I tell this to My husband all the time. So proud of the man you are. Love you JWM! Remember how far you've come, not just how far you have to go. You are not where you want to be, but neither are you where you used to be.
I am strong because I am weak. I am beautiful because I know my flaws. I am a lover because I am a fighter. I am fearless because I have been afraid. I am wise because I have been foolish. & I can laugh because I've known sadness.
