Six weeks ago, I was lying in bed at the hospital after having major surgery, a complete hysterectomy.   At 4:46 in the morning, I looked over and saw the most beautiful thing.

I saw my future husband, and the love of my life. He hadn’t left my bedside one time-protecting me, loving me and caring for me. I was in pain, and he knew it.  So, he stayed with me, without hesitation.  As I looked over at this wonderful man, all 6 foot 2 inches of him- uncomfortably sleeping on the small bench next to me in my room, the pain hurt less and my heart was full. I knew at that moment, he would never leave me.

We take turns being strong when the other is weak. If I had to, I could do all this on my own, but loving my Christopher has shown me I don’t have to, never again.   I am loved, well loved by this amazing man.  This is what true love looks like….
