Has it really only been 7 years? Because it seems like it was a lifetime ago.
No, it couldn't possibly have already been that long. But, it also it feel so recent.
7 years next week, the day after Thanksgiving actually, will be the anniversary of when I knew that the Rooster loved me the way I loved him.
...since I found out that there would be no more first dates.
...since my heart felt whole. Really, really whole.
...since I knew, that I knew, that I knew what truly being in love felt like.
...since I knew what being in loved back felt like.
...since I knew I was the most beautiful girl to the only person I wanted to feel that way about me.
...since I first tried on his last name.
...since I pictured the precious babies that would be part of our lives one day.
...since I told him I cared deeply for him and his reply to me was that he more than cared about me, but that he loved me and knew that he would always love me.
...and the dates aren't as frequent
...but, the wholeness of my heart has grown as our love has grown into a deeper, stronger, more mature love
...and my confidence in knowing, that I know, that I know, that I know I am still in love with him
...is equal to my confidence of knowing that he is still in love with me
...and I know he still thinks I'm the prettiest girl he knows because he tells me frequently. Even when I don't agree. Especially when I don't agree.
...and that last name is now mine.
...as well as our two precious babies'.
...and I know that the promise he made me 7 years ago that he is going to love me always is a promise he's keeping.
|I love you, baby!|
