To my husband, on the event of his graduation

My love, four years ago, when you moved away to start graduate school, I thought that was the end of our relationship.  We were so perfect for each other and I wondered why God brought you into my life only to take you away a few months later.  How wrong I was!  Here we are, we've made it together to your graduation day.  When you started, I barely knew you, but I knew enough to know that I was blessed to have you in my life.  As you walk across that stage, ending this chapter of your life and starting a new one, I watch you with tears in my eyes.  But I'm not alone, our daughter shares this incredible day with us.  She won't remember it, but I'll never forget how proud I am seeing you in your cap and gown (and hood!) holding our baby daughter.  It wasn't easy, but you were able to get married, have a baby, and support your family while getting your Ph.D.  When society told you to wait for a wife and children until after your education was over, you listened to the Lord and embraced the gifts of family while still in school.  Sweetheart, I love you and I'm so very, very proud of you!
