“To My Dearest Michelle, You are the sweetest wife any guy could ever have,” Jim Bob began. “You are beautiful inside and out. Words cannot fully express how deeply I love you!”
Jim Bob, 53, called Michelle, 52, his “best friend” and praised her for being a “great mother and grandmother” who is “sensitive to others.”
The dad of 19 also looked back on their hard times, including the death of Michelle's parents and his father, their daughter Josie’s premature birth, their 20th child miscarrying, and “counseling our kids through the teenage years.”
Jim Bob called Michelle the “greatest blessing” in his life and thanked her for “birthing all 19 of our kids.”
He also thanked his wife for “loving me in spite of the times I have wrong responses or wrong attitudes.” “You are a precious ruby,” he added.
Jim Bob finished by telling Michelle he was “looking forward to the next 35 years."
At the end of the letter, Jim Bob also included a series of throwback pics of him and Michelle, including an adorable one from when they were just dating. In one photo, Jim Bob sports a Canadian tuxedo as Michelle poses with a very pregnant belly.
