I'll love you forever


It's always surprising to me the way our love grows. It grows in ways I didn't expect, or couldn't have predicted when I was a 20-year-old girl.

This year the way my love grew for Ben was in dependence. We've created a partnership, we lean on each other.

Parenting gets a bad rap when it comes to romance. You don't have time to focus on each other, you're stretched too thin. But surprising to me, throughout all the struggles and hard things that happen, we've grown closer together. Some nights when the days are hard and I get into bed, I reach over and I can find Ben's hand, and I thank God that I have him to share this load with.

He never complains about the extra load he takes on because I'm in school. He just gives, and gives, and gives. He's a man of strong character, he knows who he is and confidently lives what he believes. I have learned a lot from him.

My romance with Ben is growing more and more multi-faceted over the years, it's a joy to behold. It's like a colorful basket filled with an array of blooms. I can pick up an individual blossom and admire its delicate beauty. We will add more, and different flowers, as the years go on and we grow older.

Oh Ben let's go on together! I want to walk hand in hand with you into eternity. Our hands will be old and wrinkly by then. I'll pull out our basket, and hold on to the the partnership posy we cultivated this year, at the bottom of a very full and deep basket. With it in hand we'll lean on each other as we walk to the end, never to part. I want to love you forever.
