10 years...



No one told me that after 10 years of marriage I would love you even more.

I didn't know I would still find myself breathless when you kiss me and weak when you touch me.

I didn't know that the tears we cried together would only make us closer.

I never knew that having a child would strengthen us as a team.

I didn't expect for you to make me feel so beautiful when my baby belly meant I couldn't see my feet.

I had not heard that marriage would bring so much laughter into my life.

I didn't know that you would be the one to show me what faithful meant.

You have surprised me with how much you have given to our marriage - how hard you have worked to be a husband and father.

I haven't forgotten the excitement I felt ten years ago as I became your wife. I haven't forgotten because I feel that same joy when we part in the mornings and when you come home in the evenings.

You truly are my best friend. My handsome lover. My safe place.

I love you more than I ever thought I was capable of loving and feel more loved by you than I thought was humanly possible.

Thank you Norse for making me your wife. I can't wait to see what the next decade brings as we walk this path together.

I love you.

  2. If God should ever have me marry, I pray that I would be able to write these very words. They move me to tears and I feel as I have glimpsed the divine.
