When we got married, I know we both wanted more than anything to live “Happily Ever After” but that kind of joy and closeness doesn’t come from just wishing, it comes from being together every day and everything in between. It comes from being there for each other and developing a bond of trust that cannot be broken.
As my husband, you have gone an extra mile more times than one. You’ve been the strong, loving father our family needs and because of your love, you’ve made me believe that we will indeed live “happily ever after.”
