As a little girl I would it and imagine who I would marry. I’d give him some wild and crazy attributes like “nice” and “smart”. I thought it would be impertinent to ask for things like “good-looks” and “sense of humor”. But something that I would never compromise on, was that he would love the Lord. Some things are non-negotiable.
Now, I’m 31 (yes I just admitted that…I’m totally well-adjusted and utterly secure) and 12 years ago today, I married a man who not only met my previous desires, but far exceeded them. He has been such an amazing friend, confidante, love, protector, provider, and partner. I couldn’t ask for a better husband. I have said this before, but he makes being married easy. Why? His selfless nature. He always thinks of others before himself. Every time. I strive every day to be a worthy companion for him, and hope that the last 12 years have been as much of a blessing in his life as it has been in mine.
I love you, Lyndon!
