I have thought about whether or not I should write this, and I have decided to go for it. I want to be sensitive because I know there are so many women yearning for a husband whose desire has not been fulfilled yet. Given this, I still wanted to write a love letter to Nick on here because I have put marriage down often and I want to bless my husband.
I can confidently say that I hated marriage for a while. I felt so stuck and insecure in this new role I found myself in. That’s right. I say I accidentally fell in love. God (and my mom) really knew I wanted a permanent bestie, but I was Miss Independent. When we got married, I felt so unsure about what to do, how to behave. I felt so unnaturally tethered to this other human soul who is so different from me.
Nick, I love you so much. You are altogether wonderful, my love. God *so* knew what He was doing when he brought this city girl to your strong, gentle, loving, country arms.
Marriage has surprised me in the best way. This marriage is all about growing each other and living authentically. It has been stinking hard but has been all about the real good stuff of life.
You are so gracious to me when I am quick to be snappy.
You are so grounding.
You are so faithful to me.
You are so loving.
You take my hand and gently guide me.
You let me cry on your shoulder.
You listen so well to me.
You mirror Jesus’s love for me.
A number of times you have guided me to church when I have not felt like attending is pure grace.
You are so sweet.
You are so kind.
You are so positive.
You have taught me so much. You have taught me what this life is all about.
Thank you for loving me unconditionally.
Thank you for being you.
I love you.
