In Sickness and in Health

12 years ago today I said “I do”. 

 To be honest, I wasn’t quite sure what marriage (healthy marriage) that is would look like for me.  I knew that I loved this guy, more than I had ever allowed myself to love anyone.  I knew that we wanted the same things from life and that he was a great father to my baby and the little one we had on the way.  But, a part of me wasn’t getting my hopes up.  I had seen plenty of disappointment and plenty of betrayal in my eighteen years so a part of me was wondering why I was setting myself up for a world of hurt down the road.

Praise the Lord, he knew what was best for me, even before I did! 

To paraphrase Psalm 113, He raised me from the ash heap and seated me with my prince and settled me in our home as the happy mother of children.

Mike and I have been through many things in our marriage.  The happiest of times and the most difficult of times.  God has given me a man who can handle the storms of life and hold the umbrella over me at the same time.

I love you, my sweet hubby, and thank God for you EVERY day.  Here’s to the next 12 and the 12 after that…

Love you more,




  1. Happy Anniversary! 🙂 I wish you many more years of happiness! 🙂

  2. Happy anniversary! Hope you have a wonderful day celebrating your love!
