Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's day Maggie, the love of my life!!! Of course I have to mention my second valentine's sweetness Ruby too. Maggie I love you so much. Not a day goes by that I don't thank Heavenly Father for you in my life: wonderful wife, fabulous mother, and incredible at everything you do. Here is an original poem to mark this occasion:

Searching and searching and never quite finding
Is the story of my past that once was blinding
Professional bachelor with not even a clue
No understanding of a me and a you
Then in the autumn of school I searched for a date
Barely even a hope of finding a mate
Then what to my surprise comes down from the escalator
A super hot girl who almost said see you later
She gave me a chance and let me prove to her then
That I was more a five who thought himself a ten
Then through the months that followed we happened to see
A beautiful courtship growing tall like a tree
With roots that grew down into the deep
Of the heart of boy with a lot of reluctance
That fell in love with the girl with so very much substance
She had it all that could be and she never stopped
To amaze this poor boy, that the chains she had chopped
That kept him down from progressing through life
Being halted and grounded without a great wife
To be what his Heavenly Father knew he could
Becoming a husband and father like he felt he would
She worked on hard on this boy teaching him manners and such
Inspiring with sweetness she loved him so much
First seeking her Father's heart felt permission
They got sealed in the snow in the land of a mission
Starting Eternity together was a dream for this man
Who had no idea how this woman could plan
With the painting and sewing that was now to take place
He could see the real vision that came from her taste
He continued to grow and to change his demeanor
Shedding roughnes and smoothing to becoming much leaner
Chisled and ready for becoming a Father
He stepped up to plate and we had a daughter
The Gem of our lives with her love and her spunk
Ruby kisses and loves and dances with funk
With her eyes bright as stars and words like honey
She gives us a giggle knowing she's funny
Now we are working on more kids and expecting one more
Now one kid, soon two, and someday four
So I'm ending this poem with so much to say
About the girl who I love on this Valentine's day
Thank you so much for all you are to me
The bride of my soul for all Eternity

I love you baby!!! Hope this is better than some chocolates filled with pink and orange stuff.

Bobby, I don't know what Maggie thinks, but I think this is a whole lot better than chocolates - even Malley's, and that's saying a lot :)
