There is love...

Nineteen years ago today, I married my best friend and the true love of my life. Last night, we stayed up until midnight just so we could officially kick off our anniversary together. We bundled up under our down comforter, held hands and giggled, reminisced, and got misty-eyed as we inventoried those last 19 years. We recounted how we were a full 10 years into the marriage before we asked God to be the center of it and we prayerfully thanked Him for patiently waiting on us to invite Him in. We remembered the births of both our girls and what it felt like to welcome them into the love of our marriage as we became a family. We bemoaned the fact that our physiques were certainly not what they were when we met, dated and married. But mostly, we just laughed. God has given us a lot to laugh about in our nearly two-decade union. At 12:36 am, I could barely keep my eyes open anymore. As I drifted off to sleep, he whispered, "I'd do it all again. I love you". Happy anniversary Dane. I'd do it all again too. I love you.
