Une Confession D’amour (authored by Q)

I stumbled upon this excerpt by one of my favorite authors:

“The husband/wife relationship is the oldest and most pre-eminent of all human relationships. It predates and goes ahead of any other relationship, including parent/child, mother/daughter, father/son, and sister/brother. No relationship should be closer, more personal, and more intimate than that which exists between a husband and wife.Β  Such intimacy involves not only love, but also knowledge. A husband and wife should know each other better than they know anyone else in the world. They should know each other’s likes and dislikes, their quirks and pet peeves, their strengths and weaknesses, their good and bad qualities, their gifts and talents, their prejudices and blind spots, their grace and their character flaws. In short, a husband and wife should know everything about each other, even those undesirable traits that they hide from everyone else.”

I utterly agree with this statement. I, on this Valentine’s Day, I am blessed to have La as my wife and the love of my life. Not only do we have so much in common – we are both athletes, like eating healthy and spicy foods, we have the same musical tastes, we both hold the same Biblical and political views etc… – but we share the same ideals such as putting each other first especially before other family members.

La, thank you for saying yes when I proposed to you. Thank you for looking beyond my stoic demeanor and for loving me the way I am. Thank you for knowing me like no other person has or ever will. Thank you for allowing me to be your knight in shining armour everyday. Thank you for supporting my every endeavors and encouraging me to pursue my gifts and talents.

Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure.

La, voici ma confession d’amour: sache que je t’aimerai toujours ma belle!
