4th Anniversary!

Thursday, July 16, 2009

It's a little hard to top the great celebration of yesterday, but I thought I'd say a few words about what Mr. A and I are celebrating today!

The past 4 years have been amazing- years I couldn't have imagined in all that I ever imagined about being married. Especially lately, we have been having the time of our lives!! And even though we've had a couple struggles and times that are not amazing in the happy sense, they are amazing in the sense that, by the grace of God, they have only brought us more together and challenged us to be more united.

I don't think I would do well battling infertility without Mr. A. I can definitely see how it rocks marriages to their core, and that is why I'm feeling so blessed today that I can travel this bumpy journey with someone like him who will do anything to cushion our ride. He is going to be a great dad, and it brings tears to my eyes to imagine the day he holds his new little baby for the first time. There are many traits that I hope our kids learn from him: loyalty, drive, creativity, and intelligence, just to name a few!

Mr. A is the leader of our family, and he is someone whom I'd follow to the ends of the earth. As much as he is the leader, we are a knock-out team. I can only think of one thing that we've toiled over as a team that hasn't been a resounding complete success (anyone want to guess? haha). I cherish the fact that we are so good together, and I pray we will be a strong foundation for our family.

Today we pray in thanksgiving for God's blessing and grace over our marriage, and I pray that we'll continue to walk together, come what may. I pray that we'll be an example of Christian marriage to all we meet and especially to our family and especially especially to our kids. I pray that we'll always make each other laugh, especially when laughs aren't readily available. Overall, I just pray that we'll always consider how lucky we are to have each other and each new day to live to our fullest.

We are hoping and praying today that we'll welcome our first baby in this year of our marriage- please Lord grant us this desire of our hearts!

Congratulations! Four years is wonderful! I sometimes get so down about my infertility that I forget to be thankful for how AMAZING my husband is too. I am so grateful for the gift of our marriage. I am glad you ca be grateful too! I pray the Lord gives you a baby to share in your love this year!

Happy 4th anniversary! Just before writing this comment, I joined with you in asking for God's blessing and grace over your marriage and I also asked God to give you and Mr. A the children you both long for.
