“If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around.”
This morning, Mr. T (Mr. Todd Mullins) watched as I unwrapped two Bath & Body Works gift cards and a $100 spa gift card.
Then, he knelt down by the couch next to me and whispered beautiful words to me about how happy I have made him, how I have always been the girl of his dreams (from the time we were 16 years old until now), and, after a few other sweet somethings in my ear, he pulled this beautiful ring out of his pocket and asked me to marry him.
Of course the answer was "YES". He is so good to me - always loving, always thoughtful, attentive and kind. I've felt for an entire year that I don't deserve him...but I am revising that opinion now.
I do deserve him...and he deserves me. We have both known the pain of feeling invisible, unhappy and unfulfilled in a marriage. We have learned so much from real life experiences about how to love another person and even more about how NOT to treat one another.
Because of our past pain, we have not had a day yet where we have taken each other for granted. We both feel indescribably blessed to worship a God of second chances...and the fact that we have five beautiful children is proof of His indescribable love and perfect planning for our lives.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
