HERE'S TO THE MAN WHO LOOKED AT ME, LONGINGLY, WHEN I WAS A SLOTHFUL, GLUTTONOUS WOMAN, AND TREATED ME LIKE HIS QUEEN.
Here's to the man who saw me at 145, pursued me passionately, and never stopped, even when I was at my worst.
Here's to the man who stood by my side through each and every "diet" I attempted... and ultimately failed.
Here's to the man who gained weight when I got pregnant and called it his "sympathy belly" just to make me feel better... and maybe to comfort himself a little, as well.
Here's to the first man to ever make me feel truly beautiful, and to love me for WHO I AM, not what I look like, or what I can do for him.
Here's to the man who saw me push him away in my brokenness and shame, and refused to give up on me.
