Marriage Milestone

Today marks a crazy milestone, the first of the truest anniversary milestone in a marriage…the ten year anniversary!
In all honesty, it doesn’t feel like that long, yet it feels like forever! We’ve experienced buying our first home, having our first baby, then having a set of twins. We’ve endured incredible hardships (such hardships that would end a lot of marriages). We’ve experienced great loss together. We have moved away from the place we called home our entire lives.
In spite of the hardships, the losses, and the challenges…we made it!
I really can’t imagine my life without my husband. He truly is my rock, my one constant since I was 15 years-old. Our relationship is the epitome of unconditional love.
I’m moody, I am unpleasant at times, I can be lazy, and I’m especially selfish (let’s call a spade a spade). I’m not perfect but my husband has loved me through it all. He has put up with me through my pregnancies (both of which were pretty awful), he deals with me when I’m a crazy lunatic with PMS, he’s forgiven me for mistakes I’ve made. What more could I want or need?
I’ve never met a more honest person than my husband in all my life. I have always admired his honesty, integrity, and determination. When times get tough he has always stepped up to the plate. I am very thankful for that. He has sacrificed so much for me and our three children.
I’m not the best at expressing my genuine appreciation for him, but I am so thankful. I have no idea where I’d be without him.
I look forward to many more years together-watching our children grow and seeing what our future holds.
