Happy 5 years to My Favorite

Today is our 5 year anniversary.  I have been thinking back on all I put Jim through 5+ years ago.  Poor guy, I was very scared of marriage.  I loved him very much, but in the back of my mind I kept waiting for him to leave, and subconsciously, I kept pushing him to leave.  There's not one marriage in my family, in my lifetime, that has lasted or that has been a good marriage, so I was very afraid to fail.

But here we are 5 years in and going strong.  Every day I love him more.  Every day I get a better look at just how big his heart is and how greatly he loves.  I don't know if he wakes up in the morning wondering how to make my day better or if it just comes naturally for him, but not a day goes by that he doesn't make my world a better place.  Honestly, I've said it before and I'll say it forever, Jim is a much better, kinder person than I am, and a great example for me on how to love.  He's not only an amazing husband, but he's also an incredible father.  Awhile ago, I was in another room, but I could hear Jim with the boys and tears just filled my eyes because of what I heard.  How grateful I am for the man I married because I've never known a better father. 

Jim, you are my heart and my backbone.  You are my best friend and my favorite EVERYTHING.  I love you with every thing that I am and every thing that I have.  Thank you for our beautiful boys.  Thank you for our wonderful life.  Thank you for every day that we have together.  Thank you for loving me years ago when I know it was hard to love me.  Thank you for fighting for us when I didn't know how to.  Thank you for taking a chance on me when I wouldn't have.  Thank you for every moment that we've had the last (almost) 6 years.  But mostly, thank you for still loving me and making it so easy to love you.  

I love you and I always will.  Always.
