Six Years

Michael and I have been married for six years. To commemorate this occasion I have decided to write down six new things that I learned about him and love about him this year.

1. I love that Michael was willing to let go and just be a kid with his kids and I in California on vacation. This year we went to d-land. It was so much fun to see Michael pretending with Miles and soaking up the magic in Isaac's eyes. Thank you for providing that for us and for enjoying it with us.

2. I love that Michael is so forgiving. I am a growing person but I have so many faults. Michael sees me without seeing my faults. I want to prove to him that I can be the person he sees in me.

3. I love Michael's connection with his children. This last year Isaac has often insisted that his Daddy be the one to put him to sleep. I have often been tired and overwhelmed dealing with Isaac's medical conditions. Michael figured out a way to put Isaac to sleep and for much of the year he has done this on his own.

4. I love that he has such strong shoulders to cry on. I have cried much during the last year. Heartache for family, friends, and personal struggles have brought me again and again to the comfort of his arms around me. Thank you for holding me up; without you I would fall.

5. I love that Michael sees others needs more then his own. Michael fills the needs of his family and friends before he fills his own needs.

6. Lastly I love that Michael has found the time to focus on us during the chaos f the last year. Sometimes as a mother I forget that I need to take time to renew and strengthen the most important relationship I will ever have. Michael takes me out on dates and we have quiet conversations at home. Thank you for those moments baby.

So six wonderful years...I am so blessed.
