I thought I would share with you this little writing of mine to my wife to say thank you for being such a wonderful mum and wife. I also think it's really important to reassure and support our partners, wives because they all do an amazing job, but they also often question themselves if they are good enough.
"Letter to my incredible wife
I was planning to write this since you’ve got pregnant which was a while ago - as our wonderful little girl is 8 months old already - but I just didn’t know how and where to start with the writing, because so many thoughts swirl in my head.
This is a letter to say thank you for being the most fabulous mum and wife to me.
Last year you made me the happiest man who I ever could be when we found out you are carrying our baby under your heart. You gave me the most wonderful and precious thing in the world, our daughter. I cannot find the words to describe my appreciation for everything you do to nurture and protect her since she was growing in your nourishing womb and for giving life to her.
I’ve loved you from the first moment we met, but since the birth of our daughter I look at you with very different eyes, I think you are the strongest and most amazing woman I’ve ever met. I love you even more than before and I have the utmost respect for you, who I chose to spend the rest of my life with. What you were able to put yourself through, your determination and pure focus despite the unbearable pain was incredible. Our little girl definitely has got the best mummy who she could have asked for. You are always there to soothe her and care for her, no matter if it’s night or day, despite the tiredness, you are nursing her even when it’s not exactly comfortable, and why, because of the unbreakable unity and bond that has been created between the two of you by the unconditional love from the very beginning.
I think you have the best, but also the hardest job in the world and I can tell you that you are doing amazing. I feel unspeakably lucky you are the mother of my child, because you are an extraordinary woman with a warm and loving heart.
So thank you for being with me. Love you forever!"
