Five Years.

It’s been FIVE whole years since we said “I do” – can you believe it?
Five years.  A big milestone in a marriage, I believe.
Five years. Wow.
In five years, we have seen many, many firsts:
Our first home.
Our first fur babies.
Our first job loss.
There have been many tears and frustrations, and many prayers.  
But even more than that, there have been many smiles and giggles and kisses and belly laughs.
And I wouldn’t trade a moment of it.

 B - 
Thank you for loving me…every single piece of me.  Our vows mean more to me today than they did on that beautiful May day five years ago.  You are the steady, never-failing rock to this relationship.  You love like no one I have ever known.  You are the best daddy, and I love the way you love our precious daughter.  You are my support system, my best friend.  I love you yesterday, today and tomorrow and every day after that…thank you for always being you.
I always thought it was kind of redundant when couples chose this verse to read at their wedding ceremony.  Today, when I read it, I understand why it’s one of the most-used verses for wedding ceremonies.  It’s beautiful and tranquil and endearing and lovely….everything that love is to me today.

“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.  Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.”
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
