Yeah, I’d Do It All Over Again

For the past week or so I've been reminded of an important date, today, August 18. Eight years ago I married my buddy. Jodi has been an awesome wife. My life wouldn't be near as full and rich without her.

Dear Jodi,

I'd do it all over again. Without hesitation. You've been a godsend to me. My life would be empty without you. I remember praying for a woman I could share my life. Someone I could enjoy being around. Thank goodness God had another plan. He gave me a wife that I not only enjoy being around and doing things with, He gave a helpmate. You bring completeness to my life. You balance me. You provide advice and wisdom when I really need it. God speaks through you! So many times we've discussed an issue and the perspective you bring blows me away. You make me see things through a new lens and I'm better for it. I love you.

I don't know a better way to let you know how much you mean to me other than to say that I wouldn't change anything. I'd gladly start down this road with you given the chance. I'm thankful that God gave you to me and that our life has been as rich as it has been. You're my love and friend. You're the best mother and wife I could have asked for. It's hard to imagine how God could've done any better. I love you with everything that I have and I take my responsibilities toward you and our children very seriously. I'm blessed to have those responsibilities. You have my promise that I'll always love you and do my best to always do right by you. Thank you for eight unbelievable years. I'm looking forward to many many more. Thanks for making my life so rich. I love you always.
