To my one and only.

Dearest Lover,

I sat many times wanting to write words affirming my love to you. I wanted to post it just as I was going to work so as the house quieted after the boys were tucked in bed you would notice. About a week ago I found a quote perfect for my love letter. But the more I tried the more it seems the quote is enough....

I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.
Thomas Paine.

You are that man Mr. Paine speaks of. Thank you.
