…makes us stronger.
Today we celebrate 16 years.
I can honestly say it has not always been easy.
It has certainly been filled with more ups and downs than I care to recount,
days that I wasn’t even sure I wanted to be married.
but the one constant was that I loved you,
through good and bad.
My vows mean the same to me today as they did 16 years ago.
Those words, spoken from my heart, with my faith, have led me when my rational mind would’ve otherwise given up on us.
Our life, the good and the bad, have taken us to places I never imagined; some places I would love to forget and others places I’ll treasure my whole life.
While the past two years have been a struggle at times, it has also been a blessing in disguise.
It has forced me to look at our love, our relationship, in a different way and take nothing for granted.
As each day passes, every hour, each fragile moment, I realize how perfectly imperfect it has all been.
And I’m reminded just how fragile love can be if we do take it for granted.
Happy Anniversary, Russ,
my perfectly imperfect husband
