Do you remember?… Do you remember when we were first dating? Remember spending every moment possible with each other then spending every other moment thinking about each other? Do you remember talking on the phone for hours and hours about anything and everything? Even just having the person on the other line, sometimes not talking at all. Do you remember smiling constantly thinking about the other and anticipating the next time we saw each other? Do you remember laughing so hard we both would be crying? Then crying so hard we both would start laughing? Do you remember the joy of being in love and knowing you were loved just as much back? Do you remember the thrill of it all? Your heart racing just thinking about the other? Do you remember the excitement of it all?
I remember! I remember it then… And I can feel it now.
It’s a blessing to fall in love, but to fall in love twice is so rare and beyond expected. It’s a treasure. We have endured quite a bit. It seems like not much more can get thrown at us and our marriage. But here we are. Stronger for it, falling deeper in love, committed even more so and truly, truly cherishing it. I CHERISH you! Here we are coming up on 7 years married. At ages 19 and 18, people said we were too young, that we needed to “experience life” first, even that we would have such a hard time because of it. Well, we were (are) young, we’ve experienced more in these 7 years together than most couples do in a lifetime, and we have gone through trials of all kinds…. And I would do it all again in a heartbeat!! You are so worth it to me! Your heart, your character, your life and your love. You and everything about you I love and will fight for, cherish, adore and choose time and time again. I almost lost you and praise God for his grace and faithfulness because here we are… Not just remembering falling in love way back when but experiencing it anew. Do you remember? I do because I’m falling in love with you right now…
