This is a dedication post to my husband – a remarkable person that amazes me everyday. And yes as corny as it sounds, seeing him love our children makes me fall more and more in love with him. Honestly, I feel incredibly lucky and I just wish he felt an once of how wonderful I think he is. Such a selfless person who truly gives himself to us. A frontline hero dedicated to providing the best care at his job because he knows he is dealing with someone’s life, someone’s loved one and I truly believe he gives the best possible care.
When I met my husband I didn’t know what love was. I knew I wanted to feel love but I didn’t know how to give it. Somehow he knew immediately that I was “the one”. But he never pressured me, he let me drive. And that was something I never had experienced. Soon after we met, I fell in love and it was incredible because he was my best friend, he loved me unconditionally and really would do anything for me. I never felt that before. I knew I wanted a family with him because of how much he loved me and how much we loved each other. Now true story, we have our moments – we fight and get mad. But 98% of the time he will apologize and get my stubborn self to let it go and we laugh and move on. But through all the ups and downs he is there for me and stands by my side.
Being a mom is hard, and he has always supports me. We discuss what’s important to us, how we want to raise our kids, and stick with it. I can always count on him and never have to question if he is on my side. When I became a stay at home mom I constantly put myself down and criticized all the things I couldn’t get done. But he always made sure I knew that he appreciated me, what I did and always supported me. He recognized that although the dishes weren’t done our kids had a wonderful day, a great meal and went to bed on time. He knew I put the kids first, ahead of myself. So he would always try to do little things for me to show his appreciation.
I know when the kids get older there will be more hurdles and difficult situations but I know I couldn’t do it without him. We are a team, and he will always support me. My children have the best possible father and I’m grateful they can witness what and how their partner should treat them and what raising a family is about – about love and working together. We definitely are not perfect and we remind our children of that too. We always say that we will try to be better and talk it out with them. Side by side we will stick together. Love never fails.
You’re the one person I always want to be around. I miss you whenever you’re not here. Besides our kids you’re the first person I want to see everyday and the last person I want to see at night. You understand me and all my ups and downs. I can’t think of a better person. For someone who didn’t grow up having their dad around or a model “parent” you sure turned out to be the absolute greatest father and husband. Thank you for being my partner in crime and my soul mate in this life. I love you with all my heart.
