In three short months my husband and I will celebrate 12 years of marriage. We have more happy moments than growing pains but without a doubt they are there. Over the years I am learning to savor all the moments that we get together whether they be good, bad or mundane. Life is to short so I know its important to appreciate our journey.
For a long time I thought that my husband and I met by chance. It wasn't until we had been married for a few years that I realized God created my husband just for me. He knows precisely how to handle my green, romantic, control freak nature. The only way anyone could possibly know how to love me in spite of it all is if God hardwired it into their DNA. And because of that It would be hard for anyone to convince me that we are not soulmates.
My husbands personality is nearly completely opposite of mine. So where I lack he has and abundance and where I have an abundance he sometimes lacks. One thing I admire the most about my husband is that he forgives easily. And when I say forgive I mean he actually doesn't hold a person's faults against them after he forgives. I've never been able to be like that. He's shown an incredible ability to forgive not just me for my antics but to forgive others that have hurt him a ton. That has been a struggle for me most of my life so I know that God used him to open my eyes to how easy it would be to become a forgiver with God's help.
I also love how hard he works and how he cared for me and those around him for so many years. He's always willing to put himself last even to help a friend. So right off the bat he is selfless and forgiving. He's giving all he could to take and our children and continues to work hard even when he's dirt tired to provide a life for us. There hasn't been anyone that I thought I could so easily give my life for but I know without a doubt I would give it up for my soulmate. He inspires me everyday to be more forgiving and I know God put him in my life to be an example of that. So to you my dear, I give all my love.
