Why I Chose You Then and Would Do It Again

Aaa It was a magical time for us then, when we first came together. Life wasn't perfect- but we were, from the moment you first held me as we danced across the floor. In our thirteen years, I never tire from hearing you tell that story,. "divine intervention" you call it. How you held me that first time and just knew.
Life has changed for us since then, but we still come together to find our own magic moments. Sitting by the fire, out on the patio, at the dinner table , when it's just you and me.
But the magic doesn't end with just us, you have embraced being a father, and set out to make magic for our girls too. They love their " go-to-guy" who makes them pizza, tells them stories, gives them hugs and everything else that they need to feel love and cherished, just like I do.Our day's are busy with our common goals- your business, the kids, my own commitments - yet you always encourage me- that I am doing it right, that I am talented and when I really need to hear it-  that I can do better.

And when the day grows long and  evening is near, it's not just our daughters that are waiting for Daddy, it is still a countdown for me too. Until you are by  my side, and our family is together.
I miss you as if you were still  across the country, like you were when we first met. Somedays, I count down the hours until you will be home, like we both used to mark the days until we were together.It is your smile that makes me happy. Your words I want to hear. Your heart I want to heal, when I see your tears fall, trying to imagine our family's future.
And at the end of each day , it's your arms I want to go to, because I believe in us, the strength of our family and most of all- divine intervention. Because I chose you then, and I would do it again.    

   Happy 11th Wedding Anniversary-
