Song Lyric of the Day:
But something happened / For the very first time with you / My heart melts into the ground / Found something true
I didn’t get you a card for our anniversary today. It just didn’t seem that critical, buying that beautifully adorned card filled with platitudes I wish I’d written, mostly just because they rhyme. Besides, I’m pretty sure you know how much you mean to me. I’m truly happy (and proud) that we’ve made it this far, particularly in light of where we were exactly four years ago at this time, marking the day, separately, while planning the end of our marriage. But we managed to fight back (and sometimes just plain fight) our way to becoming stronger and closer than ever before.
You’ve been my best friend for 11 years now and have been by my side throughout some of the most amazing, fun, awful, unusual, heartbreaking, enlightening, adventurous, heartwarming things I’ve experienced. And for that, I’m eternally grateful, because there’s no one else I would have wanted to share all those things with, no one else who could’ve said just the right thing at the right time, or not said anything at all when I needed it most. And there’s certainly no one with whom I’d rather anticipate and experience all the things the future holds than you.
I may not have gotten you a card, but I’ve given you my heart.
