The Person

I am not the person I was when you married me.

That person was selfish.

That person did not know when to pick her battles.

That person did not know the feeling of becoming a Mommy.

That person had not experienced difficult times.

That person had never endured loss.

That person did not know what true tears of joy were.

That person did not know what it was like to feel helpless.

That person had not faced the challenge of marriage.

That person had never worn her heart on her sleeve.

That person needed to experience life.

That person has evolved and become something else…

She is confident.

She is sure.

She is determined.

She is the best version of herself.

She is the woman that grew with you over the years.

She is not the person you married.

She is exceptional.
