but he was the first one who didn't let go.
He wasn't the first man to whom I told my fears...
but he was the first one to comfort me.
He wasn't the first man to call me beautiful...
but he was the first to do so when I was sick,
hadn't brushed my hair or teeth, and felt anything but beautiful.
He wasn't the first man to encourage me to follow my dreams...
but he was the first one to help me attain them.
He wasn't the first man to go to church with me...
but he was the first one who took the time to pray with me.
He wasn't the first man to kiss me...
but he is the first one whose kiss took my breath away.
He wasn't the first man I fell in love with...
but he is the last man I will ever love.
The song below truly fits our marriage. We've been through A LOT of hard times, but it's made our love stronger every step of the way. I'm so blessed to be married to a man who puts his marriage above all else (except God, of course!)

That's When Love is True
By: Lori Loza
Darlin, you know I'd rather always see you smilin
But there are times when life's too much to bear
And I see you cryin
And all that I can say is, "I'm here."
Darlin, I know you always try to be the strong one
But please remember that I'm always there
If you need a friend
There is no sign of weakness in a tear.
Cuz Love's not love
When the skies are all blue
And love's not love
When it's easy to do
But when life is filled with heartache
And when life is filled with pain
And I'm holding you
That's when love is true.
I love you
And I am not afraid to say
I need you
I'm not as wise as I pretend to be
Yet in your eyes
I see the trust and faith you have in me.
Oh I love you
Though many times I wonder why
You love me
I don't deserve the mercy I receive
But it's so good to know
That even in the bad times you believe.
For the rest of our days
We will withstand
All that life brings
With hand in hand
Together as one
Time will reveal
Our love is real
Happy 10th Anniversary my love.
I look forward to many more decades by your side!
