Eight Years


Eight years ago yesterday, I married the Love of my life.  This week has hardly been what most would consider a romantic anniversary week. :)  Many events have transpired, several of them less-than-pleasant.  But in the moments before I fell asleep last night, as I nestled close to Matt I realized with a smile that the "unpleasantness" of the week has given our Love a chance to shine more than ever.  I have felt more loved than ever by a husband who is kind and compassionate, patient and understanding.

We are One.  We are joyful.  We are together.  And regardless of where life has brought us, we have always arrived together.  I wish there were better words to express the absolute, adoring Love I have for him. 

I wake up every day so glad to be next to him.  I feel like part of myself leaves when he goes to work.  I feel whole when he comes home.  When I lie down next to him at night, I feel pure joy.  I truly cannot wait to live out my life, and an eternity beyond it, with him. 

If all women could have a Love like this, what a different world it would be.

Blessed am I among women, and I know it.  :)

I am so happy for you guys. You have a strong love and bond and nothing can ruin that for you. The challenges and trials that we face in our lives help us to grow together and have stronger bonds. What joy there is in having these strong bonds and being wonderful examples for our children. We love you all. Happy belated anniversary!!
