I LOVE THIS MAN!!
It’s always package day at the our house, so it was no big deal when I paused from talking to Captain America b/c Jeremy (my UPS guy…See, that’s how much I get packages) was at the door. I checked the name, saw it was for Captain America and sat it by the front door.
Came back to the laptop to let him know that he got a package. He wanted to know the particulars…is it a box? Who is it from? How big is it? After I gave him the rundown, he told me to open it. I said, "No, that’s ok. You can open it when you come home next week". So he tells me to OPEN IT. He’s curious to know what it is.
I open the box and see a bunch of filler paper– I pull it aside, and see a little wooden box that says Timeless Message. I go back and tell him. He wants me to open that too.
I open it, and I see a pretty heart shaped bottle, filled with rose petals and a scroll inside. The Terrica in me was initially thinking "Who in the HELL is sending him this?", and almost proceeded to take off my earrings and slather on the Vaseline and the tennis shoes…but I said, "No…calm down, black girl" and opened the scroll….
To my beautiful wife…
Every morning when I wake, I reach to feel the warmth from your side of the bed. It comforts my caring thoughts that are sitting in my mind like a dream, weaving our life together. These loving visions will forever dance in my heart, as I whisper to myself everyday “how did I get so lucky to share my life with someone amazing like you”.
The way you put our relationship first, and listen to my every need, brings never-ending happiness to the commitment we made to each other. The gentle touch of your humble eyes caress my soul and indulges the endless serenity that gives my life purpose.
I have chosen to dedicate myself to you, the sweet joy of my world, the one person who loves me as much as I love them.
Hear me whisper to you now, “I want to spend eternity sharing my life with you. I love you now and I will love you forever”
Your Husband, Captain America
Don’t you just heart him!? He’s sweet, makes beautiful babies and can put the smackdown in 2.5 seconds.
Thank you, Captain America. I love you too.
