He Loves Me Even When...

I recently had a conversation with a friend of mine who has been married much longer than I have. I don't remember exactly what she said or how she said it, but that conversation has been on my mind and this is what stuck with me: In 10 years you will not be the same person he married, and he will not be the same person you married 10 years ago. You will both be very different and hopefully deeper in love. You have to make the decision to continue to love each other, it's hard work, and it's worth it.

I can't believe how much each of us has changed already, but I feel like we're closer every day. Each trial, funny moment, fight, and adventure helps us understand each other better and makes us stronger.

He loves me even when....
  • I have a crazy moment and become completely overwhelmed by something that's really very simple. In loving husband words he tells me to chill out and there's no real reason to worry, and then I feel better. 
  • I wash his wallet and his iPod.
  • I dread football season.
  • We've been camping and I haven't showered or done my hair and makeup in several days.
  • I'm on a junkfood kick and there's only carmel popcorn for dinner. Or the opposite and I'm on a health food kick and make strange vegetable filled recipes. 
  • Wake up grouchier than Oscar.... and looking similar too.

Aww, how sweet! My poor husband still loves me when I walk around the house without makeup for days. :)

very true. it's funny how you're not the same people you were when you started out together, yet you grow closer together. God really does have a way of working things out just right. :)

That's the best. When you found someone who loves you even in those moments. Except last night I got overwhelmed with moving and everything being a mess and managed to overwhelm him too. I think moving out of the country is an overwhelmed level neither of us were ready for.
