9 Years and Counting

30 06 2011

I’m sitting here at my computer, it’s 11:43 at night.

My hubby has long been asleep. the house is quiet and I’m listening to the sprinklers outside the window as I write this and think back on the past 9 years.  9 years ago my life changed forever.  9 years ago today I took my marriage vows to an incredible man.   9 years doesn’t seem long in comparison to some things, but these years mean the world to me.

Don’t get me wrong, we have had major battles and problems to overcome…some I thought would be the end of our marriage.  We’ve broken each others hearts on more than one occasion. But, through the grace of Christ and our true love and commitment to each other, we’ve learned to trust each other and to love each other even more deeply.  I’m so glad we both stuck around to fight it out and grow in our bond.  We have the most blessed life. It’s challenging, beautiful,  imperfect and joyful and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

So Happy Anniversary Jason.   You are truly my best friend, I love you and I’m looking forward to the rest of our lives together!

Here are a few of my favorite moments together…
