Brian’s Anniversary Love Letter to Jamie

jamie and brian love each other

 

 

Surprise message posted by Kendall Hoover.

Written by Brian Grumet

Life has a creative way of weaving itself around two people in love. I wasn’t able to choose my parents and I didn’t get to pick out my kids, but I was able to choose you. I knew the first time we kissed that my life had just begun. It was like being born again. My heart knew what I wanted and I wanted you for a lifetime.

I know for a woman to love a man takes more courage than anything in life. Your courage to love me has been the most rewarding aspect of our adventure together. That’s what I love about you; you’re fearless. You have given me your love and all I want in this world is to give you the happiness you deserve.

I know our journey has just begun and we have only dangled our feet in life, but it’s what I have chosen for myself.  To be by your side is the greatest award I could have ever received.

Remember: you are wonderful and I admire you.

Some who read this might say I’m overreacting and some might say I’m just plain lying, but all that matters is when I lay next to you in bed I wouldn’t mind starting my life over again-  to grow, to meet you and to fall in love with you and experience those moments one more time.

 

1 Corinthians 13:4-13

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. . . And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

    I honestly cried reading this. There is no greater gift than the public profession of unabiding love. Far better than anything store bought and I am thankful you chose to share this with all of us — especially those of us who were starting to lose hope that there were good men out there.

    Brilliant, Brian. I can think of no better way to describe love.

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, YOU TWO!
    May God be with you and bless you
    May you see your children’s children
    May you be poor in misfortunes and rich in Blessings
    May you know nothing but happiness
    from this day forward

    That must have been some kiss girl. Did you slip him some love potion because he is hooked on you. Congratulations you two love birds.

    You *are* wonderful — and fearless, and clearly Brian is, too, so you’re a perfect match! Is your anniversary today — 12-12? If so, I’ll always remember it now since it’s my birthday :-) Congrats and here’s to many, many more happy years together!
