Mike, I love you. I love you more than I did seven years ago today, when we spoke our vows to each other and to God in front of our friends and family. I love you more than I did before O and Y were born – I had no idea of the father you would become. I love you more than I did 2 months ago – I had no idea the strength and faith you would show as we traveled to Vietnam to bring Emmett home. I love you more than I did 2 weeks ago – I had no idea the depths of patience and endurance you would exhibit as we wait out this hospital stay. I love you more than I did yesterday – I had no idea you would bring me roses.
Thank you for putting up with me – with my frustrations and worries, my doubts and pessimism. Thank you for sticking with me even when I take all of it out on you. Thank you for loving us so well. Thank you for spending the night in the hospital tonight.
