How Did I Get So Lucky?

OK, so I'm on my second marriage.  We've been together for 15 years now...God I can't believe it!!  It seems like such a long time, yet I feel as though I've known him my whole life.  What did I do to deserve it?  I met him on AOL in 1997, when AOL was fairly new.  Of all the people in the world to meet, we somehow wound up in the same chat room...I just know it was fate!  He's 8 years younger than me (yup, I got lucky there too! lol), and yet in some ways, he is wiser than me.  He's more evenly keeled than me and the more rational of us.  I'm the impulsive one, the moody one, and he manages to balance me.  I used to be incredibly insecure and afraid of losing him all the time...even though he never gave me a reason to doubt his loyalty & faithfulness. 

He moved from his own state, at the time, to mine...just to be with ME.  How many people would do that? Over the years, he has brought me out of my shell and allowed me to feel confident and safe in our relationship.  He had a lot of hurdles to jump and so many walls to break down to get to my heart.  He never stopped trying, no matter how much I tried to push him away, out of fear I would one day lose him anyway, so why not sabotage things myself?  That was my motto.

He is my rock, my best friend, and we share everything together.  I would be utterly lost without him.  Though I don't always show it, I love him from the very core of my being.  Again, what did I ever do to deserve him?  To deserve the stability and unconditional love I get from him?  The never-ending support he gives me.  He allows me to follow my dreams & passions in life, and stands by me through good times and bad.  We have grown so much together, and I cherish that. I look forward to sharing the rest of my life with him.  David, my love, mio tesoro, I love you...ti amo...forever & beyond.

  1. Awww...wonderful story about you and David. It's not easy to find a man so dedicated to a woman, especially through all of our past baggage. I'm so happy for you two.
