The Tie That Binds

What can you say about someone who accepts you as you are, and loves you through the depths of the dark valleys and the intoxicating highs of each mountain peak. Someone who encourages you and lifts you up when the doubts set in. Someone who offers perspective when you allow your "leap before you look" syndrome to take control.

Almost sixteen years ago this someone ask me to make him the happiest man on earth by agreeing to marrying him. How did I get sooooo lucky?

Sounds like he was the lucky one. You're a gem and he must have known that from the start. Husbands, gotta love em.

Love,

I need to clarify. Today is not our anniversary. This week I am writting about my blessings.
As I read back over my post and I see where it could be confusing. Sorry I didn't intend to mislead.

How absolutely wonderful to meet you for the first time by popping into this post! You are a lovely woman and you and the hubbers look very happy (How does he feel about Visas?) I am very, very happy for you. Unconditional love is so special. I've been very happy myself for just over 10 years. And, I read about your son below - how terribly, terriby stressful. So glad he is doing better. Don't you just want to change places with them so badly? I am sure he will heal well surrounded by the love you and your hubbers provided. With love! Esther
