The Best Movie Line Ever...

" You COMPLETE me." You know the movie - Renee Zellwegger and Tom Cruise in Jerry McGuire. Love her. Hate him. It's still an awesome line, and if you have ever felt that in your life, you already know how true this statement is.
Yesterday, my soul was once again complete. My husband sailed back into my life with that half cocked smile of his. He just has a way of making everything happy, the sun truly does shine brighter when he's here with me. I can lay down my head at night, and it now longer matters how the wind howls, I know nothing bad can happen as long as he's here with me. It's like his very presence is a bullet proof vest that I wear with such absolute faith and certainty.
Recently, my sister in law has gone through some very difficult and troubling things in her own marriage. I feel so deeply for her. I can't imagine what it is to wake up and never feel safe again. I can't imagine finding out that everything is just one big lie, and not knowing how I could ever get myself out of the web again.
I thank God every night and every day for my husband. He truly completes me. No, he isn't perfect, neither am I, but I think that maybe together... well, together, we come pretty close to perfect happiness. I never want to take that for granted.

I know what you mean about feeling safe and complete when he's home...I actually recently found out that our coming to Italy was almost delayed because he was almost deployed! He can't tell me anything about it, because the guys that were sent out still aren't back yet....which means I'd still be twiddling my thumbs in Oklahoma!!! I'm SO greatful we got over here when we did! And I'm glad your hunny is home! :)
