I love him, I love him, I love him....and where he goes I'll follow, I'll follow, I'll follow...

Yesterday was about the reasons I fell in love with my man.
But today, is about why I still love him to this day.
I love him...
For the way he loves me. The real me. He knows me inside and out. He knows my faults, my icks, my yucks...and he still thinks I'm the most incredible woman he's ever known.
For teaching me that love is not giving up. That real love means hanging in there and always being willing to grow and change.
For holding my hair each and every time I've ever thrown up. And for knowing that I need water immediately after.
For moving past his family demons and allowing God to make him into the most amazing husband and father I have ever seen or known.
For understanding that my hair cost is non negotiable.
For telling me I'm not fat 1,809,589,457,485,690 times.
For encouraging me in my dreams, and believing that they will come true.
For the way he works so hard just so that we can be a family without want or need.
For giving generously, without asking anything in return.
For bringing me chocolate cake when I'm crying, without me even having to ask.
For taking turns getting up in the night when our babies were newborns.
For giving me those amazing babies.
For tickling my arm and massaging my back, even though I never want to return the favor.
For being patient with me when I didn't know what I wanted or why I was where I was in life.
For allowing me to feel safe to tell the truth. Even when it hurts.
For making me laugh by dancing in the living room....and allowing me to post it on YouTube.
For his integrity.
For this life he's given me.
For the love he gives me.
For everything he has been.
For everything he is.
For everything he will be.
I love him.
'A lifetime is not long enough when it's spent with a man like you.'
Happy Anniversary, Baby. Here's to completing 6 years of marriage, and to new beginnings in our 7th.
In memory of my dad, who passed away 7 years ago to this day.
I miss you. I miss your phone calls, the way you called me honey and sweetie, but mostly I miss your unconditional love. One day, you'll have the chance to meet the man who continued to love me unconditionally once you had left my life. Yet, even though you are gone from my life, you live forever in my heart.
