My little girl,
You are too young to understand this now, but the working day years from now you may find yourself looking forward to a soul to marry.
And from now until the working day comes I will pray to God above you’ll find someone who loves you the course your daddy enjoys me and who will love your children the behavior your father enjoys his.
I don’t mean it has to “look” the same, but what I do mean is that I hope you get to feel the mode I do being married to your dad.
For me — it’s not about how many times he tells me I am beautiful or even how often he says the words “I love you.”
It’s not about represents on special moments or astounds on random evenings.
It’s not about the money he makes, the places he takes us, or the picture he paints for our future together.
What it is about — what our love is an issue of — is the little bits of energy woven into the simple, ordinary times of each and every day that we live through together.
It is his steady mitt when my being is anything but.
It is his smile from across a crowded room when he knows we are thinking the same thing.
It is the way he forgives, the space he listens, and the course he shown by for us again and again.
It is the way he tries every single day to find the most meaningful ways to connect with you.
It is the way his perseverance and modesty can excel even mine “when were” being tested as parents.
It is the way he works hard to understand and uplift each of his children.
It is the way he always comes home to be with us, to spend tone time with us, to love us the best behavior he knows how.
For me, it’s not about anything fancy or flashy or over-the-top.
For me, it’s about how he makes me feel during the regular, everyday procedures of our lives.
My little girl, your father manufactures us feel affection not because of anything grandiose that he does, but because of all the little things he does time and time again.
And so, one day times from now you may find yourself looking forward to a gentleman to marry.
And from now until the working day comes I will pray to God above you’ll find someone who loves you the direction your father adores me and who will love your children the course your daddy adores his.
