11 years ago I married my best friend. In the most non-traditional way possible, I one day wrapped my arms around your legs, looked up at you from the rock ledge at Lake Minnewaska, and asked you to marry me. I nearly choked on my words, but it burst out of me in the most sincere way from my whole body… from every cell. I knew you were my life mate.
How could I have ever imagined the things we’ve seen and lived together? We spent a long 7 years after marriage, just knowing and loving each other. Then one day our family grew and it was a miracle that changed us both profoundly.
With Julian, we are 3. ❤ In spite of wrapping himself all up in his cord, he soon made it to greet us, and from those deep brown eyes looking up from my arms, we found each other again, in the most masterful and perfect plan!
How could you have known the depth of the things you vowed to me that Wedding Day? Did you ever imagine you would be emptying surgical drainage bulbs, or holding me as I wretch every last bit of anesthesia from my body? You have picked me up from pieces and are holding me and loving me still through the ravages of chemo. You amaze me with the depth of your love and I am eternally grateful. Happy Anniversary my love. May we have so many more!
