who you have become

You said it best when you said that your life is so full of love that you don’t have room for anger and hate.

I love that about you.

You said you are lucky because even though what you have is not typical, you have so much and so many.

That you can see this makes me love you all the more.

You did the right thing. You showed our children how to make amends. You showed them how to be the bigger person. You showed them how to be respectful.  You showed them how to stand up for themselves and those they love. You are teaching them how to love and how to be loved.

That inspires me.

That makes me think Pop would be proud.

That makes me proud.

You had a kitten in your shirt.

That makes you perfect for me. . .

. . . and it makes me want to be yours forever.

post edit.......................modern technology and photo enhancements shows me that is not a kitten in his shirt like the grainy 79 photo had me believing for the past ten years or so.  it is a spoon.  so he didn't have a love affair with furry little kittens with soft furry mittens as a tender two year old.  ehh. i still love him to pieces. there is nothing too shabby about a man who can bake.

Beautifully, perfectly said.

I'm shaking my fist in outrage, but you, Tony, are a rockstar. And even though I'm not your wife, I'm incredibly proud too!
