Dear Rob

I’m writing this to you today to tell you how much I love you and I wanted to thank you for being such a wonderful husband.  You are so incredibly supportive and for that I am both thankful and lucky.  When I was looking for a mate, I only wanted four things:  someone taller than me, someone older than me, someone who has a college education and someone who is gainfully employed.  If I had just gone with those qualities I would not have found you.  I’m glad that you’re so much more than all of those qualities!

I am also so very glad that we have so much in common, but at the same time, we are each other’s strength.  Where I am weak, you are strong and visa versa!  You are such a wonderful compliment to my personality!

Another thing that I was hoping for in a man was that he had a good family.  I’m so glad that you have wonderful supportive parents, too.  I love your family–I know you know; I’ve told you a million times!  It really does make life easier when everyone just gets along and there’s no bickering!  Your family is so easy to get along with and I love it!

We are well on our way to another phase in your military career and I’m excited.  It brings new and exciting challenges, but it also creates some anxiety and frustration.  I’m looking forward to our new move and our new house.  We’re almost there.  I know that you’re stressed with your job and I will try to make it as painless as possible so you don’t have to worry about the homefront–just worry about your Soldiers.  I’ll take care of you–because you take great care of me.

I just wanted to let you know that I love you!
