Through the years

Well, babe I know you don't like me to post pics of us on here but today I thought you wouldn't mind. 

Happy Anniversary! 9 years and still counting!!!

It is hard to believe it has been 9 years. It seems as if 9 years is nothing but considering all that we have been through, you would think it would be much longer than that. 

Just in our first 2 years of marriage we've experienced 3 moves, a church split, severe health issues that almost put me in the hospital, me not be able to work due to health issues, a job loss,  doctor giving me the okay to work part time on the day hubby lost his job, doctors telling us we would never have a baby, a new church home, new careers, and yet another move. WHEW, I am tired! 

The next few years we lost loved ones, watched divorce happen and marriages begin. We had many many doctor visits about having a family. Traveled alone. Traveled with friends. Bought a house. Made it a home. Watched babies being born. Seen the death of three babies. Attended the funeral of one. Cried with friends. Laughed with them too. Said goodbye to friends. Prayed over our nephew who was born at 24 weeks. Prayed over our friends baby who was born at 23 weeks. Mourned with our friends who had miscarriages. Babysat many many kids. Said goodbye to a career. Heart attacks of loved ones. Camping. More traveling. Rejoicing of our own pregnancy. Rejoicing of our friend's pregnancy. Grateful for a healthy baby boy. Grateful for the phone call from a friend's long awaited adopted of their baby daughter. Prayer groups. Play dates. The screams and laughters of a toddler. Family trips. 

That is just to name a few. Good times and bad. I am so grateful to have walked along your side during those precious times. 

Love you....
