I have to admit this isn’t much of a Marriage Monday post … it’s more of an “I love you with all of my being” post. This past wedding season has taught us a lot. But above all, it has taught me that you are something to be treasured. Despite the triumphs + hardships we’ve faced, you have been there for me with more grace than I deserve. It is so evident to me + those around us that you live to serve others. One of those others is me. I admit that 99% of the time I feel unworthy of your love, which leads me to act in ways I wish I wouldn’t. I wish it were easy for me to express how I feel, but it isn’t. Feelings are foreign. An “I want to wrap my arms around you as tight as I can with a huge smile + a kiss” can turn into a simple head nod. Or an “I love you SOOO much” can turn into a missed opportunity.
This weekend, when we had the chance to share with each other our hopes for our future, I felt alive. Alive in a way that I haven’t felt since our wedding day. I felt a renewed sense of hope. That someone out there in this infinite universe chose me. I want you to know that wherever this road takes us, you are that person for me. I forever choose you. This journey we are on is anything but certain, but that is okay because YOU, my darling, are certain. Through the ups + downs, laughter + tears, I have you. All I can hope is that I can be to you what you are to me. In a world of darkness, you are the brightest light. You are EVERYTHING to me.
With all my love,
