A random day… A forever day….

A random day… A forever day….


The days before were hectic…. He had asked my hand weeks prior, and a smile was my “yes.” All the catalogs of what the big day could be, made my heart frantic… Frazzled and anxious the random morning turned into our forever day… We dressed, headed to a judge at the clerk’s office and said our vows to a dancing man who made our hearts giggle away the nervousness… The day two hearts became one, the day that started the book of our life together…


On that day, I loved him… Today, the love is even more real, even more a part of who I am… I see a man who has never questioned my need for more fabric, more time to sleep in, more help…. A man who is eager to spend time with his family, one who gives freely, and loves unconditionally… A man who has fought for his country, said goodbye to fallen friends, and come home a better man, simply by serving..... A man who encourages me to be creative, always tells me he loves my work, and listens intently when I sing... A man who still makes me buckle when we kiss, glows when he sees his children, and finds joy in the simple life... Most importantly, I see a man who puts God above all else.....He resembles the younger man I married, but today I see him as a selfless, God fearing leader who never ceases to make me laugh and can always find just the words to express his love for me…



3 children later, my love has grown…. The years of fathering, loving, learning, and trusting, have added age to a man who seems to only get better with time…. To more laughs, more triumphs, and many more years…. Happy Valentine’s Day Mike…. I love you!
