When Ainsley Fermin thinks back to all the decisions he has made in life, there is one thing he would never change, and that is falling in love with his wife Jonna.
From the moment he first started dating her, he knew there was something different. He knew that she was someone who was special and who would always hold a special place in his heart, and he was more than right about that.
“Jo is the love of my life,” Ainsley said. “From the very first moment I saw her take a seat in our grade 10 French class, I knew I was in love. Jonna is my queen and my best friend. I’m the luckiest man on earth to wake up next to her. She’s my rock during tough times. She’s always there for me, even when I’m a giant pain in the neck. I can’t imagine my life without her.”
Jonna has made Ainsley’s life infinitely better from the day she walked into it, and so much of that has to do with her personality. She is always there for Ainsley, but on top of that she is always there for their daughters and everyone else all around her.
“Jo is the type of person people unknowingly gravitate to,” Ainsley said. “Her warm smile lights up a room. Jo is a loyal friend and always finds the good in people, even when it is super hard to find.”
Jonna is a great person to talk to, as she has a genuine ear to hear what people have to say and help them out. She would certainly do anything for anybody, but her selflessness does not take precedence over her family.
Jonna’s daughters come before everything and everyone, and Ainsley has always admired this about his wife.
“We have two beautiful girls, Maliyah and Laila,” he said. “Jonna is a very loving and caring mother. The girls love their mother more than anything else in the world. Jo celebrates every little milestone, from their first steps to their first loose tooth.”
Jonna cherishes every moment she gets to spend with her girls, and she is proud of everything they have achieved and she will continue to support them throughout their lives. She cares so much about Maliyah and Laila, and those girls are certainly going to grow to appreciate their mama.
“Jo takes motherhood seriously,” Ainsley went on. “She is a big time mama bear. No one messes with her cubs. Jo’s the best example of a working mother for our girls.”
You can say and do what you want in a general sense, but if you ever think about coming after her girls, Jonna is going to create an unpleasant experience for you. She would do anything for those girls, and she would certainly do anything to protect those girls.
Jonna also spends so much time instilling many great life lessons into her girls, including how to be strong, independent women. She is a great role model for them as well, as she shows them how to live their best lives by being a great example for them.
At the same time, her husband learns so many great things from her too, as she is constantly elevating him to be a better version of himself.
“Patience is probably the biggest thing I’ve learnt from Jo,” Ainsley said. “She has a way about her, almost a sixth sense, to wait things out. She never forces the issue. Things always seem to work out for Jo from school to her professional life.”
One example of this is after Jonna was wrongfully terminated from her previous job after having Maliyah. Instead of getting lawyers involved and suing the company, she focused on what was best for her family at the time. What she felt was best was finding a job, and she only had to interview for one position in order to get a job to help her continue her successful career.
All of this was made possible by her patience and determination to do what is best for her family, and Ainsley is still in awe of how she handled that situation to this day.
Jonna just cares so much about her family, and spending time with them and making time for her husband is something that will always be important to her.
She is also someone that everyone gets along with. She has a great sense of humour, even though most people might not find her funny for the same reasons she finds herself funny. She can light up any room with her smile, and she is someone who just enjoys life to the fullest.
“Jo’s the type of person who thinks she’s extremely witty and funny but isn’t either one of those things, which is the funniest thing about her,” Ainsley said. “She loves a good laugh, but at the same time she’s a sensitive person.”
At the end of the day, Jonna is someone who is going to have a good time, but she is also going to show people genuineness. If someone is in need, Jonna will be there for them to make sure they have everything they need to get them through whatever it is they are going through.
Ainsley runs out of words to describe his wife, because he is in constant admiration of who she is and the fact that he married up, and he is so grateful he gets to call her his wife.
“There isn’t anything I don’t love about Jo,” he said. “From her crooked toes to her wavy red hair. The fact she thinks she’s hilarious and isn’t kills me. I love her laugh. I love her smile. I love her strength and fearless attitude. I love her greyish blue eyes. I love how they light up when she laughs. Jo makes me a better person and I owe her so much for that.”
Life with Jonna is great, and Ainsley says it is a privilege and an honour to be married to such a wonderful soul. She is beautiful both inside and out, and he is glad he has her in his corner.
“Jo’s an amazing person,” Ainsley said. “She’s the best kind of person; the type of person you want on your team. There are few like her out there, and I appreciate her and how she’s changed my life forever.”
Jonna is one-of-a-kind and Ainsley wants her to know that he does not take her for granted. He counts his blessings every night because he knows how lucky he is to be her husband, and he is glad his girls have such a wonderful mother.
“Jonna, I appreciate you. I don’t always show it, and when I do it doesn’t seem to be enough. I love you. Happy birthday!” – Ainsley
