On our second anniversary...

Today is my second wedding anniversary. I am so blessed with an amazing husband, and I just wanted to share a few thoughts with him on this most special of days. 

My dearest Nathan,

Today is our second wedding anniversary, but it feels as if we met just yesterday. You still make me laugh. You still make me smile. You still challenge me daily. You are still the man of my dreams. I could not have imagined a man more perfect for me, but thankfully God did. He knew you were the man I would spend the rest of my life with before my life even began. For that, I am humbled and amazed.

There have been so many times that I have felt that I do not deserve you. When I have bad days, I wonder why you put up with me. When I cannot get a handle on my emotions, I fear that it will be too much for you. Will you still love me, even at my worst? That little voice from the enemy tries to convince me that you won't, that you will leave because I am too damaged, too sensitive, too much. You have proven to me, time and time again, that those are lies the enemy tries to use to bring me down. You have been my angel more times than I can count - a blessing from God sent to me even though I sometimes wonder how I am so lucky. 

My darling, you have helped me to grow so much. I know myself so much better now than I did three and a half years ago. You have shown me that I am just who I should be. You love me in spite of my imperfections, something that daily baffles and liberates me. Because of you, my love, I am learning to truly love myself just as I am. You make me into the best version of myself. 

You are my husband. My confidant. My best friend. My love. My angel sent from heaven above. 

I love you, my darling Nathan. I cannot believe it has already been two years, and I cannot wait for a lifetime more. 

With love,

Whitney
