13 Years

Thirteen years ago today, I married my dearest friend. James, I'm so thankful for your steadfast, sacrificial love. You are the very best earthly gift God has ever given me.
 I'm thankful for your commitment to me and to Our Father.

I'm thankful for the way you've cared me through happy times, hard times, and times of illness. Little did we know that we were in for a time of "illness" in the above photo. The next two nights would be spent in the hospital. I'm so done with horses.
 I'm thankful that you love this sweet boy in Ethiopia just as much as I do.

 I'm thankful for all of the time that your give our children, and I'm thankful that you stuck it out with me on the long, awful road that we had to walk down to get to them.

 I'm thankful that you are a sucker for doggies.
 I'm thankful that you go all out for Halloween. I hope our kids have many fun memories of their Daddy dressing up!
I'm thankful for your love travel and for the memories that we've made exploring God's creation.


  1. Awe, what a precious, precious post! And, how well I do remember this special, special day!

  2. So happy for you both. May God continue to bless you with happiness and joy with your marriage, children and service to Him. Love you so much.
