Gratituesday - 19 years...

19 years ago I married the most amazing man.

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

~I Corinthians 13:4-7

Thank you, Dan, for putting up with me, indulging my whims (sometimes), tolerating my moodiness, telling me I'm beautiful when I don't feel so much that way, and for still being here. (Everything :))

I pray that more and more I will become the woman -- the helpmeet -- that God designed for me to be for you. I pray that I will grow more and more content with who you are and where we are and that I will stop trying to take the wheel. I pray that God will change me and take away my pipe dreams. I pray that I will love YOU more.

For 19 years you have known me; there is no one who knows me better. Thank you for loving me despite myself.

Happy Anniversary!

For the rest of you, go ahead and click here and here for a peek as well as a good laugh at some old pics of us--mullet and poofy 80's bangs--haha! :)

    I am sure you look back and you see where Our Lord has shown you, has molded you , has changed you to become the woman He wanted you to be for the partner He chose for you.

    Enjoy this new year. May it be filled with joy and new memories.
