In honor and celebration of the 13th Anniversary of the day we first said "I Do", I write these words that I said then, meant, and still do:
I ask you, Jeffrey to be my partner for life.
I promise to always be here for you
To remain by your side
When things are good
And when things are bad.
I promise to always listen to you
And value your thoughts and feelings.
I promise to try to bring light to your darkness
And when I can’t, to hold your hand
And stay with you until it fades.
I promise to comfort you,
Nurture and support you,
To show you gentleness and generosity
And to give you room for personal growth.
I promise to encourage you to follow your dreams
And to support you if the road to those dreams gets rough
I promise to do all I can to keep anger from our life,
To never cause you pain,
To always be honest with you,
And to admit when I am wrong.
I promise to share with you
Those things most sacred to me:
My family, my friends,
My trust, my tomorrows
And most importantly, my love.
