Today I am grateful for the unconditional love of a husband.
But even more so, that I married someone who is capable of loving unconditionally. That is a uniquely sacred gift of The Spirit, and John personifies it. Those of you who have even only met him can see and feel that.
I am not an easy person to live with, let alone be married to. I know this. I am even aware of ways I can be a better wife, but my pride blocks my progression so much. That’s not to say that I don’t try, I just get impatient with myself. But John doesn’t get impatient with me. He has proven to me over and over again that he would do absolutely anything for me, and it never ceases to amaze and perplex me. You’d think I would get used to his compassion and unselfishness, but it still astounds me away that he can be so selfless and full of unconditional love for me. Especially when there are days when I simply know I don’t deserve his patience and mercy.
I can be a B.R.A.T., people.
Of all the people in the world, John deserves a wife that is angelic and sweet and serving and gentle with him. That’s how he is. But I regrettably admit that I do not treat him the way he deserves all the time. However, I am working on that as we learn and grown together in this thing called marriage.
Holy smokes, I’m learning so much.
Thank you so much for loving me, Baby.
