Happy Anniversary to my husband Micah whom I love with all my heart! It's been eight years together, can you believe it? It seems like just last week you were carrying me in my wedding dress, into our new apartment. You opened the door on that chilly, November night, and thought that the proper thing to do with your brand-new bride would be to scoop me up in your arms and carry me through the door. That was the very beginning of our lives together. That moment will always make me smile, and always remind me of how much you love me.
You have carried me through so many doorways, these past eight years, metaphorically speaking...
You have been my rock and my strength when I really needed you to be, weather I realized it or not. It was your vision of family and forever happiness that made me a mother. It has been your strong desire for goodness and righteousness that has made me a better person. It was your powerful love for me that has made me whole.
I love you with all my heart, and want to thank you for giving me the greatest gift of all, my family. Because you had the courage to first tell me you loved me, then to bravely ask me to marry you, to keep me close when things got rough, together we created the most beautiful thing in the world--Our family.
Happy eight years to the man I will spend eternity with. (I love you, anyways.)
