What Matters Most … ♥

Who would have thought

We’d end up together?

You were shy

and I was not

You were different

from all the rest I’ve known.

And now

years and years after

here we are


still working on


our kids

and each other

looking in the same direction

holding on to each other


and praying

for the same things

that matters most in our lives…

and as i look at you

and see the marks of age and wisdom

i often ask myself

what life could have been

without you?

then i say a prayer

of gratitude to God

for I would not want life any other way…

only with you.

life’s troubles and problems

came constantly in our doorstep

lingered and stayed

long enough to teach us

life’s lessons

and what matters most.

and so i thank

Heavenly Father

For giving you to me…

to have and to hold

to lean on

to look up to

to cry with and laugh with

what we have

and what we don’t

doesn’t make who we are

or what we are

love matters most

and you

and our children


hopefully …


i love you ♥
