Who would have thought you and I would be standing here today?! 6 years ago, we were friends and you had just finished editing a friend’s wedding video. After watching it, I enthusiastically asked if you’d shoot my wedding video one day. You were so offended, saying that you had hoped we were good enough friends to at least be invited to my special day.
You made the cut.
When I met you, I had no idea how much my life was going to change. But then, how could I have known? A love like ours happens once in a lifetime. You were a godsend to me, the one who was everything I had ever hoped for, the one I thought existed only in my imagination.
When you came into my life, I realized that what I had always thought was happiness, couldn’t compare to the joy loving you has brought me. You are apart of everything I do, everything I think and feel, and with you by my side, I believe that we can overcome anything.
We have already faced a life changing event that most don’t experience until much later in life. Although it doesn’t seem like it at times, but I consider us quite lucky. Because of this journey that we involuntarily signed up for, I can say with absolute confidence that a year that should have been the worst of my life, turned out to be the best.
I know that sounds unbelievable to those listening, but you and I know what a gift we’ve truly been given. For me, the gift was your unwavering support. You pumped me with every organic juice possible, you wrote stories about our future to ensure I’d visualize the outcome we both wanted and you made me look into your eyes before each appointment and repeat after you, “I’m going to be okay.” As I stand here in front of you today, I can look into your eyes and I can promise you that we are going to have a lifetime of being more than just okay.
Because of you, I laugh, I smile and I dare to dream more than I ever have. Thank you for the miracle of you. You are, and always will be, the love of my life, my soulmate, my person.
