Four years ago in the middle of a beautiful field with heavy rain clouds over head I promised to be your best friend, to support you, be your biggest cheerleader and stand beside you forever. We've walked the last four years of life together- hand in hand and while it hasn't always been easy... I wouldn't trade a minute of it for the world.
Standing here today and looking back, I've gained a better picture of what love is. Love isn't just a four letter word, it goes beyond butterflies and giddy excitement. Sometimes love comes freely and sometimes it's a choice. Sometimes love means extending grace and forgiving when you're hurt. Love is a smile and a hug letting you know it's all going to be alright. Love is doing life together... facing the challenges and obstacles sometimes that life may bring and walking through them together.. hand in hand step by step. Love is compromise and living each day doing your best at putting the other first... even when you'd rather have your own way.
Thank you for walking through this journey of life with me. Thank you for supporting my crazy dreams, even when it means you'll go weeks without seeing me. For being there when I fall down to brush off the dirt and pick me back up. Most of all- thank you for loving me and helping me learn the real meaning of love.
