Well….its been awhile. This post isnt about my 5 month old bouncing bundle of fun Jax, but its about my bride.
As most of you know, i was married once before. I was in that situation from 99 to 04, and it taugh me alot about what i DIDNT want in a relationship. After i moved out, i was a general asshole(notlikenow) and i didnt have a lot of good things to say about the fairer, split-tailed sex.
Every woman that i encountered, was done so with that one sole purpose in mind. To take out my aggression and hurt with my penis. Lol. I can look back now, and see that i was so very wrong with how i acted. I let a whore of a woman turn me into a monster. And it wasnt until i moved here to lexington, that i changed.
Which brings me to my point.
I moved here in april of 2006. I was sick of my ex-roommates wife hooking me up with crazy girls who always ended up with issues, so i said fuck it and posted an ad on Yahoos’ personal section. I read a lot of ads and how they were written, and they all just seemed like “blah”. So i kept i simple, with sentences that described my likes and dislikes, and by the time i was done, it was about two pages long.
Now, i did meet a few women off there, and yes, they all ended up a lil/lot crazy, and Yahoo had a random roll kinda thing, that you could take a chance on, and Leighas’ profile kept popping up. But i didnt pay for the service, so i couldnt send her a direct message. But i had hid my email address within my ad, and the title line, “follow the white rabbit ” in hopes that the lucky ones would figure it out.
And Leigha got it.
I first met Leigha in person on july 19th, and my mom passed on August 18th. I called Leigha at her work to let her know, and she offered to go back with me. I knew in my mind right then and yhere, that this woman, whom i had been dating just shy of a month, was the woman i wanted to spend the rest of my life with. I told he how much that meant to me, but that is not how i wanted her to meet my family.
But fast forward a little while.
We married in august of 08, on my dads birthday, and had our first child, our son, december of 2010. Sure, we have had our share of ups and downs, but what married couple doesnt? We dont fight. Never have. We just work it out. We are so similar its scary. I have always heard that opposites attract, but that is soooooo not true in our case. My wife, whom i still to this day, and will continue forever, refer to as my bride. It is my term of endearment that i mean with every ounce of my being.
I can honestly say, with nothing but truth and sincerity in my heart, that before i met Leigha, i was probably only 60% of a man. She has completed me in ways that i can never put into words. I know that she will probably read this and tear a lil bit, but that isnt the point. Every time i look at her, from across the room, or across the bed, she leaves me breathless and wanting. Every. Single. Time.
She has regiven me the gift of life.
Made me have meaning in this world.
Instilled hope in a heart that is normally black as pitch.
She is the cheese to my macaroni.
And she is the goddess to my religion, which i bow to every day in worship and thanks.
All in all, i just wanted to say thank you Leigha, for giving a man like me a new breath to breathe, and filling that void in me, that no other could ever hope to.
I knew true love the minute i laid eyes on you, and i feel that same way everyday.
You are a wonderful mother, wife, lover, confidant, inhouse therapist, verbal filter, and my best friend.
Thank you for giving us a beautiful child, and for giving me your heart.
I’ll love you till i can no longer walk this world.
You keep me inspired.
