Today, five years ago. I received a call from a friend asking me to see if I would be willing to pick up some people to go to church that Sunday. Little did he know that I was not only out of town, but I was in the middle of getting dressed… for my wedding.
An awkward pause came over the phone as he was not only surprised to know that I was dating someone back then, but moreover that I was getting married and he heard nothing about it(we were not that close, so don’t get shocked on that news).
So yeah, five years ago today Not only did I make the dumbest decision of my life(luv ya babe *singing “please forgive me” – inside joke), it was also the best decision of my life. not only did I marry my best friend, but I married someone would help carry me through the highs and lows of this tumultuous and yet exciting journey through what we call life. I’ve learned a lot about myself through her, and I see a lot of myself in her. I’ve been able to see the best and the worst of her, and through it all, not only do I still love her – it has grown many times over.
There are still many challenges, as we are just still newlyweds in the eyes of many. But we’ve had our share of battle wounds, which has brought us closer. It has made us just a bit wiser in how we handle life. Such knowledge I would have never gained, had it not been for the union we share. I am thankful for that.
So here’s to another five(multiply that by the number of gray hairs on my head, which currently stands at 30 something) years together. Love you, babe
