You're Not Just My Boyfriend, You're My Saving Grace

"I didn't plan on falling in love with you, and I doubt if you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us." – The Notebook 

I was never understood or valued; I was constantly taken for granted and led to believe I would never be desirable. 

Before we met, I knew that angels existed and blessings came at the most unexpected times. What I didn't realize is that both can come at the exact same time, completely disguised. 

The timing of your arrival in my life was perfect, more "right" than my mind can fathom. 

You showed up at a moment when I needed you more than I knew. 

You redirected my focus onto the bigger picture, something I hadn't been paying attention to. 

In you, I found all the pieces of myself that I'd yet to discover. Pieces that longed to be unmasked and ones that I'd pushed aside to please people who didn't matter. 

Those people didn't deserve any part of me, but still, they drained me of the most important aspects of myself and made me forget who I truly was. 

I lost these pieces for awhile, but gained them back – and found even more – the moment I found you. 

You are my gift from above, my blessing in disguise, and my saving grace. 

You helped me see that I'm wanted, needed, and everything God intended for me to be. 

You rescued me from the unthinkable when I didn't even know I needed help.
