Three Years.


You, who are most familiar to me. You. The way you smile, how you hold my hand, how you snore softly, how you catch my gaze from across the room and the way you laugh so easily. We two are similar, but not so much actuality in mirror. Our language, our sense of humor, our love, our laughter and our understanding are one. The same. As if you had been a part of my entire life. How I wish you had been. You have become my soul, my rock, my heart and my essence in my life, my thoughts, my prayers and my dreams. My gift. I am grateful. You add happiness to those who know you and those who will be lucky to cross your path.

You are kind, thoughtful and generous. Pure. Unassuming and revealed as much as necessary. You are sensitive, careful, diplomatic, reliable, calm, intelligent and strong. Teaching me the same. You are handsome and loyal. Choosing to look past that of which I am. I am perplexing, clownish and headstrong. Sometimes disheartened. I am erratic and occasionally distant. And yet, you still hold a deep love for me.

You saw through my brokeness, my flaws, my vulnerability and my blotched mascara. You could have left me, but you chose to take me. I have finally loved the right person.

Happy anniversary, Thomas. I love you.

Thank you, everyone!

I wish I was at home celebrating with the husband instead of sitting at my desk surrounded by spreadsheet. I'd much rather be surrounded by Thomas . . .

Other than the whole "work thing", it's been a great day. I'm looking forward to getting home and to a nice dinner out with some wine for the 2 of us. Can't have an anniversary without wine, can we now?

Again, thanks ya'll!

No, you can't, but, um, you do remember what working with a hangover is like, right?

Jay said...

Happy Anniversary.

Loved the words. Beautiful and heartfelt.

Now, get out that wine, and be sure to have a few drams as well.

Jen said...

We did order a very nice bottle of wine. We did not get into the Dram. (evil, evil Shanks!) I think the husband would have, but I had to put my foot down. I am a working lay-dee now and would never make my start time if I got drunkard the night before I have to work. I'm always reminded in some way how I'm not 23 anymore. . .

Geesh.

Great night though. Little post to come later. . .
