Happy Anniversary

Today, Chris and I celebrate being married for 8 years. Many things have changed in those eight years...we have moved 3 (Chris says 4) times, had a job change, had 4 children, owned 3 cars, have gained and lost several pounds, & many others.

They have been 8 great years. Chris is a hard worker and strives to do the best he can in all he does. He loves the Lord and loves the students that he has been blessed to work with. He is a great Dad...patient, loving, rough, gentle, kind, FUN and so much more.

He is a great husband. Willing to help do anything. This past weekend I went to a baby shower and when I got home the house was clean, laundry was going & he was replacing some hardware in our kitchen and laundry room. He is always telling me that he loves me and reminds me that what I do is important and it does make a difference. I have been blessed with so much. When I would think of who my husband might be and what marriage was like I NEVER expected it to be like this. I have been blessed more than I could have ever dreamed or imagined.

"This is the Lord's doing and it is marvelous in (my) our eyes."

I love you more than you will ever know and more than I could ever express in words or actions. You are such a blessing to me and example to me. Thank you for how you are always seeking to do right. Thank you for seeing the best in me when all I see are the faults. Thank you for being such an example of Christ's love. I am blessed to be your wife. To think that God chose me out of all the women in the world to walk with you and be by your side is amazing. I pray that this year I will be a prized jewel to you & I pray that you will be able to say that you have found a "good thing." I look forward to the next years ahead.
My heart is yours!!!!!
