Years ago, I remember thinking that I may never get married-then I met you.
It's hard to believe we've been together for 6 years now. We both know the last two years have been the hardest of our relationship. A lot of this has to do with my struggle with alcohol. I'm not proud of the things I've put you through.
You didn't deserve any of it. But, you consistently showed up for me. You loved me when I was wasn't easy to love.
Alcohol and mental illness have stolen a lot of things from me. One of them being my confidence and self-esteem. You've never stopped believing in and helping me remember my worth.
I know it hasn't been easy to love me recently. I'm not the girl you fell in love with. Although, I can say I'm slowly coming back to her. You can take part of the credit for this.
I'm currently working on the steps in AA and I've come across the 8th step which asks me to make amends for my past. I can only hope that you'll accept my sincerest apology.
I recently told someone that I get excited to wake up because I get to see and kiss your face. That's the truth. I can't accurately express how much I love you.
You are the kindest, most patient human I know. You have the purest heart and make me feel seen, heard and loved daily.
I'm lucky you're mine. I'll love you forever Bear.
