I have been in a relationship with my husband for a long time. We met in the 90s and have been together since. I’ll never forget how I felt when I was hoping that he would want my phone number. The feeling of excitement and nerves were so amazing—something I never felt before. I sensed that he was special—he was always glowing to me. Now, after the time that we’ve been together and I look back at our relationship, I see that there was indeed—and still is a glowing aura around him at all times.
He has always protected me. He has always made me feel like I can do anything. He has always stood up for me. He is strong. He is confident. I always feel loved. I feel grateful to even know him. We have been through much—and yet, every day feels like I just met him. It’s an unending cycle of love.
He is a good man—the epitome. Thank you for being here, Shawn.
“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are.”
