A letter to my Sweetheart
It was back in high school some 27 years ago that I fell in love with you.
I remember the way you would hold my hand while we walked down the hall, like I was your girl... even though I knew I was not... I loved the way you would let me where your Football Jacket when I was cold. Our entire senior year we had the biggest crush on each other but for some reason, neither of us could admit it. I still remember that kiss you snuck in Horticulture class, only to get caught by Coach. But our love was not meant to be in 1983.
Our lives took us in diffent direction until our paths crossed briefly in 93. But as fate would have it, we were both once again going in differnt directions.
The day I walked back into your life on November 9th,1999, I knew that this time it would be forever.
These last 8 years, you have loved me, cared for me and comforted me more than I ever thought was possible. When I look in your eyes, I know that I am safe. I know that I am loved... Even when I give you reason to want to head for the hills with my emotional ups and downs... with my need to control... with my bad habits that drive you crazy.. you stay. Not only do you stay, you always make me feel like I am special. But it is not only the way you love me that makes you special, it is the way you read to your son eveynight even when you worked 14 hours and are bone tired. It is the way you have opened your heart to love my boys despite the pain they have caused. It is all the little things you sacrafice for us all.
Happy Valentines Sweetheart. I love you and hope to share many more days loving you... XOXOXOXOOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX
