I am not quite sure how I got so lucky...other than - it wasn't really luck. I knew what I was looking for - and instantly, when I saw you - those calm, cool, collected blue eyes, your quiet way of listening and absorbing every important detail - I knew, even before I knew why, that you were going to be a powerful force in my life. I might not have known then that we'd be here, this many years later, having made it through so many things (good and not so good), but I had an inkling that you'd have an impact far beyond the sexual, because you naturally had so much power over me...in a way that almost frightened me, because I had little control over my desire for you. You unnerved me and made my insides flutter.
Each year, each stage of our evolving marriage, is an adventure with you. I cannot imagine life without you.
You are amazing, and I am so proud of your accomplishments. Everything you have achieved in the last 5 years has amazed me. Thoroughly. Each day, I am that much more proud and impressed. I am blessed to have you in my life.
P.S. You told me you had a writing assignment for me...but you never told me what it was.
