What can I say about this man? No words can express how much I love him, or how in love with him I am. He is my soul mate, my best friend, and the love of my life. He is my hero, my confidant, and my partner-in-crime. He is my own personal comedian, my 24-7 eye candy, and the keeper of my heart.
Which he always protects.
I often find myself wondering what I’ve done to deserve someone so loving and selfless. I can’t help but think of Maria and Captain Von Trapp singing to each other in the Sound of Music… cheesy I know, but Rogers and Hammerstein might as well have stolen the words straight from my heart.
For here you are, standing there loving me. Whether or not you should. So somewhere in my youth or childhood, I must have done something good.
Our lovely neighbor, Linda, lost her sweet husband, Charlie, this past week. My heart broke when I heard the news, and I couldn’t help but cry for her- knowing how lost I would be without Michael here to hold my hand, to kiss me goodnight, to console me, and make me smile.
As we celebrate Charlie’s life, what a powerful reminder for us- to cherish each day, and hold on tightly. That we can never say I love you enough. And to be thankful, for the gift of love that God has given us.
Happy Anniversary, my love. Six years later and you still give me butterflies. I treasure you, heart and soul.
