To the lady that stole my heart and my soul,
Well, Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and everyone, including myself, is making dinner reservations, buying chocolates and flowers and cards that carry the sentiment and feelings you have for your loved one. It’s a wonderful time to express your feelings to your loved one, and I have to be completely honest with you. Every day is Valentine’s Day at my house.
Every morning I wake up and see my beautiful wife is like a gift. She gave me the gift of love and gorgeous wonderful babies. I just have to sit back, take a breath, and realize today is another gift. A gift of hugs and kisses from the most important people in my life. To hear Liam and Stella run down the hall yelling “Daddy! Daddy!” and I’m met with huge hugs and kisses. I hear Hattie screaming “da da da da” from her high chair cracks me up and warms my heart. Hattie squeals with joy with a big hug and a kiss. Finn hears all the commotion and starts to coo and smile. It’s not until I pick him up does he realize that all this is because daddy came home. He greets me with arms and legs kicking and the biggest gummy smile from ear to ear with a ton of drool that drips to the floor, or usually the tops of my boots.
Then the crowning moment. The most beautiful woman I have ever seen is in my kitchen. Everything turns to slow motion, she turns to catch my gaze, and with every step closer to me her smile gets bigger and bigger, her gorgeous brown eyes sparkling with a satisfaction of seeing me and knowing she’s safe and loved. I’m immediately transported back to that tiny production office in Ottawa, Canada where we first met. It takes my breath away, and I’m overwhelmed with the feeling of love. This is love.
This is how I feel every day, every waking moment of my life, and I can’t believe that this is my life. My wonderful crazy life. A life full of love that I acknowledge with every breath I breathe.
Happy Valentines Day, my love. You changed my life, and I am forever grateful for the love and family you’ve given me.
I love you.
Blessed is the man who is loved.
Praise and devotion is deserved to the woman that gives it.
