Happy Anniversary.....My Love!
It's August 8, 2005......the house is quiet, it' still early......and the In-Laws left for home yesterday morning. It really was an enjoyable visit with them this time.....who knows maybe we have finally grown on one another! lol
Today is my 15th Wedding Anniversary, 15 years and he is still my biggest crush........Sometimes when he's not looking, I still study him......I love the many looks of my husbands face. He is still every bit of handsome at 46 as he was 24 years ago, when I saw him for the first time and thought how very beautiful he was. I knew that someday we would forever be in each others lives.......I knew because my heart told me.
Gray hair has replaced the once soft black hair on his chest, that I used to play with for hours.....I love the feel of him.....and gray has moved further into his hair then just his temples....... but his eye's are still the most beautiful shade of green and they sparkle still, when he looks at me. I love to watch him sleep, there is something so very manly about him, the curve of his broad, suntanned shoulders, the rise and fall of his chest with each slumbered breath. I love the very scent of him.....I breath him in deeply while he sleeps.
I woke up to find my "hallmark" on my desk...he knows my morning ritual well, he says he always feels bad that he can't express how he feels about me better than a Hallmark.....it's just not in his DNA, but every once in awhile he says the most perfect things to me at the most perfect time and I store those moments away, when things aren't so perfect for a moment. The moon and the stars are my constant nightly reminder of what that man once said to me, when we first married and things were tight with a new family of four........He said," At this moment I can't give to you the moon and the stars even though I want to give you everything.....all I have is my love, my heart and myself to give and I hope that it will always be enough!".... He has always been enough....more than enough and I'm a very lucky woman!
It was love at first sight when I was 18 years old, but our worlds weren't destined to collide again until I was 23, we married a few years after that when I was 27.... and today at 42.......He still gives me "Butterflies."
Life is good and I am very blessed.........Happy Anniversary Darling!
