Yesterday was Luke and my two year wedding anniversary. It was not at all how I imagined spending our day together, but I think it was truly a representation of our relationship and love for each other.
When ordinary couples say those vows of in sickness and in health they think of simple things such as making chicken soup and cold medicine. Or they imagine their life when they are old and grey trying to remember where the hearing aids are.
Luke and I have truly done the sickness and in health part (though I’d prefer more of the healthy side of things). I spent so long as his caregiver but as soon as he knew I needed his help he came to my rescue.
He spent all day yesterday trying to help me and make me comfortable despite it being one of the worst days. I threw up twice yesterday (not pretty I know) and he helped clean me up on the side of the road and gave me the shirt off his back. He got me home and into bed and anything I needed he brought to me or made me.
I can’t imagine my life without Luke. He is better than any fairy tale price and I never feel safer than when I’m with him. Thank you Luke, for being there for me. Thank you for putting up with my mood swings, my laziness, my constant need to be right. You are truly a saint for all you do for me, Penny, and Zoey. We are so lucky to have you in our lives.
I know these last two years haven’t gone at all as planned but I am so thankful we tied the knot two years ago and that I get to fall asleep next to you every night.
Happy Anniversary Lukey!
Ps. If I have the energy later I’ll post an update on our health. It’s just been a long few days and I need to listen to my body.
