14 years


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!
