His heart is so big and beautiful. It's amazing. And the love he feels for me and Alfredo shows so clearly through everything he does. He makes me want to be a better person. I am truly blessed.

One of the blessings I love most about my Rich is his complete honesty. He values truth and honesty in a way I don't think most people do. Maybe the reason I love it so much is that it is not so easy for me. God Bless me, if I can think of an untruth, a little white lie, that will make everything tidy and easy, my first impulse is to use it. My Rich though never even tells white lies. He is as honest as the day is long. When he tells me something, from how I look in a dress to how much he loves me, I know I can believe it.

Rich just celebrated his 41st birthday on Saturday. Happy Birthday, Rich.  You are a blessing to me.

Dear Lord, Thank you for blessing the day that we met and giving me a heart that would welcome him. Thank you for guiding us together and for helping us to be extra tender with each other, especially when times were tough. You knew that he would help me be a better person. Please help us to live a life worthy of your promise. In your name, I pray. Amen.
