My heart is full today. As I think of what I am most grateful for, my thoughts go immediately to my husband, John. I don't know what I did to deserve such a great man, but I am so thankful for that blessing. I have never known anyone as selfless as my John. He is always serving, always thinking of others. He serves our community, our city, those in need, and especially his wife and children. From the first time we met, I knew there was something special about him. He knew he loved me and that we belonged together. Sure we had things we had to work out, but we fought hard for each other, but he fought the hardest. He made huge changes for me, our developing family, knowing in his heart that it was right, but so difficult.
He continues to stand by my side, loving me with patience (and it takes a lot), faith and strength, being the rock and foundation of our family. I know it hasn't been easy for him these 21 years, we have survived so many challenges, adversity, pain and suffering, to the point where we didn't know if we could make it.
John hasn't given up on me, ever. I am so thankful for his unconditional love and devotion he shows me daily. His heart is huge, so full of compassion and love for others, for his children and especially for me. He is my example of charity. I can't imagine eternity without him.
I love you, John.
