Today is our anniversary. Our wedding anniversary. When him and I met I had no intentions of ever getting married. My parents have been married and divorced so many times they diluted the meaning of marriage. Neither one of us is religious so that wasn't a reason either. To me it was just a piece of paper. I always felt like I didn't need a piece of paper to say how much I loved him. For me, that little piece of paper didn't mean anything until it was time to divorce, and then it meant everything. He didn't think like that.
He loved me anyway, he stayed with me anyway. He would make comments about getting married but I always came up with a reason why we shouldn't. That didn't mean that I didn't love him or that I didn't plan on being with him forever, I just didn't think that little piece of paper was that important.
He is that certain kind of person that can love my crazy. He is the only one that has ever been able to deal with me and do it so well. I think I'm hard to love. I always tell him that but he never agrees. He makes loving me seem so easy, it's just what he does.
I never knew how much I could love someone (other than my boys) until he came into my life. He owns my heart, my body, my mind and my soul. And now that we are doing TTWD it has become even deeper. We are still really new at this, but I have never felt as close to him as I have since starting this journey.
It's not our first year but he is my best friend. That's how we started out...as best friends. We were both in relationships with other people. We would tell each other everything, share our secrets....and then it happened! I tripped and fell in love. It was never planned, it wasn't something I wanted. But he stole my heart and has kept it safe for almost 20 years.
We have been married for 14 years. We haven't always had the best relationship, we've had our ups and downs, trials and tribulations but I am proud to say that we have never been to the point that we have talked separation, EVER! We have had some really rough times but we have always pulled together and pulled through. We have friends that are always telling us "I wish I could find happiness like you guys". We just smile at each other and shrug our shoulders, it's just us!
To my Husband, thank you for picking me. You have always loved me like every day is our anniversary. You have always treated me like I'm your queen. I appreciate you and glad that I get to spend my life with you.
