Me: 30 ~ Her (FR2012): 29
I don't get annoyed; I appreciate it a lot when I hear it. Especially if sincere, which it always is. I did have those thoughts early on for a couple months after D-Day though.
I, however, still struggle sometimes to say it back. There are moments where this sadness I feel is too much and I can't reciprocate the sentiment. I typically will just nod in acknowledgement. She is always gracious either way and accepting. She knows I love her.
With time those moments are fewer.
Together: 11 years, 2 children
D-Day 1: April 19, 2012, D-Day 2: September 13, 2015
Surrender to the truth of life.
