On our first date, almost seven years ago, you shared some of your meal with me. It was a sign of things to come: you've shared something with me, some part of your day or your life, ever since.
your laughs, your frowns, your ups and downs, your favorite tunes, your warmth, your tears
your love for silly things like old men dancing while they sing, and serious things like an honest exhoration
your love of cooking, polite happy children, kittens with big blue eyes, people who teach with smiles on their faces, parrots who say "I love you girrrrrrrl"
your diet pepsi!
your love... for me
When I woke up this morning, you laid there beside me wearing a sleepy smile. You shared that with me too, and now I'm wearing it.
You ask little in return. Just my love, my support, my friendship, my appreciation. You have them, all I have.
Our little "us" has changed some since the early days, but it's still there at the center of our lives. There's more love for God's Truth in there now, more respect and understanding for each other, more comfort with who we are together, more confidence.
You're the best thing that ever happened to me. I love sleeping next to you, and coming home to you, listening to you, talking to you and singing with you.
(Keep teaching me how not to be selfish, I have a lot to learn.)
We don't know how long our journey will be, but we know we'll be together to the end and this makes the bad times more bearable, and the good times even better.
I love you!
As of early this afternoon, Corinne and I will have been married for five years. Happy Anniversary!
There are no trackbacks.

More than the sum of my parts.
