An open letter to my husband

I love you more than words can say. And you deserve more than this typed message on a blog. But I want to say this to you and I want everyone to know it, not just you.

You are the most amazing person I have ever met, let alone talked to and gotten to know. And yet some how God saw it that you would be my husband, and I ended up the luckiest woman on the planet. Because I got you. You are incredible. And you have given me the two most amazing gifts on the planet, our sons Gunner and Atticus. They are two of the most incredible blessings I could ever have imagined.

I could never have had this incredible life without you. You are my everything. You are in every breath, you are in every thought I have. And I hope I can help you realize that in our journey through this amazing life God has given us. I want to do everything I can do to help you see that you, because of the Lord, are the source of this incredible life.

God first of course, but he has put you at the helm of our life, and you sacrifice everything you have for us. You put your life and your future on the line for us and I will never be able to express my gratitude for your sacrifice. I know it kills you to be away from us, as it does us (we love and miss you more than we could ever fully express to you) and I know you would do it 1,000 times over to protect us. We will never hold it against you, because we know it's what you must do. You are my rock and you are my anchor. I am blessed beyond what I thought was capable. You are beyond incredible. And I, we, love you so much, without compare. We know your sacrifice and we thank you so much for it.
Bruce, you are amazing. You are gorgeous, beautiful, intelligent, smart, hilarious, sexy, seductive, capable, admirable, impressive, and incredible. What did I do to deserve you?
I don't know, but I don't care. God gave you to me and I will never complain. You are perfect to me, and a wonderful and amazing father. Our kids are so lucky to have you, they are only beginning to realize.

You are amazing and I love you.
I just thought you should know.
<3 and xoxo forever and ever

Your adoring wifey,


  1. So sweet. God truly has blessed you :)I watched a video today of soldiers coming home to their wives and babies and I was crying like crazy. I can't even imagine. You are so strong.

    (Reply to your comment on my blog: Yes, being left alone with your own thoughts can be scary, but something good seems to always come from it. The chicken recipe: (1 Tablespoon) Paprika, garlic powder, salt, pepper, dried parsley rubbed into it. I put it in crock pot for 6 hrs over chopped onion and green peppers but it could be cooked anyway!)

  2. Thank you so much for your sweet words. I don't feel strong when he's gone, but I guess all military wives/moms/girlfriends/significant others are when it comes to their mate being deployed. :)

    And TY so much for the recipe! My hubs and kids also thank you :)

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. What a beautiful letter! I am also blessed with a wonderful husband who is my soul mate and best friend. I also like the concept of your blog because I am definitely a rocker mom, more on the metal side. :) Last Friday we scored 2nd row tickets to Mayhem Fest to see KoRn, Rob Zombie, Lamb of God and Five Finger Death Punch (other states had some good bands too, like Atreyu and Hatebreed).

    Found you through Bloggy Moms and am now following via Google Friend Connect and NetworkedBlogs! Hope you will follow back!

    Thanks and rock on!

  4. Oh my gosh! The hubs is going to be so jealous of you! He wanted to go this year so bad, be he couldn't make it. He went last year and the year before and saw Marilyn Manso, Five Finger Death Punch, and some other really amzing bands those years so he was all sad he couldn't go this year.

    And we were both sad we couldn't go to Warped Tour this year either! We've been going since 2002 and finally we live near Seattle, and we couldn't go to any shows/ concerts around here! At least not yet :)

    Thx for following! So glad you found me and I will definitely follow back!

  5. Wow. That was such a beautiful letter. You and your husband are a great example of love. I love seeing that.

    I myself married my best friend and soul mate as well. I thank God for him everyday. Even though I tease him to no You are a strong woman, God bless ya
