10th Anniversary

(warning: long slide show!)

Thursday we celebrated 10 years together!  I have 10 unique bouquets of flowers around my house (from my sweet husband) to remind me of all our blessings.

We spent the day reminiscing about these past years.  How can you sum up this amount of time in one post?  You can't.

A few land marks include living in 8 different places, 3 cities and 2 states, earning 3 degrees, having 3 children, Abby's 13 surgeries, 220+ nights in a hospital, numerous ER visits; owning: 4 vehicles, 4 motorcycles, 3 jetskis, 3 houses, 1 farm, loving 1 dog, traveling to over 19 states, camping a few times and learning deeply about this life.

The learning about life bit is where we find ourselves dwelling on the memories.  We've learned to cry together, hear bad news, wait, move, allow dreams to die, embrace new ones, rejoice together, work, read, make friends, build a home and rest together.  Most importantly we are still learning to pray together and trust that our heavenly Father is able to carry our burdens, wipe away our tears, provide for our needs and comfort us.  He is walking this road with us.

So many memories in what seems like a very short time.

This special day reminded us how thankful we are for the gift of a committed, loving and giving spouse!  And today as we start a brand new year, it's fun to imagine what new memories we will make together, as a family.
