Happy Anniversary To US!

Musings of A Beautiful Mess
w00t! it's my 16 year anniversary! That, my friends, is CRAZY! It doesn't feel like 16 years, but it sure as hell doesn't feel like "wasn't it just yesterday?!" We've been through A LOT these past 16 years. Lots of ups and lots of downs, but I know that no matter what, I can count on Husband to see me through it and I him.

He knows me better then I know myself, which really pisses me off sometimes, but generally I'm thankful for it. He is my best friend, my soul mate, and the person I want to make happy. A lot of people don't understand our relationship or him and I use to care, now, they can all kiss my ass. He can be gruff at times, but he's honest. He may not say it as sensitive as he could, but he has NEVER lied to me, I respect him for that. He doesn't like to go out, quite the opposite actually, but never minds that I'm a social butterfly. We are opposites, but we compliment each other. I'm strong where he is weak and vise verse.

The first two years he was in San Diego in the Navy and I was in Oregon. It sucked and I hated every minute of it, but if it wasn't for those 2 years apart, I don't think we could have made it as far as we have. Those two years taught us how to communicate. Taught us how to live as a couple, as well as separately. Is was a blessing in disguise.

There are many topics that we don't agree on, but we can respect the other's view and opinion. There are topics that we couldn't agree on more and those are the topics where our marriage really thrives. Those times show just how compatible we are for each other.

He's made sacrifices for my family. He helped build a ramp when my mom had her wheelchair. He read the paperwork to my sisters and my dad that the funeral home had to have signed. He's been an amazing support system to me and I could never thank him enough for that.

Happy anniversary, love of my life!

Wheee! Happy Anniversary....Yes, I remember your hubby kicking your butt when you were still beaten down from your mother's death. He made you get up, get out and get some fresh air. Only a loving heart would have done that.

Here's to a lot of companionship, love, intimacy and prosperity for both of you!

Happy anniversary!!

Deathstar on June 29, 2009 at 9:59 AM said...

I think learning how to communicate in a marriage is the toughest thing I've ever had to learn. And learning to respect each other's differences is another one. You're really lucky to still have that spark for each other. Congratulations on your 16th anniverary - wishing you many happy years to come!

sassy on June 29, 2009 at 12:12 PM said...

Wow, 16 years... that's a real milestone... happy anniversary!

JamieD on June 29, 2009 at 12:27 PM said...

Happy Anniversary! Wow - 16 years!! What an accomplishment.

I know how very tough marriage can be. I think those are the best - you learn ~how~ to be married and how to come through difficult situations stronger. It sounds like you and your Hubby are a perfect match.

Here's to many more!!

Happy Anniversary, sistah!!

So excited for you!! It's funny - hubby & I had to spend the 1st 6 months of our relationship apart. he was in Japan playing bball & I was back in Cali, crying myself to sleep. LOL! Seriously though, if not for IM, I don't know how we would have made it. It totally taught us how to talk to each other. So crazy!!

HUGS!
