I have made no secret of the fact that I wouldn’t have survived the delivery of our son or the last 10 weeks without you. I have told anyone who will listen.
You were the one who got me through the most intense pain of my life – you were with me through 19 hours of the most torturous back pain I had ever experienced (and I’ve experienced a lot!) and all of the other tortures that make up labour and delivery.
It wasn’t so much what you did or said (but your coaching at the end was one of the most helpful things anyone did that day, besides the numbing injections!). It was your presence.
Your presence makes everything better.
A screaming baby, a persistent neck ache or lack of sleep all seem more bearable with your company.
Thank you. I thank God for you every day.
I am so thankful that I got to meet you, that I got to marry you and that I get to raise this precious baby with you.
Please always remember to pause and take in these moments. They will never happen again. Please remember to invest in our relationship. Please remember family is more important than money. Please remember I will always love you.
