“Despite everything, my love,
I was lucky enough to find you.”
I watched a young girl grow into a strong, intelligent woman over the years. She knew her heart and her future. And she wasn’t afraid to chase her dreams. I’m happy she had all those things I never did.
But it also made me realize, even though I missed out on so much growing up, I married a guy that has stood by his vows through all these years. I married into a family that has never once treated me as anything less than perfect.
