Last night, my husband and I celebrated the anniversary of our engagement. This morning, tucked on the nightstand was a letter from him to me:
My Darling…My Wife:
Four years ago, I vividly remember waking up thinking, “Wow! I won’t have to sleep alone anymore. I will have my best friend with me every night before bed and every morning when I wake up. In looking back, I severely underestimated how fantastic being married to you would be. Life now has depth in the full sense of the word. You have gifted me with a new perspective, from the simple beauty of a cozy, rainy day by the fire, to a new way of looking at friendship, loyalty, faith, work and many more life experiences.
Because of our commitment to each other, we’ve had conversations that were hard to have, but were possible and necessary because of our vows. Thank you for saying “yes.” Thank you for not settling and for bringing YOU to the marriage. Your wisdom and heart for what is good add so much to who we are and who we are becoming as a family. I love you.
It really does affect everything when you commit to being a girlfriend for life. Since our new baby came, we’ve never loved or appreciated each other more. What a joyous journey marriage is!
