Hubby of Life

This is my absolute favorite picture of my husband. Hands down. It was taken by me during our Honeymoon. I was on an emotional high after our wedding weekend, where we made our love official before the church.

We got married in the church where I was raised. It was the place where I got saved. From the knitting in my mother’s young womb to the hairs on my teenage head, I was taught how much God knew about me. I also learned about God’s unconditional love for me. I was blessed to have the opportunity to get married in the very church where I prayed fervently and overcame so many youthful obstacles.

Marriage is by far the hardest thing I’ve ever tried to do. And on a great number of days I question my decision to say yes. And then I look at this photo and remember how much I love this chocolate man. I remember my friend. I remember his firm hold on my worst days. I remember how his commitment to me, us, and our family. I remember my hubby of life, my partner, my love, my cheerleader, and I simply cannot imagine doing life without him.

I remember asking God for a good man. I didn’t know he would be 6’4 with a funny last name. I didn’t know he would have one good dimple that was deeper than the ocean. I didn’t know he would meet me in New York City after being raised half-way around the world.

There was so much I didn’t know. And today, there is so much I have yet to learn.

One thing I know for sure is I still want to do life with him.

He’s going to flip out and say that I’m exposing him on social media. 🙄☺️

  1. Haha! This is awesome … my boyfriend is Ghanaian, and they do not do social media in no form! This made me laugh out loud when you said he would say you are “exposing him on social media!” So happy for you!
