Day 17: Water My Anniversary
I am hijacking today’s photo because today is my and the Hubs 3rd Anniversary.
That is a BIG DEAL!
On our anniversary I love to think about our wedding and how it was such a special, beautiful day. But every year the details blur a little more. I forget the placement of which groomsman with which bridesmaid. I can’t recall the flavor of our cake. Who sat where?
I remember before our wedding really doing some “soul searching” and thinking, “Can I really spend my everyday with him? Can I really be a good wife? How long is forever? Is this the kind of man I want to father my children?” And many, many other questions.
The bottom line was, yes. I loved him and meant every word I said when we said our vows.
If today self would have told January 17,2009 self that those wedding vows and feelings don’t mean anything on your wedding day , compared to depth and commitment you will feel toward him and your marriage in 3 years…wedding day self would have not understood.
Growing up, I didn’t understand that God made marriage. Not a man and a woman.
And I didn’t understand that neither man or woman can ever succeed in a achieving a successful marriage, with His blessings and gifts, without fully seeking Him in every aspect of the marriage.
I know that marriage is the hardest thing I have ever done.
I know that marrying my husband has changed me only for the better.
