It's That Simple!

“The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for” (Bob Marley).

Dear Tonya,

Happy Anniversary!

I find myself sitting here on our anniversary thinking about all the unforgettable times we have shared together.

Just thinking about these times makes me happy. But, more than just being happy, I am proud to be part of something extraordinary—you.

I was going to write a lengthy, detailed letter confessing my unconditional love to you, but that would be somewhat of a waste of time. It would be a waste to write a letter so extensive when my feelings remain so logically simple in my mind. It only takes a few words to clearly describe how I feel about you.

To everyone else who knows you, you are a bright, capable, caring woman who is beautiful and kind. Without you, their lives would be a little more difficult and a little less pleasant.

To me, you are a huge part of me. Without you, I would not be me. I would not faintly resemble the man I am today.

It’s that simple!

I love you with all my heart.




  1. Like God loving us, sometimes the most simple is the most profound.

    You are blessed, but so is she. None of the "married above yourself" joviality this time. Let's just say God knew what He was doing, and demonstrated it for the two of you, and anyone around, who cared to see, to see.

  2. Oh. Happy Anniversary, you newlyweds, you.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I can't wait to read what you have written.
