eight years

Today is our eighth wedding anniversary.
In honor of that, I would like to transcribe a card written by my husband that I received on our fifth anniversary. It is the collected and random thoughts of my husband written in every available space of the card.

Amor: Today is a wonderful day. I have been counting the days, but without a doubt, it does not seem to be five years. Everything is as nice as before but with a lot more satisfaction and pride in our marriage. I am happy to have you by my side all the time.
To know that you are a great mother keeps me calm and that every time I make a mistake, you talk to me and teach me something new.
You are my angel (I love you).
I don't know what it is, but to talk about our marriage is a great thing. It makes me feel a huge happiness (never ends).
Anthony adds beauty to our relationship and it is because you are his mamá.
(side note: I was pregnant with Irene at this time)

I love to come back (from work) and see you after five years of hating Mondays just because I will not be with you.
I truly believe everything is so fresh---to do things together all the time.
We have accomplished a lot of things in five years because this is what we wanted---because we felt in love each other---because we are willing to sacrifice, in order to make this work.
This is wonderful and I never thought marriage would be like this. Let's give each other---you, me, Anthony and Irene---100 more years.
With all my heart R. E. B. M. (8/21/04)
