Special Words for Special People
Hope is not believing that troubles don't exist...
It is trusting that they will not last forever.......
That hurts will be healed......
and difficulties overcome.......
It is faith.... that a source of strength lies within
to lead us through the dark to the sunshine........
To My Ray:
Sweet heart, Darling, Love of my Life. Soulmate. Best Friend, Lover, Confidante. You
make feel so wanted, needed, loved and appreciated. I am so grateful to you for the
love and affection you have shown me and my children and continue to share with us
every day. You are the one person in this world who is a mirror image of myself both
emotionally and spiritually and the love we share is filled with passion, friendship,
commitment, trust, and understanding. I turn to you for trust, and you give it openly.
I look to you for inspiration, for answers, and for encouragement, and not only do you
never let me down, you lift my spirits up and take my thoughts to places where troubles
seem so much farther away and my joys feel like they are going to stay in my life
forever. My world is reassured by you, my tomorrows need to have you near, so many
of my smiles depend on you, and my heart is so Thankful that you are here.
You tell me daily how beautiful I am and I see the truth of those words in your eyes and
I feel it in my heart. I thank you for the many nights you have held me as I cried.
I thank you for listening when I needed to talk and for talking when I needed to
listen. I thank you for the support and encouragement you have given me as I have
navigated this road and I thank you for being there for me, no matter what, no matter
when, no matter where. You have touched my heart, you have touched my soul, you have
touched my life. For that I thank God daily!
Joe: THAT WHICH DOESN'T KILL US MAKES US STRONGER.
That sure describes our relationship! 14 years cannot be erased, and I wouldn't take
back even a moment of it. We have a bond that will always remain, an unbreakable
connection forged from pain, and love, and struggles. Life lead us down separate
roads but we will always meet again as we travel those roads and raise our children
together as friends. Thank you for being the man that you are and for remaining my
friend even though our marriage ended. Very few people in this world have a
relationship like we have and I feel blessed to have you in my life. You are
appreciated. Even though we are going to hit some slippery patches and rough
spots on this road we will find our way through as friends. We have shared laughter
and tears, joy and sorrow. We have shared many births as well as death, and those
memories will always remain a part of me.
For the 14 years that you were there for
me and for the three beautiful children we brought into this world, I thank you. You
told me so many times that I was and I would always be beautiful and special to you.
You told me you were proud to have me by your side, no matter what size I was! Those
words have stayed with me through the years, and your love, acceptance, and
understanding was, is, and always will be appreciated! Our marriage ended but
our friendship did not. For that I thank you as well!
