4 years ago today, I married the love of my life. I get that I’m lucky. I wish every woman could have the opportunity to spend every day with someone who loves and cherishes them as much as I know Phil cares for me. And I feel compelled to express that even moreso after watching this video. Be forewarned, this is a tear jerker.
God, it puts things into perspective. In the context of life today in this moment, I am so grateful to have met Phil. We have spent a total of 3533 days being each others partner and confidante. And I still look forward to when he walks through the door after work. No matter how bad my day or what life throws at me, I have Phil to talk me through it. I have someone that supports me in all my craziness.
There was a time for us when we were scared about the future and what it looked like. Phil’s health caused us a lot of concern and worry. And while I wouldn’t wish that on anyone, it did help us with perspective. At a young age, we got to really appreciate what being healthy is all about and what the important things in life are. That, for the most part, we spend a lot of time wasted worrying, stressing, or under appreciating other people. I want to live like Zack. What would the world look like if every day I just had pure love for others, nature, the present moment and every experience (good or bad)?
That’s all. And by that’s all, I mean that’s everything. That is what life is all about.
