A Note of Thanks | Personal Post | Sacrificial Love.

May 13, 2015

“The one who sacrifices most loves most”.

Words spoken by the priest of a wedding we recently shot that haven’t stopped circulating my brain.

Love: it’s a verb. It’s an act, a choice, + a commitment. We hear these things all the time. And I believe them to be totally true! When I said my vows to Caleb on our wedding day, I promised to put his needs above my own + to love him selflessly + eternally. However, when it comes down to it—to the day-to-day grind of life together—I am truly embarrassed to admit that I am far from living these things out. Marriage is NOT a game—it’s not who can love better? Who can serve better? Who is the “better” spouse? And I never have that feeling in our marriage! But let’s be honest for just a minute: when I take a step back + look at our marriage from an outsider’s perspective, Caleb loves most.

Because Caleb sacrifices most.

He is the one who makes our coffee every morning. The one to grab me my laptop charger from the other room while I’m editing away + the computer is about to die. The one to grab me a glass of water or a blanket when I ask for one. The one to grocery shop, vacuum, + clean the bathrooms (even though I know he really hates it)!! Day in + day out, this man makes small sacrifices that should not + will not go unnoticed. He is selfless, generous, + loving. And I want to publicly recognize all he does + thank him for his commitment to our friendship, marriage, + business.

Just because, babe. I love you.
