Today is the day that I am announcing to all our friends and family that I love you with all my heart and always will do. I wish to say thank you. Thank you for putting up with me for all these years through the hard and trying times.
Although we have had our challenges we have made it through together. We are stronger together. Stronger than individuals and we have proven that to be true. We have beaten the odds as a young couple raising a fantastic young family and a big part of that is because of you: because of your drive, your love, your ability to make things work and most of all because of your strength, your strength to beat and overcome anything that has tried to stop you. You have never let anything stop you from being the best mother or partner that anyone could hope for, and I promise to help keep this strength and love alive in you forever.
So even though you wouldn’t dive with me to make giving you your first ring easy would you take the ring I’ll give you shortly, and make the rest of my life better knowing you will be by my side forever.
First I’d like to thank you for being by my side during the happiest days of my life, for giving me our four beautiful children, for being a strong loving father who always shows them what is important in life, and for always making time for all of us, no matter how crazy life gets. I thank you for your smile and partnership, and for always being my light when things have been dark, for always making me feel safe and special.
I promise to continue to encourage you, inspire you and to love you truly through good times and bad. I promise I will always be there to laugh with you, to lift you up when you’re down and to love you unconditionally through all of our adventures in life together. I promise to cherish every moment, to be fair and to listen to you. I promise to always make time for us, to dream with you and to be your biggest fan. I will be loyal to you and I will love and adore you exactly as you are for all of our days together.
I offer you all that I can give and with all that I am I thank you for always being the love of my life.
