Happy 1st Anniversary

My Dearest Gary Britt,

One year married and three months pregnant, what a year it has been, huh? Is it possible for time to past ever so slow and yet so fast at the same time? Sometimes I feel like just yesterday I was trying to finish that 30 page paper for Dr. Mueller's class, but talking to you on Myspace instead. I marvel that in less than two years we went from not know that each other existed to expecting a baby. At other times, I can hardly remember life without you. I can't imagine surving on ramon noodles anymore or not seeing your beautiful smiling face every morning. I simply can't imagine life without my best friend.

You are undoubtable the most giving and loving person I know. Though you like to pretend that you are gruff and tough, you don't seem to want me to do anything for myself. It's obvious that I will never learn how to blow dry my hair or have to get up to get anything, one of these days I'm going to be completely helpless and incapible. You are unselfish to a fault.

I don't think there has been a day in the last year in which I haven't found myself laughing at some silly thing you say or do, while learning yet something new about you. However, something never change, and they never cease to amaze me. From the time we first started talking on the phone you would pray before we got off at night, ever so late, and you are undoubtably the spiritual leader of this household. You pray every night, remind me to do our reading when I forget, and are constantly encouraging me to follow Christ in a better closer way by the way that you walk and the things you say when I am sad or worried.

I hope I never give you reason to regret marrying me or to disappoint you. I wish I had enough words to thank you for all you do and are, and I wish that everyone else could see the man that I see, but I hope it will suffice to say that I love you and I hope to spend the rest of my life with you.

~Your dani~
