Anniversary

7 Jan

Friday was the 6th anniversary of our first date.   I can still very clearly remember seeing him when I first entered the restaurant, and his sweet smile.  A smile I’d get to see every day for the rest of my life.  He literally “lit up” when I saw him, and I live for that smile to this day. It makes every day brighter, no matter how bad it is.  Actually, I think my goal is to make him laugh at least once a day. Even at our darkest moments, we always try to make the other smile. Because what good is being married unless there’s joy?

You should know that I love that man more than anything. More than anyone on this planet, and I live to make him happy. To see him in pain, or sad or frustrated – it practically splits me in half.  And the flip of that is, I know it’s the same way for him, too. 

He taught me to be selfless, to be responsible, to take credit in my accomplishments. He makes me feel beautiful and smart and sexy. He makes my life better for simply being in it.

Six years ago, walking into a bar to share a drink with a stranger, I had no idea that would be the tipping point. That my life would change from simply existing – to really, truly living. Because of him, and the blessing that he is, I am living every day with a heart full of love and a house full of joy. I know that he is the one person in this world I can count on for anything, who truly has my best interests at heart – and because of that I strive to do the same for him.

I don’t know if I can ever love him as much as he loves me – that man puts me first every single day.  And honestly, I don’t think I do that often enough for him. It’s a daily struggle for me to do that, because I am a spoiled bratt by nature. But I’m lucky, because he’s the most giving man I’ve ever met – that’s just who he is.

So you know how people say, “he/she made me a better person?” I can tell you that, without a doubt, meeting Robert six years ago put me on a path to not only be a better person, but to continue to strive to be the woman that is good enough for him.
