this is my husband

This is Jeremy. He is my husband. My kind and loving, oh so smart, talented, patient, hard-working, self-less, best friend. He has always been amazing, but lately I've been falling more madly in love with him. He's so good at pushing me further without bringing me down. He sees potential in me. He helps me reach for my dreams. He calls me beautiful and makes me believe it.

I never mentioned this, but my birthday came at the ultimate worst time for his school schedule. He had two incredibly hard tests on and right after my birthday and even though he was up at 4:30 on the morning of my birthday to study, he ran to the store to buy me flowers and a card and woke me up by singing happy birthday.  

This man, you really can't do better than him.

I love that we think alike, we want the same things out of life and for our family. I love that we share a sense of humor. I love that he's not perfect, because being married to a perfect person wouldn't be very fun, but I love the way he works at being closer to perfection each and every day. I was talking to a friend today about marriage, and particularly how grateful we each were that our first years of marriage weren't harder. We both attributed it to our patient husbands. Then she said, "Marriage is hard. But it's a heck of a lot easier when you marry the right person."  I'm so grateful for my Mr. Right. For the strength he is to me, and for all he brings to our family. He has helped me to where I am today and I'm so glad to be spending forever with him.
