Nine Years Ago


Nine years ago today Chris told me for the first time that he loved me. I wish I could say my response was the same and I so badly wanted to say it back but had heard it before and I was not about to give my heart away if he was not the one. I believe my exact response was "Thanks for telling me." Yeah, made him feel good, huh. When I told my Dad what I said he started laughing and said that I ripped his heart out and sure enough it did. I am happy to say though that that next Labor Day I was able to say it and mean it with my whole heart. I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that Chris was my answered prayer.

Nine years later he still loves me which I cannot fully understand but I am so grateful. I don't know what I would do without him. He makes life fun and he makes me laugh. There are days when I can't wait until it is just he and I again. He is the one I have prayed for and I love him more everyday!!!!
