My husband and I have been together for 16 years. We have been married for 9. There have been ups and downs and some bad patches, but overall, I truly think we are blessed. Most of the time I feel as though I have just fallen in love with him. I look at him and think "I love him so much". I want to kiss and hold him as if we just met, but only better because there is so much love and history there.
I know how things can be and I am not going to say we have never been there. A lot of things happen in 16 years. I grew very distant when my Dad passed away. Although I don't think you ever fully recover, I have learned. I am in love with my husband. There are so many things to love about him. He doesn't think so which just makes it easier to love him.
I just consider myself lucky and blessed. Very blessed.
