I can’t believe it has been 3 years since he so gently put a ring on my finger, I remember he was nervous I saw it in the way he pursed his lips trying to hide his tears, and his warm hand holding mine. As he put the ring on my finger he looked up at me and stared just long enough for me to feel the love in his heart burst out and hold me, without touching me I felt it instantly, as if a blanket of security wrapped so perfectly around every inch of me.
I can honestly say everything about us has become stronger and more solid. It is a beautiful thing to be able to look back at when I first met him 7 years ago.
All the memories, the many moments that I thought I was dreaming because I never knew a love like this existed. Moments when he kissed me and I felt butterflies, how he looked at me and my heart burst with happiness. Well he still gives me these moments everyday that I live, and there is not a moment that goes by that I am not eternity grateful for such a wonderful person, and a love so powerful it blows me away.
To be able to share this journey, the highs and the lows, the magic that is our children, and the beauty that is the everyday with him doesn’t only make me beyond happy it satisfies my most deepest desires.
No matter what we are going through, all the background stuff that exists in our very normal day to day lives I feel completely secure. He provides me with a security and sense of safety I have never managed to feel before in all of my life. So much so I can trust him and only him with my heart.
His unconditional love is worth more to me than anything I could have asked for. To sit now as I write this and think about him and all that he has given me, I see clearly how he has built me up to be who I am today, he has brought the best out in me as a person. He has brought me experiences I would never have encountered if it wasn’t for him, in so many different ways, physically, mentally and emotionally which makes me forever grateful for his existence here.
To me he is everything I could have asked for in a life partner and more, he has given me a love I only dreamed of finding as a little girl.
Here is to 3 years of marriage and to many more beautiful years ahead. Many years of happiness, of loving and doing this ‘life thing’ together.
