Eight years ago today I became a Mrs.
June 23, 2001 was, quite literally, the best day of my entire life. If I had a time travel machine, my wedding day would be on the short list of times I would travel back to.
Last night we spent our pre-anniversary evening in a way we didn't plan. (Don't worry I'm not going to get scandalous on you.) Elijah got the flu, and every couple of hours there was more fermented dinner to clean up. My wonderful husband got up with me every time to help out. And at the 1:15 a.m. cleaning, he sweetly turned to me.
"Happy Anniversary, baby."
I was overwhelmed with gratefulness. Sure there was nothing glamorous about the situation, but here we were doing life together...the good and the bad. And my husband was not only serving us, but being sweet to me in the middle of it.
God's grace is the reason our marriage is what it is. Without Him, we wouldn't have a marriage. What a gift!!
