When you’re growing up, there is nothing more magical or beautiful than Christmas morning.
The only reason why I’d fall asleep the night before was so the morning would come sooner. I remember shaking from all the excitement!
Who would have thought that one day, love would feel like that?
When you’re a child, being a good girl is important for the whole year, because that meant that Santa will bring you gifts.
When you grow up, you continue being that good girl hoping that one day someone will appreciate your effort.
Growing older comes with fighting a lot of temptation to hate, because the pain is so unbearable sometimes.
But what happens when you decide to treat everyone with kindness and forgiveness?
At one point, God sends you an angel in the form of a man. A man so precious that he heals all your wounds without even knowing.
You don’t even know what you’ve done for me throughout these years.
You’re my Christmas-morning type of love.
There was a time when I believed that nothing could feel as good as the morning of Christmas and the safety of my family.
You remind me of the smell of fresh baked cookies.
It’s something so familiar, yet it always brings me so much joy.
I know you probably think it’s weird to compare you to sweets, but my heart tells me that this is exactly what you are.
On Christmas morning, sweet fragrances would overtake all of our senses.
The only smell that has ever made me feel that safe and sound is the smell of you.
There is something so soothing and familiar about it. That’s why I love cuddling up to you on cold nights and letting myself get lost in your touch.
You even manage to not make me feel nostalgic whenever I look back on celebrating this holiday with my family.
Somehow, I always have a part of that family love with me whenever you’re near.
You came to me at a time when I truly needed a miracle.
Back then, I thought that nothing could ever feel as enchanting as the holiday season.
You proved me wrong – it’s just like one of those cheesy Hollywood movies.
It’s like you have superpowers. You know me better than I know myself.
There is nothing that I ever tried to hide from you and even if I did, I think you’d see right through me.
You bring me so much closer to who I am as a person.
What would I have done without you?
You know what? I don’t even want to know the answer to that question. I just want to be able to love you unconditionally for the rest of my days.
There was nothing in my life hinting that I’d have this.
When you came into my life, I was at the point where I thought happiness and love weren’t for me.
I thought that happy endings were meant for other people. They met their soulmates who made them so undeniably happy.
At that stage of my life, I was just going from one bad relationship to the other.
Seems like it was all just in preparation for you and your love.
You know, better than anyone else, how easily hurt and discouraged I can get. Yet you never seem to have a problem with that.
In situations like these, you always have the best solutions and you never give up on me. For that, I am so extremely grateful to you.
You are the closest thing to magic I will ever experience.
The way your eyes sparkle when you look at me, how safe I feel when you embrace me, and how I can conquer the world when you’re next to me.
Those are all very good signs that this is something sent from God Himself. This relationship that you and I have is extremely special!
You are my Christmas-morning kind of love. You’re my greatest gift and the epic love of my life.
There is no one else I want to spend every major holiday with until my dying day.
What we have is special, different, and totally worth all the effort we’re putting in!
I know that you and I will figure things out even when things seem impossible.
I just know that we won’t give up on our love that easily, because we know how much we love each other.
There is a fear inside me that says that one day you will start to doubt my love.
If that day ever comes, just know that your doubts are unnecessary. This love is the most sacred thing I’ve ever had.
Knowing that I will spend the rest of my life with you makes me so grateful.
There are so many people in this world who don’t get to experience this kind of love in their entire lives.
People walk away from their soulmates, some even cry themselves to sleep on Christmas Eve because they miss them.
We will, fortunately, never ever have to go through that.
I can promise you, my love, that I will do whatever is in my power to keep you safe and sound. Your happiness is my biggest priority.
You are my Christmas-morning kind of love and I appreciate everything you do for us.
Thank you for always fighting for us and showing me that love isn’t just a myth.
All I ever want to be is a Christmas-morning kind of love to you, too.
