Wedding Vows - A trip down memory lane (5 years ago TODAY)

You are my best friend, my companion, my confidant, my lover, and the answer to my prayers. God has seen fit to bring you into my life, and I thank him daily for you. You know how to brighten up even the darkest day of my life, and you give my life a sense of meaning that has been lacking for many years. I don't know if you truly understand how much your love and you mean to me. The simple thought of you makes me smile, your touch makes my heart leap, and the simple glimpse of your eyes and your smile makes my heart melt. There is not enough in this world to measure how much I love you and want to make you happy. Everything you do and say makes me want to be a better person, and makes me feel like a different person. I get lost when I am with you. Your beauty, smile, eyes and presence all show why I have fallen in love with you and want to be with you for many years to come. You make me feel like everything I do and think has importance. I have a sense of comfort around you like no other. Though we haven't known each other for very long, I feel we have known each other for a lifetime. You are my soulmate and you have all my "Endless Love" because I am "Truly" in love with you. When we are apart, just the thought of you makes me sit back and smile and think of all the wonderful things you have brought into my life. Take any of the dozen roses I bought you and multiply it by two, and that is the number of hours in a day that I think about you. The roses are a symbol of my love, and the love I have for you is unmeasurable. Here lays 11 roses, and the rose I have right here completes the dozen just as you have completed me. I can remember like it was yesterday when you gave me your first gift. You gave me a card before school started. You came to see me before open house to see my classroom, and your trip to a football game to set in the cold. These three situations did not go unnoticed. It means so much to me to know that you care about me and all that I do. Watching our love grow, has been a blessing. God has lead us together and now he will see us through whatever life has in store for us. There is nothing that we cannot overcome as long as we have God at the center of our lives. It only makes sense to keep the one that brought us together at the center of our lives. I pledge to you my undying love from now and forever. You can count on me in good times and in bad. I will be your rock and your foundation. I Love you With all my heart, my soul, and my being. I will love you forever and ever, NO NEVERS. You are the one that completes me, and I thank you and love you Lisa, and I can’t wait to spend my life proving this true.
I wanted to take some time to take a trip down memory lane and that I did. It has been 5 WONDERFUL years that I have spent loving my husband. He has completed me and has truly made me a better person. I can't imagine my life without him. He is a great husband, father and friend and for that I am so very blessed. As you read in "his" vows above, he gave me roses on our wedding day in front of everyone and still to this day continues to give me roses. Here is a picture of the roses that he bought for me today on our 5 yr Wedding Anniversary!! I will post my vows to him later on for you all to read, but to be honest...... there is no comparison. WOW, what a wonderful blessing I have in Shawn!! I love you my sweetheart forever and ever with NO NEVERS, NEVER ANY NEVERS!! Here is to hoping that you all experience the great love with your husband or significant other just like I have with Shawn. When you find the "right" one you just know and trust me........we just knew!!
