Today is my love's and my 3rd anniversary. Three years ago, we were standing on a hill on a hot, Saturday, afternoon making some very important promises to each other. They went something like this:
Bea, Somebody once told me that I should marry my best friend because that
is the relationship you have to work the hardest to keep strong. So, in
this beginning of forever, I promise to be your best friend. I promise
to be the shoulder to cry on and the hand to hold on sunny walks through
the park. I promise to be the arms of protection and the man of God
that you need by your side. And, I'm not sure that it will ever be
enough time, but I promise to love you forever.
Luke, today is the beginning of forever for you and I. And as we begin
on this adventure, I promise to love you through it all. I promise to be
with you through all the ups and downs of life. I want to see the stars
with you and walk the miles with you. Someone once said that, “A friend
hears the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails.”
Luke, I promise that I will always try and be that friend to you. I
I have been truly blessed by the One who created this life. He put Luke by my side and continues to walk with us. And those words that my love promised me on that day three years ago, he has kept them. He's been there for me through a lot and he has my heart.
