3 Wonderful Years

Today is our anniversary. Three wonderful years!
When I met my husband, I had no idea how my life was about to change.
I had just finally wrapped up my nasty divorce, and then had a few brief but frustrating, unhealthy relationships.
I was having a blast, don't get me wrong! Every other weekend, my kids went to their dad's house and I went out and partied. I mean PAR-TAYED!!! I had a great time. I lived out the youth I never had, since I got married when I was 18 and had a child before I turned 20.
But relationship-wise, things were disastrous and I'd pretty much sworn off of the them for the time being.
Then, my white knight rode in.
I was skeptical. The more we talked, the more perfect he seemed. Which made me even more skeptical! Surely, he was married. Or lying. Or psychotic. Serial killer, perhaps? Nobody could be this perfect for me!
But as time went on, I realized.....he was. He was everything he seemed to be, and so much more.
I was terrified. How could I fall in love and trust someone again? How could I put my heart on the line again and risk it getting torn apart?
But, how could I not?
He made it so easy. He promised to never hurt me. He told me his only goal was to make me happy.
And three years later, he has never, ever let me down. I am still amazed. I never thought anyone could love me like this. I thought relationships like ours only existed on TV and in the movies. But it's real, and I'm living it every day. And I am so very blessed!
I can't imagine how I lived without him for all those years, but I hope I never have to live without him again.
Happy Anniversary to Us!
