Then I met S. And my world was forever changed. He wasn't exactly what I was looking for in a man, but as I reflect, he met every single item on my "want/need in a husband" list. It doesn't matter to me that he's not Hollywood gorgeous, because I didn't need someone like that. He's tall, intelligent, has a committed relationship with Christ, a cuddle bug, um...did I mention he's tall? Anyway, he's everything I needed, and when we butt heads (which isn't often, but does happen b/c we were both single for so long before we met) I am always thankful that his personality complements mine (as in he's NOT a hothead like me)
He doesn't always do things the way I'd like, and I KNOW that I'm not the prettiest crayon in the box, but he always treats me like a princess, and I am SOOOOOO blessed to have him as a spouse.
Infertility and miscarriage can often rob that joy from your relationship, and I'm thankful that he has let me grieve in my own way, but always puts forth that hope that I'm not broken forever. It is rare to have someone who has that much faith in you, and I want to make sure that I cherish that love closely and keep it with me always.
He is sometimes slightly clueless when it comes to gifts, but not today--here's why I love him more and more each day:
He absolutely melted my heart with this letter!
A dozen roses! AND he PLANNED this in ADVANCE!!
Greyson thought that he should check out the new kid in the house...he's never seen me swoon before and was worried that these might remove him from favorite status with me!
