It's my hubby's birthday tomorrow, although we actually celebrated on Friday. We've celebrated 14 of his birthdays together now. That's a lot of birthday cake. Except this year, he didn't have cake, just some fried ice cream that was shoved in his face. Haha. Not by me, though. ;)
I've found that as the years have gone by, naturally the comfort level in our relationship has grown. Fights are few and far between, as we've learned which buttons to push or avoid. There's no second guessing if he will like a present that I bought or a meal that I cooked. Glances, smiles, expressions, silences - they all speak volumes and we know them all like the back of our hand.
We've been through a lot together. The birth of our sweet babies. The untimely deaths of loved ones. Triumphs, failures. Times when we couldn't stand each other, times when we couldn't bear to be apart. There are sweet memories and there are old wounds.
And there are days yet to come. I can't wait to celebrate many more birthdays together with my partner in crime, my best friend, my love.
Whatever happens, I know one thing for sure: I won't let go.
