Happy Anniversary!


Today, Sam and I have been married seven years! It seems like only yesterday that we met. And yet, we've been through so much and learned so many things about each other, that it seems as though we've known each other our entire lives!

Who would have thought that we would end up in Texas? In the early years of our marriage, we talked about moving to Colorado, Alaska (at least Sam talked about it!), and Washington, but never did we mention Texas. Even a year ago, we would have laughed if someone said we would be living in Texas soon! But God had greater plans for us than we even acknowledged. He always does, doesn't He?

Being married to Sam has been a fun journey. He always makes me laugh, even when I don't want to. He never lets me be a grouch. He puts up with my morning cheerfulness and my insisting that breakfast is a fun meal. He encourages me when I'm feeling down and makes me feel important. Sam teaches me forgiveness and mercy, things that don't come as naturally to me. He eats ice cream with me at night, and makes runs to dairy queen when we need blizzards. He adores our children. He listens patiently when Henry is telling him a story, and Sam always has a kiss for Jonah when he asks for one. He always has time for his parents. He can accomplish more in a 24 hour period than most people get done in a week.

I love you Sam, and I always will. I thank God every day for bringing us together and making us a family. I am so blessed to be your wife.

Such a beautiful post. Congratulations!

I know what you say is true about Sam's ability to accomplish a week's worth of work in 24 hours. What's the secret to getting him over at our needy, needy abode?
