I couldn't hold back the tears reflecting upon what had transpired over the last 9 years since that letter. I stared at him and he stared back at me, the bond couldn't have gotten any deeper. I thought about how God has blessed us, and with an abundance of gratitude I silently prayed for us to be able to tell these stories to our grandchildren one day. Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes you look at others, how easy things come to them and you wonder why it couldn't have been the same for you. Your wonder is not out of jealousy, but a shallow pondering of the who, what, where, how and whys of life. The realization is clear, true happiness lies in the hearts of those who worked the hardest to get there. Being content in this moment is what's most important. The struggles, the tears, the frustration, the petty bickering, all give you a deeper sense of appreciation of life and where we've been. I never want to lose such a humbling feeling ever.
I love this guy soo much even though he frustrates me beyond belief sometime. He is my Rock, my constant in an ever changing world. As I stared at him and smiled thankfully for him, I felt as though I was seeing him for the first time again. My lusty emotions mixed with our eyes locked on to one another. It was a surreal moment where even our souls knew we were made for one another. That's the true meaning of love; the stuff songs are about, novels are forged upon, and movies use to take on a life of their own. I love everything about him, it's an exhilarating feeling to be IN love with your best friend.
If you love someone, and are going through difficult times, don't let go, keep trying, eventually it will all work out and you'll have an amazing story of a life that wasn't handed to you on a silver platter, but a life that traveled through thorn bushes to get to the bed of roses.
"When you love someone all your saved up wishes start coming true because being in love is what makes working all week bearable. As long as we are persistent in our pursuit of our deepest destiny, we will continue to grow." -MizzMichelle S.
