It was 15 years ago today that I married the man of my dreams. One year after we began dating. We were both 19 years old. On that day, I really couldn't even imagine what 15 years would do to/for us. It seemed so far off. But wow, it's here, and I'm amazed. And I am more in love with this man now than the day I married him.
He is my very best friend. I honestly can not imagine my life without him right by my side. He is much to big a part of me. Sure, I could stand on my own, but I just wouldn't want to. When we married, we became one, and it would be like part of me were missing if I didn't have him right here. Not to mention, life wouldn't be nearly as fun. He makes me laugh and he laughs
15 years - we've been through a lot. The good, the bad and the ugly. And even some beautiful. We've laughed with joy and cried with sorrow. Birth and growth, death and loss. There has been plenty of both. And I believe it has all made us stronger. I am so thankful he has been by my side through it all.
I prayed for specific things I wanted in the man I would marry. God definitely grants us the desires of our hearts, because even those things that may seem so insignificant to some, but important to me - I got in him. And much, much more.
He is loving, patient, kind, tenderhearted, caring, gentle, strong, passionate, giving, adoring, supportive, encouraging, honest, funny, hardworking and downright amazing.
And he is the most amazing father. He loves our kids with all his heart.
And he loves every little part of me. He has taught me so much, and built me up. He has had a HUGE part in making me the person I am today.
Of course he's not perfect, but he's perfect for me. And of course our marriage hasn't been all rainbows and roses, but we have had a wonderful marriage. And those trials have helped make us even closer.
I am so very BLESSED to be called his wife.
Honey, I love you with all my heart! Thank you for giving me the best 15 (16 counting the one we dated) years of my life! I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you! Thank you for loving me! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!
