Dear Angel,

by Khalia

If someone had told me I'd be blessed with the most wonderful, attentative, and understanding man...I would have called them a "liar". But, there you are. Right here with me through all these years of fighting this ailment and that one, through every major surgery and never leaving my bedside, and through all of the emotional ups and downs that would have had most men running for the hills or at least begging God to give me laryngitis!

You've always been there for me, even when I didn't "want" you to be. You've never been out of arms reach when I needed help or out of ear's range when I called.

The past three years have been extremely trying for us both, and I want you to know that I know it's been hard on you both mentally AND physically for me to be "down" so much. You've chased the boy, taken care of his needs AND mine, you've done things for me when I couldn't do them myself...but, most haven't given up on me.

I will be eternally greatful for everything you have done, are doing, and will do in the future...

And now that we are facing another surgery...I have to be honest...I'm scared to death. With the talks of Cancer that we lightly step around since it's such a difficult subject for both of us considering, especially, my family's past with it and with the little voice inside my head making me worry about having a "repeat" of my last surgery.

But, the only thing that keeps me going is knowing that you will always be there for me, doing what you need to to make sure I am well taken care of. I know you will always be there for me in any way you can. You are my love, my life, my heart, my ARE my Angel.

Yours for Eternity, In life and in the After-life,
Your ever loving wife,
