14 Years

Earlier this week Michael and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary.  So much has happened in those 14 years.  Our life has been full of trials and tough times but there have also been blessings too many to count. 

We have moved.  A lot.  Each move was an effort to better the situation we were in.  Some of those moves were very hard.  Some brought excitement.  Some moves were to a bigger house with a little more room for our growing family.  Some were to a smaller house that caused us to work and come together.  Some moves were to get in a better place financially.  Some were to get us in better place spiritually and bring us back together as a family.  All came with hardships.  All came with blessings.  We have made many wonderful friends along the way.  We have had many amazing experiences along the way. 

In 14 years we went from two completely different people with different backgrounds and upbringings to a couple who has learned to work together and support each other.  We know the strengths and weaknesses of each other.  We know when to back off and when to press on.  We pray together, fast together, confide in each other and love each other.  We date each other, flirt with each other and still hold hands while we drive places together.

We have both grown and changed over the years, but we have grown and changed together.  I look forward to many more years of adventure together!
