The best day!
5 years ago, I married a man that I knew loved me but I really didn't know how much. I married a man that held me more times than he should have during our first year of marriage as I cried about my past and 'what if' moments. He held me and told me he was there, he loved me and that wouldn't change.
5 years ago, I married a man that when I hit rock bottom instead of pushing me to 'suck it up' and 'get over it' he crawled down with me and waited until I was ready. When that time came he held out his hand and took that first step with me.
"now that you're in my life, baby, I know exactly who I am"
5 years ago, I married a man that has been on the receiving end of 3 phone calls that no husband ever wants to hear. "Matt, something is wrong you need to come to the hospital now." He took those phone calls as well as any man could, rushed to my side and cried with me. But then, he straighten himself up and he became my rock. He held my hand, let me cry and scream and blame God.
5 years ago, I married a man of faith, but I did not know how much until those 3 phone calls. While I was pushing God away and blaming Him, Matt was down on his knees praying for God's presences in our lives, in my life and for me. He was putting me first and asking God to be with me, to watch over me and to love me. He was fiercely praying for our family like I was unable to do.
Our crazy human...wonder where he gets it!
Rivalries keep us together!
5 years! and a little George Strait to go along :)
5 years, 4 moves, 2 cats (we already had the dogs), one crazy human and thousands of memories later, I am more in love with him that I ever thought possible. Thank you Matt for the last 5 years and I can't wait to see what the next 5 bring. This journey called life is so much better with you by my side!
