Two years ago today, I put on a sparkly white dress & said "I do". I had no idea what the rest of our lives would hold, but I was so excited to find out. You were the strongest, Godliest, most handsome man I'd ever met and I was fully committed to following you where ever God led. God has certainly led us through a lot in just two short years- career changes, a cross-country move, house hunting which turned into property buying & house planning.. And finally, this accident. Looking back, I can see God's hand working through all of those situations to make us stronger.
On the day of your accident, my worst fear stared me in the face. No doctor or nurse could tell me that you were going to live. I didn't know if I would be able to spend the rest of my life with you like I'd planned.. I didn't know if I'd ever see your smile or hear your laugh again. You were my whole world; my inspiration, my encouragement, and my leader. I wasn't ready to lose you.
Apparently, God wasn't done with you either. Not only did He heal you miraculously, but He held my hand and carried me through the 4 1/2 weeks until you woke up. It was the longest month of my life, but also the most tremendous growth I have ever experienced. Without you, I had no choice but to lean on God and let him surround me with love. He gave me little moments of comfort by you communicating with us, even if you don't remember them.
Now that we are out of the waiting period, our real hard work has begun. You are fighting to regain function and strength in your body, and I am doing all I can to assist and serve you. I learned faith and dependence on God that first month. Now, I am learning what it means to truly love and serve you. I am learning what sacrifice and loyalty mean, and I have found true joy in taking care of you. I would rather be feeding you, bathing you, and caring for your wounds than any other place or activity on earth. You are my everything still, and I will stand by your side through every mountain we climb, and every victory we rejoice in. The last two years have been the best of my life, and I know that it will only get better from here.
Thank you for all that you have been for me, and thank you for humbly allowing me to serve you now. God has amazing plans for our future, and there is not a better man that I could have to be on this journey with. I love you as much as is humanly possible, and am so proud to be your wife.
Happy 2nd Anniversary,
