This is where my heart lives. my whole entire heart.
I sat thinking today about the pastor speaking at our wedding, three years ago today, saying that in all the times he had meet with us in the many times in the weeks before that he noticed the fact that after over 3.5 years of dating both of our eyes still would light up when the other one entered the room.
And the time we were at the fall holiday gathering at Priscilla’s home, where she came and sat next to us and said “even if I saw one of you in Africa and the other one in China, I would say “those two people belong together.””
Or the many times we’ve had friends single and married alike tell us that they want what we have.
I know that we’re lucky.
That I’m lucky.
That is something I’ve always known.
We talk a lot about how there are a lot of people that will never fully understand how much we love one another, the love that we feel for one another, because there aren’t words for it.
It’s the simple fact that our hearts are made of the same thing. And in the recent couple of years we have learned that more than ever and it’s the little things like the way we just “know” just by looking at the other person. We know each other’s thoughts, each other’s moods, without even saying a word.
We are blessed beyond what we ever imagined with this love and marriage that we have.
Genuinely and totally blessed.
Then I looked down at our sweet girl as I continued to rock her and thought how blessed we are in this life and that our over abundance of love created this perfect, tiny human in my arms made up of the best parts of you and the best parts of me, and the love in my heart cannot be touched.
Here we are three years after we walked down the aisle, more blessed than we ever imagined on that day, with more love than we ever fathomed and this beautiful little girl and this beautiful little life of ours.
Just thinking about the next twenty years, the next forty, the next sixty and more – my heart swells with even more love and excitement because I’m so in love with you and this life we have together.
It’s perfect. It’s ours.
Happy Anniversary to you my love.
My husband, my best friend, my soul mate, the love of my life.
