All of me….

by CCervenka, WOODRIDGE, IL

That’s the title of our wedding song….ALL OF ME. And that’s what my husband is to me. We’ve known each other since we met in high school. We’ve been together almost 27 years now. He has seen me at my worst and my best and he’s always loved ALL OF ME. We’ve had struggles like any couple, we’re raising our son with strong family values and through everything I know Michael loves ALL OF ME. He proposed on Valentine’s Day and we were married on Valentine’s Day. In fact on 2/14/07 we will celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Mic is kind, thoughtful, loving and above all – a gentleman. His heart is good and no matter how small a gesture, I know it is sincere when it’s from him. While I see the years going by (faster and faster) I thank God EVERY DAY for putting this man in my life. Who would’ve guessed as teenagers that we would still love each other and want to be with each other. No one else makes me laugh more or feel more grateful. He leaves me notes, flowers, treats. He knows when I need space and when I need a hug. Somehow he knows ALL OF ME. Because of how he treats me, I feel I want him to have ALL OF ME. I know that life isn’t easy at times but having my valentine by my side makes every moment worth living. I could go on and on about the tragedies in our lives or the thousands of loving gestures Mic has bestowed upon me, but I’m sure you will hear that in many of these stories. I just want you to know that I love my husband more and more every day. My world includes many loved ones and friends, but only my husband shares a special piece of my heart that no one else ever will. Through sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, forsaking all others, I promise forever and always to my love, Michael, ALL OF ME.
