Just wanted to share my lovely anniversary message

I have name changed for this because it is so personal, but I am on my own at the moment with no good mates (hopefully temporarily!) to have a chat to and wanted to share.


Have a read of the lovely message dh sent to me today for our wedding anniversary:

'It seems strange that already it is our 3rd anniversary when we seem to have spent very little time as Husband and Wife; it is almost as if we skipped that stage and went straight to being a Mum and Dad! With our determination to both try and have careers and raise a family, I know we do not have the time to spend with each other that I would like. We are so rushed, and often stressed, that the couple of hours we get in the evening (if we are lucky) we tend to spend just unwinding. Even with this, the time pressures and dds unerring ability to get ill whenever we are away, I want you to know that I have never been happier. Yes, it is not all flowers and chocolates, and life could certainly be easier at times, but I truly feel content. I love our family and am so proud of you and dd. You are an amazing wife and mother, although I know at times you don’t feel it, and the way you manage your work and home life is incredible. I know there will be many challenges ahead but I know we can face them if we are together.

So, in the end I just want to say that I love you.'

Ahh. He is lovely.

Aah, he sounds just like my DH.
What a beautiful thing to write, you sound like a wonderful family.
It's so lovely to read something like this on here. It's a pity we don't hear stories like this more often.

LilredWG...we are happy, although sometimes we conceal it with 'constructive debate' about whose turn it is to do stuff and when we can actually spend some time together. Despite that though, I think we respect each other a lot, and I know I am very happy to have got him! smile

That's lovely...happy anniversary, may you have many more happy years.

LilRedWG Wed 15-Oct-08 14:58:16

Have a lovely anniversary. We are very happy too, although sometimes you'd never believe it as I nag the poor man so much.

Unfortunately he is away (he has been for 2 out of 3 anniversaries so far!) but that is out of his control. We will celebrate in a few weeks when he returns.

that is so lovely and you are so lucky. I've just had my third wedding anniversary and although my DH loves me very much, he is not very good with words. Enjoy your belated celebrations

beats my dh hands down.

he called me his "sweat heart" once hmm

starryeyednamechanger Wed 15-Oct-08 19:30:31

LL, you guessed right smile

TheInvisibleManDidIt Wed 15-Oct-08 19:55:23

Aww, tears in my eyes.

I wouldn't name change for that either. Be happy and proud you have such an appreciative (sp?) loving husband who so totally obviously worships you.

Happy anniversary to you both smile

<<shoves lappy under dh's nose and hope he gets the hint for our anniversary at end of month>>
