Six years ago today

Six years ago today, I woke up as Heather Miller for the last time.

Six years ago today, my Dad walked me down the aisle and I went from being Daddy's Little Girl to being your wife.

Six years ago today, I held back tears as you recited your vows to me.

Six years ago today, I didn't know how to love unselfishly.

Six years ago today, I married you the father of my beautiful daughter.

Six years ago today, we didn't know another little girl was on the way.

Six years ago today, we crashed in the hotel room after the wedding utterly exhausted, completely unaware of the sleepless nights to come.

Six years ago today, we stood before our family and friends smiling happily not knowing the difficult days ahead.

Six years ago today, I thought I could never be happier.

Six years ago today, I thought I loved you.
Today, I look at you and I KNOW what love is.

Today, I realize the happiest days of my life are each day I spend with you and our children.

Today, I find myself thankful for the difficulties we've faced because it's made us stronger as a couple.

Today, I can say that a sleepless night with you is better than a night of perfect sleep without you.

Today, I'm eternally grateful for the children you've given me.

Today, I see all our marriage has taught me. How to love strongly, unselfishly and completely.

Today, I hold back tears as I write this and find myself consumed with my love for you.

Today, I know that I married the second best man in the world (next to my Dad).

Today, I am proud to be your wife.

To my sweet husband: I hope you know how much you mean to me. Each day that I wake up beside you is a great day. Words can't express how much your love means to me. The past six years have been eventful, both good and bad. We've endured more as a couple in six short years than most do in a lifetime. But in the end we still come out together, stronger than ever. You are absolutely the best husband I could ask for. You're my soul mate, the man of my dreams and my best friend. I know I don't say it nearly enough, but thank you. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for putting up with me. Thank you for the good days. Thank you for the hugs on the bad days. Thank you for our children. Thank you for the laughs. Thank you for being you. I love you and I'm proud of you.

Six years ago today I said "I do"..and today I say I would do it all over again.
