Honestly, I cannot believe it's already been a year since we have been married. I guess the saying "Time flies by when you are having fun" is certainly true. We have been together for two years and it's been the absolute best two years of my life. Before I met Chad, I wasn't really sure if people really had a soulmate but I now KNOW that I HAVE found my soulmate. I have been made into a believer. He is my absolute best friend. He is everything that I have always pictured the perfect man to be. No, I'm not saying that he is PERFECT by any means because we are human, we all have our faults. But he is close enough. Besides my son, he is the most beautiful man inside and out. He is funny, smart, charming, caring, loving, compassionate, forgiving, goofy, silly....just simply WONDERFUL. One of my favorite things about him is his sense of humor. No one can bring me out of a funk from a bad day better than he can. He makes me laugh uncontrollably...silly crazy CRAZY laughing. and not many people can make me do that. i'm more of a quite laugher but not when it comes to my husband. He still makes me giddy and I still get butterflies in my belly when he calls or comes home. To me, that is 100% TRUE LOVE. I have experienced love before and what I thought was true love but now I realized that it wasn't really true love. It was just young puppy love. what chad and i have is true, honest, raw, complete. I fall more and more in love with him everyday. especially when i watch him and graham together. he is what every father should be. i have never in my life seen a daddy love his child like chad loves graham. it's breathtaking. and he is mine. all mine. forever. until the end of time. i'm loved and i'm blessed. God has been so good to us and I can't thank him enough.
Chad, thank you for showing me that all men aren't bad. I know that you will never raise a hand to hit me or will never get in your car to leave me. We have our bad days, our days when we are really getting on each others nerves but we have such great communication and we talk it out. even though sometimes i can be a pain in the butt and i'm stubborn and i don't want to admit when i am wrong and i just want to be mad. you are always there to put your arms around me to hold me. to make the anger wither away just from your touch. you are so patient and kind and gentle with me. because Lord knows, i can be a raging tornado when i am mad. you understand me, you know me. you know what to do to soothe me. thank you. i can't wait to spend 60+ years with you. I have no doubt that it will be just as much as wonderful if not more.
Happy One Year Wedding Anniversary.
I love you,
Steph
P.S. We got married on Friday, January 18, 2008 because the 18th is pretty special for us. Chad's birthday is December 18th, mine is June 18th, our first date was April 18th. It was just meant to be. Also, at one point Graham's due date was September 18th. :) Our lucky number is 18.
