“When two souls are meant to connect: location, timing, and circumstance are all irrelevant. They suddenly become a magnet for one another and despite their efforts to fight it, the universe somehow manipulates it all in their favor, and in that moment when they finally give in, a new love is born.”- unknown
Almost 20 years ago my life changed forever; Dave walked in and without knowing it, he became my safety, my love, and my light. When Dave and I met, I was young, just out of a relationship and struggling to find my purpose. Most people think your soul mate is your perfect fit. I believe Dave was a mirror, the person who showed me everything that was holding me back. He brought attention to the things I was unaware could change my life. I consider Dave my TRUE SOULMATE, he is the person who tore down my walls and made me realize what true love looks like.
At any given moment, fighting an illness can either drive a wedge between you or bring you closer together. In the pst 12 years, Dave has never made me question how our relationship would survive, he has always maintained the solid foundation which this journey has survived upon. His humor, his heart, and his soul have been my saving grace. I don’t say that lightly. Dave is one of the reasons I am still here. He never gives up on me and will never let me give up on myself.
Birthdays are a big deal to me. I believe everyone should feel like celebrating their life. I am also jaded because life has become very precious to me and I believe everyday should be a celebration of life. 45 years ago today my amazing husband was born. 45 years ago this world became a better place because of him.
Dave, I am honored to be your wife, your partner in crime, and your true soul mate. I hope you realize your importance to not only me but to everyone who has been lucky enough to know you. Thank you for your unending support, love, and laughs that keep me on my toes.
Our marriage hasn’t happened by luck or by accident. Our marriage is the result of constant investment of time, thoughtfulness, forgiveness, affection, mutual respect, and a rock-solid commitment between us. I would choose you over and over without a doubt or hesitation. Happy Birthday my love.
