It would be an understatement to say I’m thankful for what Eric and I have. I feel blessed beyond measure, grateful to infinity and beyond, and honestly I can’t imagine this life without him in it. He’s my rock and so much more. It’s not always rainbows and butterflies. It’s work, in the best way possible. It’s the best kind of labor of love because we both want it to work. We’re in it for the long haul. An end isn’t an option for us, and that makes all the difference in the world when two people in a marriage believe that.
Christ is our center, our focus, individually and together. That brings us together to fight battles, rather than each other. We know each other, and consistently make an effort to know each other better with each passing day. He loves my encouragement and cooking, and I love a meaningful hand-written note and a back rub. He is the calm to my storm and I often add a little bit of crazy to his ordinary. Our prayer is to never stop dating each other, have our home be a place of restoration and peace, and continually recognize the blessings God gives us on a daily basis. Here’s to the years to come and the memories in the making!
