When we fell in love, I thought, “This is it! I am so in love with this woman!” I never expected that feeling intensify over the years. Oh, my darling, has it ever. I am more in love with you today than any day gone by.
I am captivated by you. I have been for over 22 years now. I mean, come on, I remember the first time I saw you. You were beautiful then. You are so much more so now. If I think back to those early days, I realize that you captivate me in a way that I never knew you would then. You are an amazing mother.
Make no mistake, I always knew you would be a good mama. When we found out that our little one was on the way, I was excited to see you in this new way. I was nervous about how I would do, but not about you. I knew you would be great. I had no idea you would be this great.
I remember so clearly seeing you hold him that first night in the hospital. You had been so brave. You had worked so hard. You fought like a champion and we made tough decisions together. God watched over us. After all that stuff you went through, there you were with our baby in your arms. Your smile had never been more radiant. Your contentment had never been more complete. It was and is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
With each year that goes by, you keep getting better and better. How do I know this? Our boy loves you. It is a core part of who he is. He loves his mama like crazy. I am so proud to see it. I love the way he is growing up and you get so much of the credit for that. You didn’t know in the beginning that being a boy’s mama was what you were born to do, but it fits like a glove.
I am so proud to be your Husband. I love you my darling Marixa. Happy Mother’s Day to my bride. You are the perfect mother for our son. We celebrate you today!
