Eleven years ago today B asked me to marry him. When I look back over the past eleven years I can not believe how good God has been to us. When we got married we had only been together a year, so to say our first year of marriage was tough is a little bit of an understatement. Follow that first year up with a move to a new town, buying a first home, a miscarriage, then finally getting pregnant with our first child and it makes that first year look like a cake walk! We've certainly seen our share of heartache and disappointment, but God has been so faithful to bless us through it all with joy and a deep abiding love for each other. I will never know why He saw fit to bless me with such a wonderful husband, because I certainly did nothing to deserve it!
B, the past eleven years have been the most wonderful years of my life. You have loved me when I was unlovable, you have been so patient with me, always there encouraging me with such gentle words and you have shown me what love really is. You are a wonderful father to our children and a servant leader to this family. I love you so very much more than I did eleven years ago. I had no idea what was in store when I said yes, but it has been so much more than I ever could have imagined. I am so glad you asked! I love you!
