Happy Valentines Day to my Best Friend...

Valentines Day (in my opinion) is a day of forced affection and people make too much of it on only one day of the year, but maybe because I didn't even see my hubby today I really want to express just how much love I do have for this wonderful man.
(read on only if you can stomach sap, but babe, this post is really for you.)
I love that I can talk to you about ANYTHING or nothing and just feel your support when I'm struggling.
I am so grateful for your patience and long suffering of my many faults.
I am always amazed at your ability to be the worlds best daddy to your two beautiful children, they both absolutely adore you.
I think a perfect day would have to include your company.
I appreciate the fact that you work so much to support us and give us more in this life,.. all we really need is you. (stop working so hard :P )
I love that when you laugh, it makes me laugh too (I'm not really laughing at you).
When you tell me that everything is going to be okay, I believe you.
I feel so much hope when you express your many "dreams" to me for our future. Thank you for pulling me up into the clouds with those dreams, sorry that I don't stay up there with you longer.
You are the light in my life, you keep me sane, you are truly my BEST FRIEND!

I never had no one
that i could count on
i've been let down so many times
i was tired of hurtin'
so tired of searchin'
till you walked into my life
it was feelin'
i'd never known
and for the first time
i didn't feel alone
you're more than a lover
there could never be another
to make me feel the way you do
oh we just get closer
i fall in love all over
every time i look at you
i don't know where id be
without you here with me
life with you makes perfect sense
you're my best friend
you stand by me
and you believe in me
like nobody ever has
when my world goes crazy
your right there to save me
you make me see how much i have
and i still tremble when we touch
and oh the look in your eyes when we make love
you're more than a lover
there could never be another
to make me feel the way you do
oh we just get closer
i fall in love all over
every time i look at you
i don't know where id be
without you here with me
life with you makes perfect sense
you're my best friend

Thank you Aric, from the bottom of my heart for the very best Valentines gift... YOU!

There is no one I would rather spend eternity with.

I love you, Brooke

If Jasper is just like me than you know that I don't like to be in the spotlight. :-)

If I do anything right it is because I always feel that I am not doing enough. I make WAY to many mistakes for the praise you have given me and I pray everyday that I will be a good dad and a better husband.

The truth is... I'm selfish.

I work to much because I don't want to say no to my family. I make you laugh because I want to hear your laugh and see your smile. I play with the kids because I want them to be happy and to feel loved. I dream because I want my family to have more. That's just a few and as you can see there's alot of "I" in there and even though I want these things I still fall short and have to try harder everyday.

But thanks babe... I love you. Everytime you are away from me it is a thorn in my heart that only a touch from you can remove.

WOW, i always think your letters deserve to be framed, so does this comment! you certainly do a much better job expressing yourself in writing than i do. ;) sorry to put you in the spotlight, but i dont brag enough about you, and i wasn't very nice today and it is our 9 year anniversary! Can we celebrate?
