    ~for the jewels~

    …I look into your faces, children
    and feel love and pride swell within me
    I see you in my mind’s eye…
    and embrace you daily in my thoughts

    all of you are perfect creations from precious
    seeds…. the very best that lovemaking
    can bring.. all possessing a unique
    blend of his attributes...

    but if ever you should ask it of me

    this is my honest answer…

    … it is because he is kind
    and gentle toward his loved ones
    because he is so giving
    and generous to strangers
    because he is so smart….
    and wise from his experiences
    because he is a warrior
    and faithful to the cause
    because his many talents
    have always served to bless
    because he is so strong,
    in his mind and in body
    because his spirit is peaceful
    and he’s careful with his love
    because his roaring laughter
    fills the room with so much joy….
    because he is the captain
    steering through storms with a firm hand…
    because he is a seeker of knowledge
    and a true believer
    because he’s not afraid
    to make necessary sacrifices

    because he is a leader,
    and thus, knows how to serve

    because he’ll never leave you
    because his word is bond
    because his loving his fierce...

    ...oh, I could spend a lifetime
    and still have more to say...

    I do not take for granted
    that there may come a day
    when you might come to
    question...when you just
    want to know

    what is the meaning of it all

    and

    why I love your father so....

    such a beautiful portrait you paint, Ms A. love derives from a giving...loving heart. there's no doubt to the purity that is you.

    HE IS INDEED A LUCKY MAN.
    YOURS IS A LUCKY FAMILY
    YOUR KIDS ARE LUCKIEST OF ALL...to have the love of two such loving parents.

    you should frame this and hang it in each of your children's rooms.

    beautiful PEACE.

    you are awesome when you write like this and bring emotion so strong it's like being hit with a tidal wave...

    if they ever want to know why their father loves you so...will you share it...

    your children are so lucky to witness a love like this between the two people who gave them life and who love them so...
