35 years of marriage.


My darling Bokkie. Our journey as husband and wife started on 31 March 1979.  This year we have been married for 35 years...considering that I was only 18 when I married...that is a life time.  What a journey this has been.  We packed a lot of life into the past 35 years...and it still doesn't feel that long.  There is so many reasons why I love you.
  1. I love that you are a man after God's own heart.
  2. I love that you make me laugh...often at myself.
  3. I love that you are my very best friend.
  4. I love that you are my soul mate and my prayer partner.
  5. I love that you always bring out the best in me.
  6. I love that I can be myself with you and that you are never shocked by what I do or say.
  7. I love that your hand always finds mine.
  8. I love how we can talk without saying a word.
  9. I love the way you see me.  Sometimes I wish I can see myself through your eyes.
  10. I love how we complete each other's sentences.
  11. I love that God is a priority in your life.
  12. I love the fact that you love me despite my faults.
  13. I love that the same things are important to both of us.
  14. I love that you are a tease and still catch me so many times.
  15. I love the way the room lights up when you enter it.
  16. I love that we can sit together for hours in silence and be comfortable.
  17. I love the way we cuddle before we fall asleep.
  18. I love that we fit so perfectly together.
  19. I love that you catch me when it feels that my life is falling apart.
  20. I love it that you always see the positive in every situation.
  21. I love that we are both active and adventurous.
  22. I love that we dance together beautifully.
  23. I love it that we are a great team together.
  24. I love it that you still write me love notes.
  25. I love that you still walk in some days with a rose gripped between your teeth.
  26. I love it that you have such a wonderful sense of humour.
  27. I love it that we are going to grow old together.
  28. I love that you show affection towards me even in public.
  29. I love the fact that you will choose me again...if you had a choice.
  30. I love you for always being concerned about me.
  31. I love your sensitivity when I am feeling down.
  32. I love you for being the best daddy I have ever seen.
  33. I love you for showing me the Father heart of God in everything you do.
  34. I love it that you are such an amazing Oupa to our little ones.
  35. I love it that you are MINE.

This list can go on and on....  I am so blessed that the Lord brought you into my life when I was just a girl.  I am blessed that you are my safe place and the one I can turn to when things are tough.  I will always love you.

xoxo
