The Holidays bring out a certain nostalgia, of course, don’t we all feel it at some point? Friends on instagram and twitter have been sharing daily thankful thoughts this month and I wish I was doing the same. Stopping this morning to think about what I’m thankful for translated into this, I’m afraid, very sentimental, impromptu post. I give you fair warning….
When we were first married I would hear stories from more seasoned couples, those who were married maybe 5 or more years. Some would talk of how your love grows for the other, how it transforms and builds every passing day. How could I be in love more with Adam (The Hubby) than I was at that moment? We spent years dating, intertwined our lives so tightly, wrote wedding vows and exchanged them – how could I show or feel love more, I wondered? I simply couldn’t imagine it.
But here I am, nearly 13 years later and I’m humbled by this man I call The Hubby. He has become someone I not only love and admire but someone I look up to. Not in a old-school, “the husband knows best” sort of way though….Adam inspires me, to be kinder, more generous, more understanding…every day without fail. I couldn’t have dreamed the life we built together. I couldn’t ask for anything more. I couldn’t imagine the person I would be without having known or felt his kindness. So grateful today…so grateful for today. XO
