I have mentioned Adam here and there before. I have gone into more detail in posts concerning our anniversary or marriage but I haven't really talked about who he is as a person.
Adam is loyal and giving and sincere. Adam does not have to "prove himself" nor does he have to be the center of attention. Adam has a kind heart and a great sense of humor.
Adam is by far one of the most caring and selfless people I have had the privilege of meeting. When I think back on when I first met him, he wonders, and so do I (admittedly), what I initially saw in him. He was a scruffy, 19 year old, who wasn't real concerned with school and more concerned with having fun. But, he was nice and took the time to listen and get to know me.
That was almost ten years ago and we, along with our relationship, have changed and evolved drastically. He has become driven and motivated. He is a hard-worker and will do anything for those he cares about.
With Adam gone this summer, it has given me the opportunity to reflect on a lot of things but really learn to appreciate who Adam is.
While I blog this pregnancy, you have probably read that I have been moody and irrational at times and you have also probably read how Adam is practically a saint for putting up with me when I haven't treated him the best. It is incredible to see the amount of patience he has for me and this makes me love him more because I know he will be an incredible father. Experiencing how caring and protective he has been throughout this pregnancy makes me appreciate him more as a husband, friend, and a person.
While I edge toward the final stage of this pregnancy, I realize I need to show my appreciate for Adam more because I know it will be shown less once the baby is here.
Happy 26 weeks and happy knowing Adam for eight years!
