Six Years

In the past few months when I've told people that it's been nearly six years, their reaction is always the same....shocked that it's already been that long. I, on the other hand, am shocked that it hasn't been longer. I feel like you've been mine my whole life. I think that on some level, you have been. Made just for me.

I remember, once, laying with you with your arms wrapped tight around me. I told you, "This is all I ever want.".

With all my heart, I meant it.

Despite the fact that you hog the covers, drink all the sweet tea, snore like a bear, and leave the toilet seat up. ha,ha.

There is nothing like seeing you walk through the door, and scoop our little one up into your arms and pass out the kisses. I love that smile! It's ever present, each time the door opens. Without words, nothing but that smile, telling me that you couldn't be happier coming home to anyone else but us.

You mean the world to me. You make me feel safe and so, so loved. In just a little over seven years with you, my memory box runneth do the blessings.

I love you to the moon and back.

I've realized just how much love grows with each passing year, and as silly as it "sounds" I do love you more than I did six years ago. I've enjoyed growing older with you...gray hair and all. I look forward to gaining a full head of that gray along side you.

I can't imagine the world without you in it, my sweet love. Happy anniversary! xoxo

Relishing in His goodness...
