Happy Valentine's Day, Sweetie!

6/22/96


Dear Kyle,

When we first met, I was attracted to you. When we married, I was in love with you. Now, I depend on you. Kyle, you are my rock. Even at the time I decided I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you, I didn't realize how perfect you were for me. You complement me so well (and compliment me so much!)
You have excellent communication skills, where I lack tact. You are patient in areas where I am easily frustrated. You are calm when I am panicked. You are a great listener and problem solver, with the discernment to know which I really need!You are such a blessing to me.
It amazes me that you had the tenacity and patience to be my cheerleader and back massager for hours and hours during labor with our girls. I will always believe that you had the harder job. As a father, you have shown yourself to be loving, generous, and selfless. I look up to you, Kyle, for all the Christ-like qualities that you possess and I desire. In you, I see the amazing love the Father has for me. I love you. . .

More than you will ever know,

Ginger

That's soooo sweet! Did you scan those pictures in? I might have to try that. Happy Valentines Day!

Ginger said...

Yes, I scanned them. In fact, you can still see a bit of the scrapbook page on that engagement pic. I guess I didn't crop it enough! ha

Kyle said...

Wow, thank you so much sweetie. That was awesome. It's been almost 12 years and I can't wait to see what God has in store for us. Whatever it is, I know you'll be by my side. What a great supporter you are. I love you very much.

LOL I was wondering what your original color was since your sister "tattled" on you with her poem. :) Now I know!

Ginger said...

LOL! Actually that was haircolor too!! Just not red.
I vaguely remember having medium brown hair once upon a time. . .

Ginger, you really described your relationship with Kyle to a tee. And those would be all the reasons why I LOVE HIM so much, too!! God blessed us all when He gave us Kyle. What an amazing, amazing man - I admire him tremendously.
With much love from your mom-in-law,
Nancy

Ah, what a beautiful couple! I must say that looking at Kyle and Isaac, they sure do look like; call me crazy but I think they do. And I think you are a fabulous red head!

Ginger,
Some women, like you, are adorable pregnant. I on the other hand look like a moose. Your tribute to Kyle was nice.
