To my love, on our 8th anniversary (plus 1 month)

Dear Boy Toy, (on our 8th anniversary)

This letter is a month overdue now—probably even longer than that. I think about our life and our relationship often. In fact, as you know, I am writing our love story. 

Often when I am writing, I stop and get lost in thought, “what if I wouldn’t have first dated so and so . . . would I have been ready for you?” or, “what if I wouldn’t have had this experience.”

The thing is—God knew I am a wimp. I am sure that he sent you to me to bear me up when things get hard (for me, average for everyone else.) God knew that I questioned everything—and you nothing. He sent you to me to keep my strong, and following my path.

Josh you know me better than anyone. You know when to push and when to back off. You believe in my dreams, even when I can’t seem to find them anymore. Josh, you are my anchor, and my sail. Your support our family—not only physically, but emotionally too.

When times are hard, and I want to just run away from it all—I know I wouldn’t last long without you by my side. There are two people I want by my side through it all—you and the Lord. We have been together for 9 years (married 8 of them.) Those 9 years have taught me so much. They are only a drop in the bucket compared to the eternity we have promised each other.

I love you Josh Thomson, thank you for my wonderful life!
