Now before you freak out, no you didn’t do anything wrong. I know you were just kidding, but it makes sense. No, you don’t have to make me upset to get a letter wrote about you. In fact, it can be quite the opposite. You can do something as kind as calling someone and sticking up for me. In a VERY mature way, I might add. That’s why you will always be my other half. My better half.
I appreciate you playing mediator. You don’t want to watch me get hurt. And I know you also don’t want the drama. (I don’t either.) You did something that meant so much to me. I have never had that before in my life.
You are my everything, babe. I knew from the moment we kissed that this was something different. Something much more than I had ever experienced. I knew this was it for me.
From that moment I knew you were my soul mate. When we first started dating I was in the worst place possible. I had just gone through something that broke me worse than anything ever had. And there you were, wanting to be someone for me to lean on. Wanting to be with me, for me.
You didn’t judge me and you didn’t leave me during all the bad times. You stuck it out for me. Just like I did for you. We’ve had each other’s backs on some serious stuff.
So, thank you to my other half.
Thank you for loving me at my worst, when you didn’t have to do that.
Thank you for choosing me to marry, for saying yes.
Thank you for putting me before everything.
Thank you for loving my son, getting to know him, playing catch with him, and being the best step-father anyone could ask for.
Thank you for our daughter, for giving her attention, and laying with us every night for story time.
Thank you for always eating ice cream with me. (Non-dairy, of course).
Thank you for putting up with all the bullshit day in and day out. (I know your job is so stressful.)
Thank you for loving me and helping me. And thank you for being there for me when I’ve needed you the most. (Even when you didn’t have to be.)
You are an amazing person. I don’t know if you understand just how thankful and grateful I am to call you my husband. I love you more than words can express (though I hope to get close enough for you to understand).
Without you, I don’t think I would be who I am today. You balance me out. You’re my everything. You’re the best man I could have ever asked for. My partner in crime, my best friend, my better half. The man I want to spend the rest of my days with.
I love you, my other half.
