God knew just what he was doing when he put you into my life.
He knew I would need a cheerleader. Someone positive and encouraging. Someone to continuously push me forward.
He knew I would need someone low-key. To keep me balanced. To help me slow down.
He knew I would need someone funny. Someone to crack a joke when I am taking things too seriously.
He knew I would need a teacher. Someone full of knowledge, ready to dispose it onto me.
He knew I would need someone easy-going. Someone to put up with my whimsical ideas and grand plans.
He knew I would need a partner. Someone who will pick up my slack without a saying a word.
He knew I would need a rock. Someone to anchor myself to when the seas got rough.
(Almost) ten years ago when we first said “hello” on the football field at California Lutheran University, I didn’t know you were these things. (I just thought you were cute).
I didn’t know I needed these things.
But God knew.
And I am forever grateful.
Thank you for being my person. Then, now and always.
I love you.
P.S. We need more photos together 😉
