insufficient words

this morning i asked our girlies what their favorite thing about their mom is....

eden: "i like a lot of things she makes... and she's cute"

delia: "i like her hugs"

gwen: "mamama"

it's hard for me to put into words how i feel about amanda on this mother's day.

saying "i love you" is not enough. i know if i tried to explain how i feel, it would just come out lacking, but here goes....

AMANDA, you are amazing. you are a source of strength and inspiration. you are my best friend and just being with you, hanging out, is good enough for me. just to be around you makes my day.

having you as my wife these last 7 1/2 amazing years has made me a better person. i can honestly say that i am who i am today because of you. i don't even want to think about what life would be like without you. i just hope you can continue to have patience with me as i work through my faults and weaknesses. i'm sorry for not always being the man you hope that i will be, but know that i am working at it and striving each day to be that man.

thank you for the beautiful family you have given me and thank you for being such a wonderful mother to our beautiful daughters; they love you so much, as do i. thank you for all you do for us everyday.

i know sometimes life gets busy, and it may not always seem like it, but the best part of my day, everyday, is coming home to you to see your smiling face and get a little welcome home kiss. you make my life joyful and you mean so much to me.

i love you, amanda, and hope you always know that. i can't wait for the rest of our lives together and all the wonderful things that lay ahead for us.

i love you, amanda. happy mother's day!
