Thank you, husband

June 16, 2018

Dear husband, 

Thank you for loving me. Thank you for loving our son. When you talk about him, it melts my heart. I love the man you have become - the father and husband. 

I'll never forget those moments walking out of the hospital hand-in-hand. We were a team. We went through something indescribable, something we only shared. Together, we are making it through. 

I'll never forget waking up in a panic the next day after losing our son. You held me and just let me cry. Thank you for being there for me. Thank you for being so strong.

Sometimes you run away from uncomfortable situations, but there you stood so strong for me. Thank you. 

Through the most difficult pain a couple can endure - losing their child - we've become closer because of our son. I'm so grateful for that. 

Thank you for your patience as I've figured this grief thing, and especially for the moments I don't have it figured out. I know I'm not easy to live with sometimes, but you have taught me grace and tenderness. Thank you. 

Thank you for talking about Rowan with me. Thank you for missing him with me.Thank you for supporting me in my dreams and goals in honoring and remembering our son. 

Thank you for allowing me to be open and to share so much of our lives with the world. You never back down. You stand with me, united, together. Thank you. 

Even when it gets tough, you are there. I'm so grateful for that. I'm so grateful for you.

I love you. I love our family. I'm grateful we are forever. 

Happy Father's Day!
