I was going through old photos today and ran across this one. I can’t believe that my husband and I have been together for 4.5 years. It doesn’t seem like that much time has passed already from two little 18 year olds too nervous to hold hands to two 23 year olds who are married and bought a house together.
Throughout these 4.5 years, Anthony has shown me the definition of true love. As cheesy as it may sound. He’s constantly proving that someone can come into my life and no matter how much I fail, he won’t leave. He is every single prayer answered. He is everything that is good in this world. I’ve yet to meet someone who hasn’t said, “I really like Anthony.” Because he is a wonderful friend and a friendly conversation.
When I think back to our first few moments together, I would never have thought we’d be where we are today. God truly has had His hands upon this relationship. He continues to bless us both individually and as a whole. I know deep in my heart that Anthony was created perfectly for me. He balances me out, and he completed the empty parts of my being. He’s brave and outgoing where I’m more shy and I’m scared of everything. He’s good with numbers and well-rounded with knowledge. He’s strong and grounded.
He’s the leader of our small family and he puts the Lord as our foundation. Always seeking Him first in all we do. He is my unborn children’s father who already loves them with all his heart.
4.5 years of laughter, valleys and peaks, tears, hard work, and falling easily. He’s 4.5 years of smiles on my face and happiness in my heart.
Anthony, I pray for 4.5 million more years with you. Thank you for loving me so fiercely and so honestly. You’re definitely my better half.
