It took weeks to write this. Not because I can not think of a million wonderful things to say about you, but because writing it all out seem unfathomable. Just yesterday, you cleaned up after I finished preparing dinner. The other day you cleaned the bathroom, mobbed the floors, ran errands on your day off. You stayed up all night weeks ago while I was sick and vulnerable to attend to my every need and request.
You bring lunch to my work during my busiest days because you know how I am with work – I hardly stop to eat. And oh how you make me feel EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. You constantly remind me of how beautiful I am even when I feel miserable.
See, I told you! It is hard to put to words how much of a wonderful person you’re! For 2 years, you have diligently and joyfully done all these things and much more without any complaint -none at all.
Yeah, I know we’ve only been in this for 2 years. As many concur, that’s probably not enough years to brag about. In fact I stumbled on an article just the other day that predicted that most marriages chances of failing in the first 2 years is high and even highest at 5 years.
Contrary to popular beliefs and studies, I believe the strength of our marriage is not based on the number of years we spend together but most importantly on God’s GRACE, our mutual love and respect for each other. You see, God’s grace is a breath of fresh air. An undeserved favor given to us freely by a merciful God. After over a decade of being together, we’re indeed a living proof that HIS Grace wins every time! I have no doubt we will thrive because of the perfect example you set every day and even more so, now, as the head of our home. For we know whom we have believed and we are convinced that he is able to guard what we have entrusted in Him until that day. – 2 Timothy 1:12. With God’s help, we have broken barriers, we beat distance and we have conquered mountains that others said could not be climbed. Let me just say this, when you put God first in all you do, things end well. But also, your positive outlook on everything, BLOWS my mind completely! ——Everything looks great to you. Everything sounds great to you. Everyday is a great day for you. And you feel great everyday!
I cannot find reasons why you give so much; why you love so much; why you keep such great and positive attitude. I hope in the years to come, I feel half as great as you feel every morning. I may not share much about our relationship on social media (which we have actually come to know, less is more 😉) but know that I hold a part of you in my heart everywhere I am. Thank you for loving me. ALL OF ME!
So on our anniversary, this is my prayer for you as we get ready to work through year 3 together:
May the Lord guide and keep you
May His favor never leave you
May the good Lord lift you beyond measures
May you be an example to our sons & daughters
May your positive energy never go unnoticed
Be blessed, my love.
