The Best Man I Ever Knew

When we married, I saw you as perfect,
The ideal husband and more;
I thought I knew all about you,
All the things to love and adore.

But when you became a father,
I saw new qualities to treasure.
You enrich all our lives in fresh ways;
As a dad, you bring so much pleasure.

Our child is forever blessed
To have a father like you,
And I love you more than ever,
You’re the best man I ever knew.

By Joanna Fuchs

I knew you were going to surpass my blogging level in no time. You are way too talented. Congrats on your award. Now you need to show your sister how to put it on her blog.

Precious. I recited this poem for Joey once, but I only got as far as "When we were married...."
The rest just didn't seem believable.
You have a wonderful husband, and a very, very cute baby. Even my mom said so and she has difficulty giving props to any child that is not her grandchild.
I love you.
