22 to forever
Saturday, March 07, 2020
Today, I reflect on the fact that my husband and I have been married 22 years. There are times when it feels like yesterday and times it feels like a lifetime. I don’t think anyone ever really knows what they are getting into when they say “I Do.”
They are in for work, compromise, frustration, and an emotional rollercoaster. But it’s the other parts that make everything worth it. I signed up for a friend, companion, confidant, supporter, cheerleader, promoter, mentor, teammate for the rest of our lives. I could not have asked for a better husband and father. He has strengths where I have weaknesses. God has blessed me far more than I ever deserved.
Unfortunately, I think that I have taken that gift for granted. I vow today, maybe 22 years too late, to appreciate every day, every experience, every adventure that I have with him.
