My dearest Jenny,
Today I along with your daughter, step-son, parents, friends, family and everyone you’ve touched over the past 35 years celebrate a day that has wonderfully impacted our lives.
Over these 35 years you’ve accomplished so much and you continue to do so with each and every day.
You are an amazing mom to Kaylin, balancing love, patience, tenderness and caring discipline to help her become an incredible young lady. Being a single mom has not been easy with numerous challenges thrown at you, yet each and every one you’ve overcome while at the same time teaching Kaylin valuable lessons about life and love.
You’ve taken that same incredible skill as a parent and shared it with Josh. I know he’s learned a lot from you already and has experienced every bit of that same love you give to Kaylin.
Despite having a couple thousand miles in between you and your family you are still a supportive, caring and loving daughter, sister and aunt. You do everything for them that’s within your means and even then you’ll go above and beyond that. You may not be able to see them as often as you’d like, but they know how much you love them and how you’ll do anything within your power to be there for them each and every day.
Friends like the ones you have are not easily gained, and even harder to keep. You are always there for them with a listening ear, a loving hug, cheers of support or a wealth of reasonable advice and guidance. You love them like an extended set of family, each and every day, with every Facebook post, phone call and text message you make. To them you’re not just a friend, you’re a sister to them all with a big heart and bright smile.
And then there’s the woman you are to me….
You give so much to so many others, yet you still manage to give me so much each and every day. I get everything they all get and so much more!
You are patient and understanding with me like no one has ever been before. I can seemingly drive you nuts, yet your love for me never falters.
You have shown me love. Pure, true, wonderful and totally unselfish love that I thought was just something that was made up in movies.
You continually inspire me and help me see how much more I am capable of accomplishing. Just when I think I haven’t got anything left, you help me find that I can do so much more and then help me do it.
You have made and continue to make me a better man in every way shape and form.
I cannot wait until the day I get to call you my wife, and look forward to getting to spend the rest of my life with you.
Jenny, you are so much to so many people and none of us will ever be able to properly show or tell you how much you truly mean to us. Had it not been for that day 35 years ago that God blessed the world with you, life just wouldn’t be the same.
Happy Birthday My Love! May God bless you (and us) with many, many, many more!
