Marriage - How It All Works Out - Year VI


After 6 years of being married to my one and only love of my life I think back to how it all started. 

It's really so crazy when you think about all that has to happen to even meet the person you are supposed to marry, let alone for it to work out that you even get to know each other, date, and like each other, let alone falling in love and wanting to be with each other all the time, so you marry, and are together for forever! 

You know, it almost didn't work out between me and Klint.  But it did.  I'm so glad Heavenly Father helped things happen with us : )

I think about it and and am so grateful that I lucked out and didn't get just anyone... I am married to a wonderful, amazing, funny, talented, beautiful, fun, sweet guy.  I couldn't ask for a better companion.  I love love love being married. Thank you Klint for being more than I ever thought I would have in a husband and loving me more than I ever thought I'd be loved.

The beginning of this year I read the "The 5 Love Languages" and figured out my (and Klint's) love languages.  I knew that he likes service and quality time.  But now Klint knows that I like quality time, touch, and words of affirmation.  I need to be told "I love you" as well as hugged and kissed to know it too.  Plus I love just being with Klint.  We would both rather be with each other than with anyone else.  Though we do love our friends and family : )  And since Klint realized how important those things are to me he really shown me he loves me by telling me more and holding my hands and touching me more even though it doesn't come as naturally to him. 

Klint shows me he loves me through service (which while it means more to him I like it too).  Like when I come home from work and Klint has done a "deep clean" of the entire house (mopped the tile, cleaned the kitchen counters, done the dishes, done ALL the laundry - towels, sheets, clothes, vacummed all the carpets, cleaned the bathroom completely!  I mean come on, what kind of guy spends his whole day doing that?!  I am so lucky!  The only thing I ask Klint to do are the tile floors and the toilet - I just don't like to do those.)

Happy Anniversary babe.  I can't imagine life without you by my side.  Thanks for being such an amazing husband and friend.  "I love you sooooooo much!"
