in a world where true love is believed to be hard to find, in a world where love lives on the tip of the tongue and not in the heart, in a world where selfish act is popular than selfless act , this beautiful couple after 5 years of marriage going on 6 years still find every reason to celebrate each other.
The wife identified as Sarah Jake Robert’s on Instagram has this to say about her husband.
I was waiting for that dizzy love.
You know? That love that happens so fast it makes you dizzy.
That’s not what happened here.
Our love happened so fast it made me stand still.
It made me realize I’d been running my whole life. This love dared me to 𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗯𝗲 𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗹𝗹.
This time I didn’t fall in love.
𝗜 𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗼𝗱 𝗶𝗻 𝗹𝗼𝘃𝗲.
The longer I stood the more my fears disappeared.
I let him stand with me in my truth. I didn’t try to hide that the scars were there.
I let him stand with me in my dreams. I didn’t minimize them so they would seem like just a small idea.
I let him stand within my wounds. He covered me while I attempted to heal.
It wasn’t until the day I met you, Touré, that I stopped trying to fall in love and wanted to stand in love instead.
That dizzy love comes as fast as it goes. But the love that makes you stand is steady, sudden, but somehow slow.
You never question how you got there because their actions are breadcrumbs that show you the way.
I’m not hoping you fall in love. I’m praying you stand in love instead.
May you look back over your love story and see all the many ways you grabbed one another’s hand and stood when you wanted to run, laughed when you wanted to cry, cried when you wanted to laugh, and prayed when your hope threatened to die.
I pray you never forget how your love withstood the test of time.
