Happy TEN year anniversary....

WOW! Ten whole years! I can not believe this day has come. I knew we would make it this far- no worries about that... but on November 16, 2001 I would have never have believed that we would have so much extra in our lives and be without so many people whom shared that very special day with us! I got out my wedding albums- the professional one and the snap shot one and I was amazed at the changes that have taken place since that day. We are now 4 grandparents less than we were but we are very thankful to still have 5 of them with us today. Some of our friends have moved away, some we just aren't close to like we were then. Some very dear people that we would have never thought would no longer be here have went on to be with Jesus- but that is a "happy-sad" as a sweet little girl once said. We have had a great ten years since that day.... and we have hopes of having many many more together.

We have a good home- not just a house- a home- which was always what we strived and longed for. We have 3 beautiful, wild, funny, healthy children- which were just a dream 10 years ago. We have a great church and wonderful church family. Every one is in good health- which I learned is something to be grateful for at any age because sickness does not discriminate because your are young, have kids or have a life so busy that you just don't have time for it. We have each other- and I am oh so thankful for that. Good, Bad, Hard Times, Easy Times, Happy, Sad, Sick (which JD tends to think he is most days ;) Well, Frantic or Calm- we have each other.... and need each other.... and are thankful for each other....
that is precious to me. And most of all- We have the Lord and we know without a doubt it is because of Him that we have anything and everything. He is our supplyer and our foundation.

So here is to ten years of bliss- sometimes madness- a touch of temper- a lot of hugs and an abundance of patience.....I love you JD!
