9 Years Ago...

Today I married my best friend 9 years ago.

To say that you've had to put up with me is an understatement. There has been times in our marriage where leaving would seem to be a sweet relief for you. But you love me. And are committed to me. And are willing.

 We'll make it through this. And all of the struggling, tears, grief and fear will be a reminder of what we can survive TOGETHER; it will be a reminder of the journey the Lord has taken us on, TOGETHER; and one day we'll get to a place where we can PRAISE Him for that journey.

 But until then, thank you. Thank you for not giving up on me. Thank you for our 4 sweet, wonderful children. Thank you for a love I never would have thought would be mine. I have such gratitude to the Lord for you.

I love you.
