To My Alan Paul

by Hotshot

As I sit down to write this letter, tears fill my eyes because I know that words won't be able to express how grateful I am for you! You have put up with me for the last ten years and showed nothing but sincere love and faithfulness. When the news about my surgery came up, you kept me calm and focused and helped me ask all the right questions. You listened while I talked too much about other people's experiences and helped me plan for my recovery time which we both knew would be challenging!

Thank-you for working so hard to support this family!
Thank-you for taking a whole week off from work to be with me!
Thank-you for listening to me talk too much about female body parts!
Thank-you for telling my I look beautiful when I wake up in the morning!
Thank-you for telling me I looked beautiful after my surgery!
Thank-you for being able to lie like that with a straight face!
(Don't ever stop!!)
Thank-you for working on the old house!
Thank-you for doing the dishes!
Thank-you for waiting on me, hand and foot and calling me "Princess!"
Thank-you for making "angry eyebrows!"
Thank-you for making me laugh til it hurts!
Thank-you for not trading me in for two 20's!
Thank-you for waiting for three hours while I was in recovery!
Thank-you for putting my clothes in the drawer at the hospital!
Thank-you for telling me the hospital undies looked sexy!
Thank-you for hugging me gently!
Thank-you for offering to beat up the mean nurse!
Thank-you for kissing the cat!
Thank-you for helping me sort out all these meds! Yikes!
Thank-you for calling me Lucy!

I could go on and on and on, but I think you're getting the idea. I could not have gotten through this without you and like you've always said, "It's you and me against the world!" I love you more than the morning sunshine and I'll be here for the renewal at the end of our 50-year contract!
