Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder today...


Nine years ago today I married Joel. And he married me. We married each other.

For nine years he has been a wonderful husband. He is the perfect guy for me and we complement each other nearly perfectly. I am so thankful to have married a man who loves the Lord and gives very high priority to keeping the commandments and just being a good person. I am so thankful to have married a man who loves me so much he would literally do anything for me. I am so thankful to have married a man who follows his dreams. I am so thankful to have married a man who is willing to cook dinner just about every night and is darn good at it. I am so thankful to have married a man who wanted children, and once they were here, is a better father than I could have imagined. I am so thankful to have married a man who takes care of me through thick and thin.

That's not to say he's perfect...we certainly have our hard moments, like any married couple. But I think that's what makes it even better. As we work through the difficult times, we only come out of it as stronger people with an even stronger commitment to one another.

I was thinking today how nine years is an awfully long time. Nine years before I got married I was but a young girl of 15, wondering who my Prince Charming would turn out to be. There was a lot of life lived in those nine years before I married Joel. Sometimes it doesn't seem as if I've experienced nearly as much in the nine years since, but I have.

And I am happy we experienced it all together.
