I am so lucky.

Sure, bad things happen to me, just as everyone else.  Some are trivial, some are important.  Nevertheless, I am lucky.  Because at the end of it all, I get to be with the greatest person I have ever met.  Someone that loves me in ways I never thought existed.  I am the luckiest of them all.

It’s so easy.

She is my favorite everything.  She makes the bad things go away.  She makes the good things even better.  There is nothing I would rather do than to love her.  It’s the best feeling in the world, and it is so easy.

It’s so hard.

Sometimes, she doesn’t think she deserves to be loved.  Sometimes, I have to make her understand that I want her always.  In the beginning, it was hard for her to grasp that someone would just want her, and only her.  Just want to love her, just because.  And want nothing in return but a hand to hold, a cheek to kiss, and a heart to love.  After almost a year, she finally gets it.  She finally understands that I just want her time, her kiss, and her snuggle.  But on a bad day, it’s hard for her to understand.  This is when I love her the most–when it’s hard.

Forever in just a few moments.

In just a few moments in a hot tub, and a kiss in a freezing cold pool, I knew I had found forever.  I get to marry her in a few weeks.  Something I had given up on.  Something I had grew not to want, to shrug off as unnecessary and silly.  But in just a few moments, that all changed, and I wanted forever.  Forever with the one I love.  The one that supports me, makes the good things great, makes the bad things bearable, and makes every day better than the last.  I want to savor all the days, forever.

I love you baby doll.  I loved you before I met you, I love you now, and I will love you always.  Thank you for showing me so much, for saving me, and for giving me a smile.  You’re the best person I know.  Finding you was so lucky.  Loving you is easy.  Being apart is hard.  And forever happened in an instant, and I can’t wait to spend it with you.  Because you are my favorite everything.
