Today is our 9th Wedding Anniversary. I love it! What a journey we have been on in 9 years.
Owned 3 homes, sold 3 homes, moved 4 times, 3 cars, 7 pregnancies – 3 miscarriages, 3 healthy children. Unemployment, job promotions, job changes. Marital opportunities for growth. Deeper love and acceptance. New family traditions.
Is everything “perfect?” Of course not. Though I am happy to see where we have come from and our personal & family development. We are more safe and comfortable with ourselves and each other than ever before. I am grateful for this journey. Marriage and Family has been a university for me. A real Ivy League education. I don’t think it’s the kind of school where you can say “I’m done!” or “I’ve Graduated!” The nature of the family and what is to be gained in THIS school will go on forever. Man, I’m gonna get some smarts!
Jeff is my best friend. The one that loves me for all that I am and have yet to become. He is extremely patient with my faults and my needs. He does the best that he and is 100% committed to US! I am so lucky to have a man who takes his roles and responsibilities seriously & wants to make this family be the forever kind. I can’t wait to get to the point where we are together more years than we ever were apart.
