Dear Jen, a Letter From Your Husband.

Sorry we have not posted in a while, but we have been without internet for a few days and have zero time to be here for ATT to fix it.

Things are going well, but I will let Jen do updating later this weekend. Besides, I cannot write like her.

I am providing this update, while she is out with Connor, as I have struggled with a way to thank her for all the things that she does for me and for our family on a daily basis. Very few can understand what she does 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week, but I thought the least I could do was share a little public appreciation for her.


My heart, My soul, the Love of My Life

A sacrifice…appreciated by few.
A love…unconditional and true.
How to thank her, I have not a clue.
So this poem, for now, will have to do.

Thank you Dear,
For all your strength and power.
You lift me up in my darkest hour.

Thank you Sweetheart,
For your comfort and endless love.
You’re a savior, an angel, a gift from above                                              

Thank you Sunshine,
For never wavering and being strong
And being by my side in this journey, no matter how long.

Thank you Jen,
For raising both Connor and JD
Thanks to you, both boys are amazing.

I could never do the things you have to
I could never handle the stresses that you do
The world will never understand how much you give and give
& I will never know a stronger woman, for as long as I live.

Showing you my thanks, I was not sure what to do,
But Jen, you are amazing and I will always love you.
