~He Loves Me~

Greg and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary on 3/1. I wanted to write this two days ago but you know how that goes. We have been so blessed in our marriage. I remember the Pastor that counseled us saying, "You think you love him now, but really, that love will grow and you will learn that there are so many levels to your love. You will love him more every day and the depth of what that love means will blow you away."

I have never known a statement to be more true. I did love Greg with all my heart even then. But as we have grown and shared our lives over the last 13 years I have learned a new appreciation for what that love really means.

There are days when I can't see past my imperfections. Days when the reflection in the mirror is less than desirable to me. But Greg sees nothing but beauty.

There are moments when I am less than fair. Greg takes those moments and blesses me with his ability to put me first.

There are times when we don't see eye to eye on things. These are the moments that Greg patiently "discusses" things with me until we have come to an understanding with each other.

There are times when I like to be the Princess. (Yes, even be watied on hand and foot) You probably don't believe me, but Greg does it! He is always doing those little things that he doesn't have to, but wants to, because he knows I love it!

Then there are those times when life throws me a curve ball. Times when I am weak and fragile. Those are the times when Greg tenderly holds me and weeps with me. Those are the times when my husband protects me as much as he can from the outside world. Those are the times when my husband prays for and with me.

This one I hate to admit. But, there are times when I am distracted from the life that God has placed in front of me. There are times when my vision is skewed by something in front of me. These are the times when Greg holds me accountable. He steers me gently around those obstacles and helps me see clearly again. (with God's help of course)

What a companion that God has blessed me with. God knew what He was doing far before I did. He chose for me the only man that could survive me and love me all at the same time.

Thank you Greg for choosing me. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for growing with me and never giving up. Thank you for everything that you are and will become in the future. I do love you more today than ever before and I know that love will only continue to grow deeper and more meaningful with every day that we are given.

I love you. Happy Anniversary.
