To My Future Husband: Things I Don’t Take For Granted

Dear Future Husband,

I have a tendency to get caught up in the everyday. I worry about household chores when I could be relaxing with you. I obsess over work instead of falling asleep peacefully. I make to-do lists in my head while eating dinner. I am an observant, appreciative person, but sometimes I am not very mindful.

I know sometimes it seems as if my mind is elsewhere. I know sometimes I may seem rushed. I just never want you to feel as if I take anything in our life for granted.

I might not always show it, but there is so much in our lives that I am grateful for. I relish the tiny ordinary moments. I love when I wake up in the middle of the night and hear your breathing wax and wane, to feel you near me. I love that you are a man of action; that you usually beat me to a sink full of dishes and ignore me when I request you leave them and let me finish. I love watching you smile when something funny happens on a tv show or a movie we like. I love seeing you play outside with the kids. I love how well you clean up the bathroom after shaving or cutting your hair. I love that you give me a hug and a kiss before you leave the house every day.

I want you to know that I might not always say it or show it, but I always recognize the greatness in you.

Thank you for being my partner in life.
Love always,
Your Future Wife
