When I was in college, waiting for life and love to begin, I used to have this poem on my wall:
"I want to be like that...
Where I close my eyes and throw my head back with laughter
and step up to dance with You.
My tiny hand in Your infinite one;
My steps so clumsy compared to your grace,
the music begins and we step out onto the floor.
My grip tightens, knowing I will fall, but knowing You will guide me.
The music swells, roars in my ears...
Until I am so enraptured that I cannot look at anyone but You.
My hands and feet poised for the next step, my head up,
and a smile of love on my face,
my eyes locked with Yours...
and then, maybe then, I will not even notice when You turn to one of Your sons
and He did...

Happy Anniversary My Love.
You are everything and more than I could have ever hoped and dreamed for. And even though I don't always show it, I am so grateful to God for bringing you and your amazing love into my life. Thank you for all of your support and encouragement in helping me fulfill my dreams. Thank you for believing in me even when I don't believe in myself...and for staying the course when I pull the line in all sorts of directions. I do not know what I ever did to deserve such a love as this...I only hope that I can return the same to you throughout our life together...
