15 years

15 years ago today John and I promised to love and take care of one another for the rest of our lives. I am happy to say that I would eagerly do it again today. I love John. I can not imagine a life without him. Even with our differences we still fit together..... perfectly. I am sure there are days when he would rather be living with someone a bit neater or more organized. I know I frustrate him when I leave drawers open and things out on the bathroom counter top. I am sure I have plenty of flaws that he tries hard to overlook to see the best in me. The same goes for me. I sometimes wish he could let go more often - spend more time with the family - but I am sure that is hard to do when you are such a provider. Our marriage is not perfect perhaps to the outsider who gets a glimpse of our arguments but our marriage is perfect to me. It works. At the end of the day I am happy to be next to him. We are able to be ourselves. We are able to vent and laugh and talk and just be still together. God made this match - it was no accident. I hope 15 years down the line I can write this again. I have not doubt that I will. I love you John. Thank you for making me your wife. Thank you for being the best husband.
