I’ve been blessed to be married to Matt for over 20 years, and although the years have not been perfect, I am thankful to God for blessing me with him. I met my husband in high school on a blind date. If you ask Matt, he would tell you we fell in love at first sight. However, it took me about a month to admit my heart belong to him forever. I remember it like it was yesterday.
Matt, asked me out on a date to the movies, and I picked him up as he answered the door, his hair was wet since he just finished taking a shower and hung a bit over his eyes. Soon as I looked into his eyes, my heart leaped, and at that moment, I knew I wanted to be with him for the rest of my life.
Through the years I’ve been blessed to see him evolved at different seasons of our lives. I am more crazy about him now than I’ve ever been before.
The reason I love Matt from the moon and back…
He is an amazing father. We had our first son in our early twenties as most people our age were living the college life. Matt was finishing up his last year of college, working and preparing for a new life to come into the world. From the minute he held our oldest in his arms. his life has been devoted to doing what he needed to do to provide for our home. It wasn’t easy, and I am so thankful for him not ever giving up on us.
When my father passed away, before he died, Matt made a promise to him that he would do everything he could to take care of our kids and me. His first order of business was encouraging me to continue with my site, and as he worked three jobs, so I could focus on the building my company. I am grateful for him believing in me and sacrificing a lot for me to pursue my dreams.
I made so many mistakes, at the beginning of our marriage, however; he was always open and willing to work it out, eventually. Now I talk to him about every decision I make personally or business wise. He is the first person I talk to when something it bothering me and we love just hanging out, and we truly are best friends.
Don’t get me wrong, Matt and I are not perfect nor do we have a perfect marriage. I’m just at the point in my life that I chose to be thankful and appreciate what works in my marriage and pray about any hick up that may come.
