I dont even know where to begin. Today I get the privilege of celebrating my one year anniversary with the most amazing man I have ever known; and what a privilege it is! I never knew a love like this could exist. Throughout my life, Ive been taught that love is as equally happy as it is painful, a total 50/50. However, this relationship has taught me that it doesnt need to involve pain at all. Not that type of pain, anyway. The only thing that has ever hurt me thus far with George is the fact that he lives a thirteen hour drive away. Not being able to see his face every morning when I wake up, not being able to feel his arms around me every night as I fall asleep THAT has been painful. Hes never once hurt me emotionally. Not even on accident. Not a single distrust or white lie. Not a single negative comment about me, my looks, my personality, my parenting skills, anything. Hes done nothing but appreciate everything that I am since the day we met. This is the first relationship I have been in that has caused me to shed tears just because of the pure joy it has brought me. I have never felt this accepted, supported, attractive, and unconditionally loved before. And I, in return, adore him just as much. In my eyes, every single inch of his body is complete perfection. Everything he says, does, and thinks makes me smile. Even his imperfections and faults (if you could go so far as to even call them that) are perfect. They fit my personality. (Does that even make sense??) We complement each other in ways Id never experienced. Areas in which I lack he is strong, and vice versa. Hes my equal, my confidante, my partner, my lover, my best friend hes my rock. Im so deeply in love with this person, these words dont even begin to describe it. Thank you, George, for coming into my life. Thank you, George, for teaching me what true love is. And thank you, George, for making me the happiest woman in the world. I love you.
