’t need words to express the way I feel about you. Simply a fleeting glance, a sexy pout, a gentle brush of the hand, and we’re right there, seeing eye to eye and deep into each other’s head. But, today on Christmas Day, your birthday, I wish to express honestly, explicitly, and publicly how I feel about you.

I love you for everything that you are, so gentle yet strong, so modest yet bold, the distinct head of our family yet still my equal partner. I loved you yesterday for all that you were, and I’ll love you tomorrow for all that you’re yet to be. You lead with such class and grace, and you’re loved by all because of it. You see the world through “rose-colored” lenses and in that world “every ting criss.” You are my balance, the voice of reason to my impulsiveness and the calm to my storm.

I love the way you love your family. Your love for our boys is pure and unconditional. You’re a man with maternal instincts rivaling that of any doting mother. Once you told me you would never kiss our babies if they were boys. Well Sir…I loved the way you showered our three baby boys with kisses, from the top of their tiny heads to the soles of their chubby little feet. Now as men, I love the way you guide and protect them and provide a stellar example for them to follow.

I love the way you love your mother, you…her precious gift born on Christmas Day…and now my gift for every day.

I love the way you love me. My husband, my protector, my doctor without a medical degree, my best friend, my lover. I love the way you make me feel safe and secure. I even love your over-protectiveness. I love the way you love me when everybody’s watching and even more so when nobody is. Loving you is easy, no insecurities and no jealousy. I love the way you rub my back, your fingers pressing into tiny scars left from darker days. I love your eyelids, cheeks and lip kisses before you leave in the mornings, gentle enough to say goodbye and sweet enough to make me miss you the minute you walk out the door.

I love you in sickness and in health, for better or for worse, you’ve always had my back and baby I’ve got yours…love you and Happy Birthday!!
