post valentines day post

okay... so I admit Valentine's Day is not one of my favorite holidays...most women can relate.
But after looking at so many blogs the past few days... Oh!
All the love...
Well...Cupid hit me a long time ago.
A long time ago, back in 1997 I was a cowgirl & he was a cowboy.
{he will always be}
From the moment we met at the rodeo dance my life has never ever been the same. Ever.
At the age of 17 I knew he was meant for me. But did I...we both were so young and so in love and lived in totally different states and grew up in two different worlds. But Someone had a plan... A bigger plan than we ever imagined. That plan or that Someone kept us together- as we grew up together. {literally}
When we both found our paths in life,
{more like a very long dirt road}
it was a breath of fresh air when we realized we were on the same one.
{ahhh...yes there are so many details in between but...}
I married my cowboy. He married his rodeo queen. True Story.
So as our dirt road took so many twist and turns and
sometimes switchbacks I have come to the conclusion that:
I have found my soulmate
I have married my best friend.
I love him more every day and even more after the day I get mad at him. :)
He knows me like no one has ever known me.
He loves me like no one has ever loved me.
He believes in me.
He listens to me.
He helps me.
He is a good man.
He is an even better dad.
He loves his family with all of his soul.
He would protect us.
He would die for us.
He makes me smile.
He makes me cry.
He makes me mad.
He always says "sorry" first.
He is humble.
He is my rock.
He is more things to me than I could ever list. Than I could ever say. I try...but I somehow can never find the right words. More than anything...I think we (i) get so busy in our day to day life. Our little routine. Our kids, jobs, hobbies, friends- that list could go on forever, that we (i) forget to remind him and myself, just how important he is to me. So...I guess this is why this silly little holiday we call Valentine's Day is even in exsistance.
It's a reminder.
A reminder to me, to make my Valentine feel like a Valentine every day.
happy valentines day.
