Love notes from Northwest Arkansas Moms

love letters

We recently asked moms to write love notes to the most important people in their lives.

We wanted to share a few of them today since Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. Love was sent to kids, husbands, friends, parents, fiancees, God and even the publishers of this website. One mom sent a love not to herself. Go, mama!

For your reading pleasure, love notes written by Northwest Arkansas moms:

‘And this is the choice,
made and kept, to choose you now and at each sunrise.’
To my love of 35 years

~Kathleen

I am so lucky to have so many loves in my life. I have a special someone I like spending time with, but right now it’s a circle of friends who fill me up and take care of me. And I love taking care of them, too. This past year wouldn’t have been livable if it hadn’t been for all of them.

~Angie

To my hubby,
I love you so much. Thank you for taking such good care of me while I’m moody, sleepy, and sicky while being pregnant! I love you!

~Chelsea

Anthony, you are such a blessing to me. You not only love me just as I am, you are an actively-engaged father to our four daughters. You are a true example of a loving leader, and I love you so much.

~Stacey

Happy valentine’s day to my husband- the best man in the world.
Also, can’t forget my daughter and parents- also the best daughter and parents ever!

~Carmen

I wouldn’t be the woman I am today without you. I wouldn’t be pursuing my dreams without you, nor succeeding at them. You make the days brighter, each passing year more exciting, and you’re always willing to try new things with me. Here’s to many more years of experimentation with my best friend, my lover, my husband. Love you, Destin!

~ Kim

To my wonderful husband, thank you for the 11 years that we’ve spent raising our beautiful family! It hasn’t always been easy and there have been many obstacles that we’ve had to endure, but our love has always stood strong and we’ve always found our way through. You are my rock and I will forever be the solid ground for you to stand upon.

~ Marie

Happy Valentine's Day!To my husband: who is supportive of my momma season and keeps me calm when the storms of our house arise! Thanks for the love!

~ Brandy

There are moments in your life when you see with certain clarity that everything happens for a reason….and that reason is you! Having close to a decade b/w the times we have spent together has made me appreciate you so much more. I am so incredibly proud of you not only as someone I love, not only as my boyfriend, but simply as a person. I know where we are at now was b/c you let your defenses down to open up and see where ‘we’ stood. That took courage and was against your better judgment but after all…I was the one that got away. This time, I won’t be taking my heart back, you can keep it. So this year, let’s not waste too much time on sweet love…it’s the friendship that lasts in a relationship. Love you B! Always and forever after, H

~ HB

Shout out to the 3 most amazing guys in my life…Anthony, Dixon and Chamberlain. I love being the only queen of our household and appreciate the love, affection and devotion we all have for each other. Can’t imagine a Valentine’s Day or any other day w/out them!

~ Brittney

What a FABULOUS Valentine gift this would be! Hugs & Kisses to my little lovies, their Daddy, and my fabulous amazing friends and family as well! <3 HAPPY HEART DAY, Mamas! XOXOX

~ Angie

I won’t try and quantify the different holders of my heart, so this is for my partner, best friend, husband, late night move watching, creative, powerful, beautiful, Darling.
Thank you, from the depths I my soul, for all you do. I look forward to each time we are together!

One of my favorite “love” quotes:
“Success in marriage and love is much more than finding the right person; it is a matter of being the right person.”

~ Amy

“Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast. It is not proud. It is not rude. It is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered. It keeps no record of wrong doing. It does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, trusts, hopes, perseveres.”
Corinthians 13

~ Amy

You each fill my heart with love in your own unique and wonderful way. I am thankful everyday for each moment I get to spend with you. And to your Daddy, my husband, I thank for these sweet little blessings that fill our days. I love the four of you with all my heart, always!

~ Stephanie

Troy, you are the love of my life. I can’t imagine being on this crazy, wonderful journey with anyone but you. You have my heart and my love. Love always, Me

~ Amy

I want to shout out about the amazing man God has put into my life. I have never experienced a love so deep for anyone before…I never want to be the cause of hurt in his life and I can’t imagine growing old without him. Love you so much MKS.

~ Rebecca

To my Valentine, my husband,
We have our ups and downs but in the end we truly love each other and want to be together! Thank you for being here for me and having the patience when I didn’t. Thank you for being the best dad to our 4 kiddos! I love you!

To my husband and best friend. I am so thankful that God brought us together and I get to do this crazy busy life with you. It may not always be the most romantic, but it is real and it is beautiful. Love you so much!

To my sweet baby buns.

You are the love of my life and I thank God for sending you to me. You have been the best hubby, dad and grand dad.

You are the best baby and you deserve the best.

hershey's kissesMy love note goes to my amazing husband. He works 2 full-time jobs in order for me to be able to stay home with our kids. Now that I’m surprisingly expecting baby #4, he has been taking care of me through morning sickness and fatigue, as well as helping out around the house even more than he was before. He is absolutely wonderful, an I couldn’t ever imagine a more perfect husband and father!

~ Sara

To the man who loves me in spite of myself…. the man who dotes on our son… the man who makes me want to be a better person… the man who stirs my heart like no other.

~ Christina

God, I am overwhelmed by your love and Grace. You knew me before I was born. You created such a blessed life for me on this earth. You surrounded me with loving parents and grandparents who created who I am today. You gave me a role model and playmate, the best big sister anybody could ask for. Wow! I cannot thank you enough for my precious and amazing husband. As you designed, he makes me laugh and thrills my heart. God, I love the way you love me. You have blessed me with two beautiful and caring daughters, who bring me joy daily. Thank you for sending me their birth mothers, who selflessly gave me the gift of life. Thank you for comfort, peace and hope. Your love never fails me!

~ Jerri

I am blessed!!! 30 years and counting, with a Godly husband who puts Jesus first.
I fall in love all over again, every time I hold his hand, hear his voice, look in his eyes…MY LOVE!!!

~ Kami

For my fiance: Thank you for being that perfect piece of the puzzle that completes my life. Thank you for being the brightest light of my life when everything else may seem dark and dreary. Thank you for your love.

~ Kaylin

How do you describe the perfect love? Well, he’s honest and kind, loving and giving. He lifts you up when you are down and does everything in his power to provide for his wife and kids. He follows Jesus and leads his family to Him each and every day. He cuddles and snuggles and giggles with the kids, and reminds them that they are wonderful just the way they are. He teaches us all how to love and be loved. He lives life according to God, and no other person can distract him from that. He is a man unlike any other I’ve met, and I’m so glad to call him mine!

~ Melissa

Happy Valentine”s Day , Mitchell. We’ve lost some very special family members in the past year, especially your mother on Christmas Day. Your daddy being sick recently and my mother being sick has been very difficult. Your birthday is February 6 and this gift would help us get away for a whole to recharge. Then we can get back to taking care of our family. You’re my Valentine”s gift from the Lord. I love you!

~ Brenda

A Happy Valentine’s Day wish to my husband who makes me coffee and breakfast each day and says he is “lucky to have a hott wife!” I am quite average, yet he makes me feel beautiful everyday. He is the love of my life. I am so happy I chose well and received this gift of such a wonderful man to spend my life with!

~ Sarah

To the most amazing husband…words cannot even truly begin to express the love that we share that continues to grow. Everyday I am blessed by your love. The longer we are together the more I see a true reflection of your heart in the way you love me and our family. I know my heart is forever safe with you, and for that…I am beyond thankful. We have been through quite a journey so far together. We have had amazing seasons, and seasons of serious trials. We always come through stronger thanks to your love and leadership. It’s a blessing to see that our kiddos not only know they are loved, but know they are protected through your guidance. Thank you for being such an amazing husband and father for our family. You are our world. I love you always and forever.

~ Amber

To my children, I am so very blessed to be the mother of three amazing children. Each one of you holds a special place in my heart and I could not imagine life without you. I know that being a single mom was not in our plan and it can be challenging at times, but everything I do is for you and to better your lives. I am thankful for Blaklie for stepping up and being the best big sister (2nd mama) to her younger siblings. Boston has stepped up to be the man of the house and is very protective. And little miss Sam, at the tender age of 2 keeps us on our toes everyday! You all feel my life with joy and happiness. Whether it’s been a long day at work or a tough night at school I am so thankful I have your beautiful faces to come home to each and every day. I love you all to the moon and back.
Love mom

valentines01To my wonderful, hard-working husband,

This year has been truly a year of ups and downs that have tried us more than most. I’m so blessed to say that those trials have only made our love stronger and greater. I look back on our almost 10 years of marriage, and just can’t believe that I’ve been lucky enough to have you by my side for all of those years. You are truly a man committed to his family, his job, and our Lord. Thank you for everything you do for me and our boys. We love you!

~ Stephanie

A love note to myself:
I know how hard you work at your job and at home. You are a fantastic mother and a generous wife. You deserve a bit of pampering.

~ Ruby

To my husband and my two handsome, big-hearted sons. We missed out on our original honeymoon get away for lack of funding, then enjoyed the next 20 or so years coaching, laughing with and entertaining the two sons God blessed us with. We have and are enjoying all the time we spend with our 3 beautiful granddaughters and that handsome and funny grandson of ours. But really-Mom/Grandma needs a honeymoon getaway. Keep this in mind guys if we don’t win this one. Love you all-Always

~ Diane

To my sweet husband,
Thank you for taking the time to be a good nurse to me while I’ve been ill this year. You’re bedside manner is perfect and you handled our 4 kids with ease. (and your dinners were yummy!) Thank you!!

~ Arrin

To my wonderful husband, he works hard to provide for our family. He puts my needs and wants first. He treats me like a Queen. He’s always been here for me through good and bad thick and thin, ups and downs. He’s the love of my life, I love him with all my heart, he makes my heart beat. The smile on my face, the sun on my skin. He’s my Valentine!

~ Ellen

Even after 27 years of marriage, you still melt my heart!

~ Karen

To my wonderful and amazing husband,
You came into my life when all was dark, but you gave me the light and I found my way. You have pushed me over the last 4 years to reach for my goals of becoming an RN and without your love and support I wouldn’t be able to say today that I am a nurse! The last 10 years have been a roller coaster ride but I wouldn’t want to ride this coaster called life with anyone but YOU! I love you babe :x!

~ Stephanie

To my amazing little boy,
You are truly my hero! You have been through more in the first year of your life than most people will go through their entire lifetime. I admire you and your fighting spirit. I am so thankful that God chose me to be your mommy. I love you more than words can say! What better day to celebrate those you love than February 14th….not only Valentine’s Day, but also Congenital Heart Defects Awareness Day! Mommy Loves You!

~ Andrea

Want to express my love for God who has given me the most wonderful other loves in my life, my husband and my daughter.

~ Sue

I have two loves…my daughter who makes my life so easy. She is just one of these easy going kids with a big heart. My next is my boyfriend…he supports me in my decisions and encourages me to always be myself. I love both very much!

~ Carrie

A shout out to the love of my life and soul mate! He’s the cheese to my macaroni and cheese.

~ Erika

My love note would be to my Mom, who passed away Valentine’s night in 1997. And it would simply say “I love you.”

~ Elizabeth

All my love to my three heartbeats = my husband + two kids. I am a very blessed wife and mom!

~ Leann

To my husband and my 2 boys, ya’ll are my true Valentines, I love the 3 of you more than I ever thought I could love someone else. I can’t wait to spend Valentines Day with you 3. But to be honest, if I win this package, I will check myself into the hotel alone and lay in bed in pajamas, watch tv and drink coffee for 24 quiet hours. I love you all, but momma needs a break before momma has a meltdown.

~ Rebecca

valentineWould be great to experience this with my hubby! He’s a hardworking guy that deserves to be taken away. Even if just for the night!

~ Caroline

and one last love note to us ….

Lots of love to the Mamas for all the SWEET giveaways!

~Jody

You’re welcome, Jody! And lots of love to each of you who posted a love note. We hope you have a happy Valentine’s Day!
