Life is an amazing adventure when you are able to journey through this existence with someone you love. The little things don’t ever matter and the big things all become little things. My wife and I do not always see eye to eye on things, in fact we are on opposite sides of the spectrum at times. We have discovered that most of the areas where we disagree really don’t matter anyway as most often they are political or social in nature and truly have no impact on our lives. I believe this is the way we have been able to build such a magnificent, loving and beautiful relationship over the years.
We have both experienced painful pasts where trust was violated and the journey back to being able to love and trust has been a difficult one for both of us. The honesty with which we communicate with each other, while not always easy has given each of us the ability to trust one another and in turn has allowed our love to grow.
The journey through life can be a challenge and sometimes painful experience. Understanding that we have each carried with us those heavy burdens also allows us to lift them from each other as we walk through this life hand in hand. While most of our goals and desires in life are the same, we share with one another the enjoyment of discovering the differences each of us bring. It is through our differences that we actually grow the closest, as we discover new things in life from each other, it also drives us to discover new things we can share.
Our life is perfect. We are different but equal. We share everything while enjoying things the other doesn’t. We explore this world together, parent together and dream together. There isn’t a single morning that passes when I don’t get to listen to my wife’s sometimes crazy dreams. We laugh together and we cry together.
The journey to find one another has been hard, filled with heartache and sorrow along the way. The darkest of nights have led us each to the brightest of days in our lives. The journey has been worth every step, and for this I am deeply grateful that we have been brought together.
My world is enriched, blessed and filled with love and wonder with you at my side, thank you my beloved wife for being the amazing woman you are and making a me a better man.
