18 years of marriage. Wow, how did that happen? I blinked and all of a sudden, I have all middle school and above children and a husband with more grey than black in his beard. It was a super long blink apparently.
For 18 years , we have weathered life together. Really, we have been a couple for 21 years as we lived together for 3 years prior to getting married. Has it been easy? I think I’ve been pretty transparent that it hasn’t been a walk in the park. Did I envision that our lives would be like this at this point? Nope, not in a million years . Am I ever so thankful that God had a much better plan than me.
He’s not perfect but I never doubt he loves me. He’s a phenomenal provider for his family and a rock star Dad. I sometimes pinch myself to see if I’m dreaming . His giving servant heart sometimes has him saying yes to things that take him away from his family but who can fault him for that? He never hesitates when I come up with crazy plans that involve no sleep on his part or acting the fool at Disney. He helps out my side of the family without hesitation and with no prompting from me.
He is a great family man who loves his family very much! I am blessed to be doing life beside him. Now if I could get him to shave that beard, life would be perfect!
