I've learned that marriages are about losing. Losing an argument. Losing control. Losing your pride.
I've learned that marriages are about compassion. Compassion for things you can't empathize with.
I've learned marriages are about grace. Giving grace to someone even if they don't deserve it.
I've learned that marriages take work. They aren't easy and they require constant work.
I've learned that marriages can reshape who you are in a good way.
But most importantly, I've learned what it means to have a constant advocate, caregiver, protector, stress-reliever, guardian, encourager and lover.
Happy Anniversary, M!
