Our First Anniversary

My Dearest Warrior Poet,

I can’t believe we made it to our one-year anniversary! Sadly, my return policy has already expired. LOL just kidding, I wouldn’t return you for anything. Ever since I started talking to you as a friend, I just knew that I loved your personality. Your silly jokes, hard worth ethic, and love for the Lord made me fall in love with you.

I was so excited to accept your proposal at the park just a few days after I arrived…and I was even more excited for our lives to become intertwined when we said, “I do.”….

This year, God has truly shown me what courage, trust and true love are all about. I became your sweet Ruth leaving her home ready to start a new chapter in her life. You are like my strong Boaz. Treating me with kindness and respect and showing me how strong of a woman I actually am.

A week after we got married, we ended up on a search for my father-in-law, we found him at the hospital, with him to be released with marching orders to see a specialist. Our family would get an even bigger shock two weeks later, when we went to his house for a wellness check and found him on the floor. And sadly Jack was confused. Months of visits to a rehab with hope of recovery turned to sadness as a doctor told us Hospice care would be in Jack’s future.

With God as our commander, we pulled together like a tight blanket to help bring Jack home until a few months later when he joined his heavenly father in heaven.

Don’t worry dear, going on poetry walks is one of my favorite ways to help us beat the pounds and for me to help you experience poetry.

Before I became your wife I worried about the little things-like how to cook. From cooking you a delicious chicken soup to an almost burning up pizza I overcame my fear of burning up our apartment in flames. The fear has been extinguished and now it shows in our pounds on the scale.

As I sit here thinking about our first year together, I can’t count all of the laughs, tears, and hugs we shared.

I have been praying for a husband since the age of twelve; I am so honored that God finally answered that prayer by giving me you.

Happy first anniversary my warrior poet.

P.S. there are fresh cookies on the counter for you to enjoy. 😊
