I would just like to say Happy Valentine’s Day to my wonderful husband, Jesse Schmucker!
I know this past year has been one of the hardest years yet, but I have never been more proud of you for how you have walked through it. I know that we do not know what tomorrow holds, but all I want is for you to hold me today and for every day we have left. Life is unpredictable and time is fleeting, so let’s not give the past an ounce of that precious time. Let’s spend our time loving each other, loving our children, and trying to make the world a better place if we can. Let’s not let those who refuse to forgive bring us down. If you ever feel torn down and undeserving of love, I will be there to build you up. You have always loved and supported me, even when I’m not my best. You have been, and continue to be, a wonderful father and have given me and our five beautiful children an amazing life that you should be proud of. I know that we’ve both made mistakes and have been childish in the past. We’ve done things without thinking as many people have while in their early years of adulthood. But now, we can put our childish ways behind us and move on toward a brighter future.
I look forward to teaching our children along side you, giving them their best chance in this crazy world. I look forward to seeing one or more of your amazing ideas become a reality. I look forward to you challenging me to be my best and me challenging you. I look forward to many more long nights of deep discussions begun by our many thought provoking questions we ask each other. I look forward to cherishing our children with you while they’re still children. I look forward to confronting new challenges with you, knowing that we are strong enough to handle anything as long as we are together. And, I look forward to whatever lies ahead knowing that our love will only evolve into something greater with every passing year.
I couldn’t imagine my life without you. I love you Jesse Schmucker!
