Awed

Today at lunch, my husband was recounting to me a conversation he had with a lady he works with.  During the course of this conversation, she said to him, “You know, you’re the happiest married person I’ve ever met.  That’s how I always think of you.”

The feelings that tumbled over me when he told me this were awe and wonder and a sense of profound gratefulness for being so deeply, deeply blessed.  I know I’m not the perfect wife; I’m (far too) well aware of how incredibly flawed I am, and yet somehow my husband not only puts up with me and my idiosyncrasies and quirks and downright irritating little pecadilloes, but manages to radiate sincere contentment and satisfaction and happiness throughout the whole process.  He is the most generous, selfless, determined, funny, patient, understanding man I’ve ever met, and I’m so grateful that he picked me to share his life with.
