Boy, did I marry well. I had no idea, after dating for 2 1/2 years, a 13 month engagement, and 6 years and counting of marriage that I'd fall so hard for my husband with each passing day.
He is a Godly leader. He is rational and strong. He lovingly corrects me when I need correcting...once a year or so.
He endures the arrows of the Hurt. He wraps his arms and heart around the Lost. He lovingly nudges the Obstinate. God created him a shepherd from within.
He sings a love song to me in each day that we live together, simply in his thorough and outstanding character.
His is the kind of father that creates wind for a long-promised "kite-day".
He makes my heart smile even when it is hurting.
My husband nurtures and protects in a profound way.
And yet he is still just a big kid at heart.
Thank you, my sweet husband, for being the man my dreams didn't even realize.
