Ten years ago today, I married my best friend. The last ten years have brought us much change in our lives: cross country move, new jobs, children, and life’s challenging ups and downs. Through it all we have stayed strong, committed, and continued to laugh each day with each other.
I am thankful and blessed to be married to my best friend. My best friend for the last 14 years. Because of him I am a better woman, wife, mother. Because of Him I am a better wife, woman, mother.
“A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12
I am a firm believer, because of our faith in our God, our marriage is strong and committed. We have a strong friendship and a strong marriage. We are two big goof balls, not really the mushy romantic type. We love to laugh and laugh often. Reflecting back over the last ten years brings fond memories. We have endured many changes in our life and marriage. Good change. Change is good.
I love the above quote in the photo above. Hold hands every chance you can. Be the best you can be. Marry your best friend. Listen. Hug often. Care more. Love deeply. Treasure always. Be the first to say I’m sorry. Kiss good morning. Kiss and make-up. Kiss just because. Kiss goodnight. Always be willing to compromise. Respect one another. Be a team player. Remember why you fell in love. Make a promise to each other to find time to be alone together. Don’t forget to laugh. Love each other.
