Today my eyes were opened.
Today was a good day.
I looked at my husband and smiled.
And I thought to myself...damn, I love him enough to get through anything.
We've been bickering for a month straight and today I realized I think its all worth it.
He is so beautiful. So caring, responsible, kind hearted, gentle. His deep voice and big hands soothe me.
Nothing comforts me more than putting his hand on my cheek after a bad day.
Damn.
I have a cold and tummy ache today, but I don't care. For some reason, today...I love like the first day I realized we'd be together for a helluva long time.
Today I renew our vows.
Could it be because a couple years ago on Labor Day weekend, we walked through the Brooklyn celebrating the Caribbean, celebrating our new love....me in poompoom shorts and he possesively, proudly and lovingly resting a hand on my lower back.
I had a feeling that weekend I would never want another hand resting there.
Today I will say who I love.
And know that I am blessed to be loved in return.
That I can't doubt. I am so so loved.
I had to open my eyes from my ideas of what form love would come two years ago to see that love
today I needed to open my eyes again.
Today I did.
I have so much to be thankful for.
