One more day…

…to say “I love you” face to face.

…to hold your hand.

…to feel your arms around my shoulders.

…to put my head on your chest and cry.

…to sit in your lap.

…to ride while you drive.

…to fetch your coffee.

…to feed you fattening desserts.

…to listen to you read me news stories.

…to have you take care of something that is broken.

…to have you amuse the baby while I cook dinner.

…to follow your lead during family rosary.

…to let you grill dinner.

…to curl up with you at bedtime.

…to wake up in the night and feel your presence.

…to wake you up to hear the strange animal noises outside.

…to let you sleep late.

…to kiss you goodbye.

    What a beautiful tribute to your husband and to the sacrament of marriage.

    Thank you to your entire family for the sacrifice you make for our country. And I've been complaining because all I've gotten to do is kiss my husband goodbye. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk. I'll cherish those kisses.

    God bless you all.
