Today I have been married to the man of my dreams for thirteen years. This is what he wrote on Facebook today:
Thirteen years ago today, I started on an amazing adventure, with the best partner that I could ever imagine. Together we have laughed often, cried rarely, and loved constantly. These years have passed in the blink of an eye, yet I feel like I have always been here, where I was meant to be. I must say, I had a fantastic life before I ever met Jerry Ann. But that was all just a preview. Since she came into my life, it has been turned up to 11!
And not only did I become a husband that day, but I became a dad. (Well, I say that, but in reality I feel like being a dad is something that you have to earn every day. ) It has been an incredible joy to spend these past 13 years as part of this family, and I am humbled that they chose me.
Happy Anniversary, my Beloved Jerry Ann!
I cherish this man, and all that we have together…and there is no way I could add anymore to what he stated.
Do you have this? My David is this for me. He continually supports me and encourages me.
I am completely grateful for him. God chose him for me, and I thank God for him every day.
Carmen and I went to one of her friends weddings this past weekend. It was a really sweet wedding, and had lots of country charm in the decorations. One of the things they had guests do was to write down marriage advice on these pre-printed cards.
Mine was very simple. Hold hands while speaking of anything difficult. It is hard to be angry or defensive with someone if you are holding hands. It means you are in this together. Whether it be finances or the storm that just cause three things to crash, it means you are in this together. Together.
Touching means that you care for one another. That nothing in this world can come between you. That is huge! David and I are both on the second time around in this marriage. We wanted to be able to conquer whatever came our way. Holding hands when talking about difficult things makes things seems reasonable. Obtainable. Doable. Together.
Always together. We can conquer anything together. Sometimes it is the hardest thing imaginable. I don’t want to confess that I haven’t been the best steward about spending. He doesn’t want to say what is bothering him about money or the house, or whatever. But we realize that holding each others hand makes us in it together. Marriage isn’t always the best day…it is getting through the worst day together.
Part of being married is sharing, right? I don’t mind sharing most things but when it comes to sharing a college, I normally don’t.
Today LSU Baseball is playing in the super regional in Omaha. The Razorbacks didn’t make it to the super regional, and being married to a LSU guy, I am supporting them. Well, and Carmen is going there as well. So being supportive of LSU isn’t that difficult really. So long as they aren’t playing my Razorbacks! Ha.
Happy Saturday, and Gueax Tigers!
