So….Paul and I have now known each other for 7 years. We started talking on July 13th and met in person for the first time on the 17th. We were pretty inseparable right from the beginning. He was at my home any time we weren’t working and my children were with their Dad. We moved quickly and were judged by many, but we just knew right from the very beginning.
Last week I went through my hope chest. My hope chest has all of the cards that Paul and I have exchanged with each other over the last 7 years. For Anniversary’s, Valentine’s day, Christmas..etc.
I keep these because they are our love notes to each other. When I’m having a hard day, when I need a pick me up, I can go into my bag of cards that have been exchanged and read thoughtful heartfelt words form my husband.
Two cards stuck out to me this past week as I was going through and I decided to frame them.
I didn’t frame them because I am afraid that we will forget. I framed them because it doesn’t hurt to remember! One of these was a card that I had given to Paul and the other was one that he had given to me. The words inside are beautiful, true and pure.
At the core is Love. Always choose each other. Work every day, to choose to love each other. It is hard some days, but for the last 7 years I haven’t regret one single moment and it has all been well worth it.
