From this day forward...


I promise to love, honor and cherish this man that God has given me. Seven years ago today we pledged our love in front of God, our family and many friends and it was one of the most wonderful days we have shared.
In recounting our days together it adds up to something like this...
7 years
4 cities
2 apartments
2 houses - one we rented, one we purchased
2 degrees - his Masters and my Associates
2 kids
1 purchased car
2 gallbladder surgeries
4 grandparent passings - 3 of mine last year, 1 of Jeremy's in 2004; not to mention the 2 we had while we dated/engaged
4 nephews and 1 niece being born
1 trip to Africa
A lifetime of memories, pictures, scrapbooks and blogs = PRICELESS
There are just not enough words to express how I feel about this man. He is a follower of Christ with all of his heart, truly loves me and our 2 boys. He studies hard. He is funny and smart and challenges me. He pushes me forward with loving hands. He doesn't act impulsively, yet has spontaneity at times. He thinks about others first and is sacrificial. He loves reading and has a collection of books to prove it. He is tedious about details, particularly pertaining to our house. He works hard for our marriage and I love that. He works hard and people respect him.
As I have said many times before...I can't imagine walking through this life with anyone else by my side. Thank you, Lord, I am often reminded how much I don't deserve him...but by God's grace, I get to have him!
Jeremy, I love you.
