We had a lot of fun, but to be honest I don't think we fully appreciated each other. Humans have an amazing ability to see the new things. We constantly notice what has changed and what is new.
Unfortunately we are not very good at remembering the amazing things we already have. When Sarah planned her Europe trip with her Mom and sister I spent all my time leading up to the trip worrying about taking care of our two boys by myself. I thought about what food to make for them, what kinds of activities I could do with both of them at the same time etc.
Somehow in all that planning I totally failed to plan for how much I would miss Sarah. The morning she left I gave her a hug and suddenly had a pang of loss. Since she has been gone I have seen or heard something that reminds me of her basically every single hour and have to fight back the tears (I don't want the boys thinking that their dad is going crazy).
So even though we are much further apart than normal this anniversary, I have never felt more in love. I ache for the chance to kiss those sweet lips and see her make our boys laugh.
I love you more than I know how to write, and more than any of the songs I ever wrote for you. You are the best Sarah.
