20 (And Counting)
I’m thinking someone got the year mixed up on mine and Jeff's marriage license because how is it we have been married for 20 years today? Sometimes I find it harder to mark the passing of time, to remember “X” happened in whatever year, not having a family of our own growing around us.
But oh, we have grown.
We have tried to fit into various pockets or categories, together and individually, into what we think a Good Christian Married Couple ought to be. And some of those things are good and have been kept. Others are good and are being worked and walked towards. And still other things have been found to simply not work with how we’re wired, with how we best fit together. That’s okay.
I simply pray we never stop growing. Growing together.
Because with all the ups and downs we have faced, with the questions and “What ifs” and “If onlys” we have weathered, one thing has not changed: My certainty that I walk this road best with Jeff by my side.
Happy anniversary, sweetie! I’m so glad you are mine and I am yours.
