Your son does.
In 19 years of marriage, your son has been a wonderful husband. He is also one of the best fathers I've been around. He works so hard, not just at his job, but at his business, and also at home. He truly takes care of us well.
I hope that he feels as loved by me as he has always made me feel.
What I want you to know is that I thank you for that. Sons don't raise themselves. Wonderful men don't happen by accident. You have done well by your children - all of us.
I will never forget that first vacation we took together to the beach. I got an ear infection, and in typical Drema fashion, you nursed me back to health. You played with my hair. You loved on me, and you haven't stopped. You just have a touch for fixing the broken things in this world. When most people give up, you breathe life back into things. I admire that.
I have learned to make your special green bowl chicken, your hard candy, and hamburger stuff - but I'd still rather sit at your table. Mine just never quite measures up. You are an amazing cook. Thank you for patiently teaching me some of your tricks. When we cook together, it always makes me feel more like a daughter than a daughter-in-law. That means a lot.
I love that you had all boys, because now you get excited to talk makeup and jewelry with us girls. My mom had all girls, so she gets excited to have Mike take out her trash for her. Thank you for raising a son that is not only good to me and our children, but good to my mommy.
For all the ways you have loved me through the last twenty years, I do sincerely thank you, and I love you.
