There simply are not enough words to describe how thankful I am for my sweet husband. This man was made for me, and I know God placed us on that cruise 11 years ago to find each other. Sure at the time, I was only 16 and didn’t know if we could actually make it work. But even then I knew he was something special. He made me feel alive, and comfortable, and so genuinely happy. So, here we are, after 11 years of friendship, 6 years of marriage, stronger than ever.
David truly brings out the best in me, every single day. He pushes me, has faith in me, supports me in every possible way, and makes me laugh, Every. Single. Day. What more could I ever ask for? Not to mention he is the single best dad I could ever have imagined to our sweet boy. Having kids destroys some marriages I think, but for us, it has made us a thousand times stronger, and I credit so much of that to David. He volunteered to stay home solo with Noah the week I went back to work. He washed my breast pump supplies every single night the whole year I breastfed, he never asks help on Noah’s schedule, he is always my shoulder to cry on when the stress of being a working mom gets to me, and he is my teammate as we tackle life threatening allergies. Seeing him being a dad is one of my greatest joys in life. And I cannot ever thank him enough for how helpful and supportive he is. He’s a gem.
Aside from being the best dad ever, he truly is just the best partner I could ever ask for. He is the one person who can help calm me down, or make me see things more rationally. He is my best friend, and the one person to make me laugh, even on my worst day. He thinks I’m more beautiful sans makeup (that’s reason enough to love the guy!), and he is always, always encouraging and uplifting. I am SO thankful he chose me to do this thing called life with. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for us.
So today, and every day I thank God for putting two crazy kids on a cruise to meet and fall head over heels in love. And for David for putting up with me all these years. I love you, honey!!!
