It's amazing to me that it has been 14 years since I married my sweetheart.
A lot has happened in that time. 4 kids, 5 moves, and 25 million laughs.
Although my life looks different than I thought it would when I was 12, the important parts of life, are just like I imagined. I married a man of God, he loves me, he deals with me, he laughs at my jokes, he listens to me, and he even cleans for me.
I have 4 amazing children. They are full of life. They have a sparkle in their eyes. They aren't jaded. They are pure. And the best part....at least for a couple more years, they love me, and actually want to be around me.
Most of all, I am grateful. I am grateful Bj loves me unconditionally. He doesn't mind all my imperfections. He has taught me to let go of my insecurities. Whenever I am feeling weak, he buoys me up. He inspires me to be a better person, by being the better person. When I am neurotic, he soothes me. He truly is my partner. And even though I am getting older and the years are showing, he tells me I am beautiful.
I am grateful!
