To My Valentine:
Words cannot express how much your support and love has meant to me over these challenging months. You took care of the family admirably and courageously while I was in the throes of my addiction, and when I hit bottom and returned to Earth and recovery, you were right there to support me and hug me.
I know I don’t often tell you, but I love you so much and always will. I could not do this – get sober and recover – without you. You are my rock.
I know I made the best decision of my life when I asked you to marry me. I’m sorry that at times I have not lived up to what you (and I) envisioned I would be. All I can do now is try my best to do the next right thing and be the best husband and father I can be. From there, everything can and will get a lot better. It already has in just a few short months.
I’m so looking forward to going away on vacation and creating new cherished memories for us and our family.
As Bob Marley once sang, “everything’s going to be alright…”
I love you,
