Dearest Family of the man I love,
I need to take the time to thank you beyond words for the way you have raised your son to love me. He shows me nothing but love and affection, with the occasional moments of bugging me. You already know this, but you have raised the most passionate, hard working, dedicated, loving, respectful man I have ever had the pleasure to know. I truly do not deserve him.
I have been raised to find someone who truly loves me for me, supports me through everything, and treats me with the utmost respect. I have found that in your son.
To the woman who gave birth to and raised the man I love, thank you. I know he has been a very hard child to raise. He is very stubborn but well grounded with strong opinions that he will defend to the death. He may get on my nerves at times, but he is the greatest thing to ever happen to me.
To the man who taught my boyfriend the importance of hard work and dedication, thank you. Without you, your son would not be so passionate about the sport that holds his heart. I am deeply grateful for that trait in him because he has shown me that he loves me more than that sport.
Also, I need to thank the two of you together, for showing him how to love me. Without his vision of your love, he wouldn't have formed his idea of true love.
To the brother that taught my love to be tough, thank you. I know I can be very demanding, annoying and hard to love, but you toughened him up so that he can take whatever I throw at him.
I must add a thank you to you, for truly loving me and calling me your sister. You make me feel like I really deserve to be with your brother, and a part of your family, even though I don't think I really do deserve him, or any of you.
Thank you all for accepting me into your family, letting me go on family trips with you, and bonding with me in the tiny car together on our way to Mt. Rainer. I have been truly blessed to have you in my life.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Much love always,
