I love you.
I am part of you.
We are together and I finally “get it”.
All of those years wasted on men that I thought were full of potential and with a little tweaking could be ideal boyfriends or husbands.
All of those years wasted not listening to the wisest advice my mother ever gave me, ‘See how they treat their mother.’
All of those years feeling miserable and taking things personally because the men who were wrong for me didn’t want me.
And then came you.
You laugh with me. You hold me. You know me. You care about me. You take care of me. You care about our family. You care about your mom and your dad and your sibling and your extended family. You have interests that make you interesting. You aren’t going to sleep around because it’s honestly, not who you are. You are faithful and kind and loving and funny.
I love you. Unconditionally.
