Diana,

I have a simple dream my love…

I want to grow old and odd with you by my side.
I’m more convinced than ever.
I’ve seen you…
Unselfishly take care of business…
Take care of me in ways that define commitment…
Take care of our home…
Do your job with excellence and care…
Love the Moonpie…
Be a true friend to our daughter…
Walk the Wonder Hound…
Pay the bills…
Mow the lawn…
Plan meals for our full house…
Hold hands with me in dark places…
Laugh and cry with me…
Deal with unnecessary drama…
Pray with and for me for a miracle…
Kiss my hairless chin and reassure me that I’m still a pirate…
You have stayed and loved fierce and strong.
You have grown even more beautiful.
I didn’t think that was possible.
But…
I’ve seen the beauty of your character shine through.
And so I want nothing more than to grow old with you…
I will be odd.
You will be wonderful.
We will have great adventures.
We will dance and laugh loud.
We will look up and let sunsets take our breath away.
We will lose track of time as we play with our granddaughter…
There will be baby shark dance-offs, tea parties, snacks, ice capades, theme parks, cruises, high school graduation, a wedding, great grand babies!!
We will enjoy it all.
I want to grow old and odd with you by my side.
We will go to quirky little restaurants where we’ve never been.
We will eat breakfast at the same place everyday.
We will sit on beaches and sip margaritas.
We will watch Hallmark movies, because I like them more than I let on.
I want to grow old and odd with you by my side.
I love you.
I simply can not thank you (and the Creator of you) for what you have done and for who you are.
I will simply HAVE to live to be old and odd so that I have the time to express my gratitude.
