Time Flies!



Geez. I'm sitting here on the eve of our anniversary. It's hard to believe that tomorrow, August 9, 2010, Jesse and I will have been married for 7 years! Where has the time gone? It's bitter-sweet. Heck, thinking back to the day we got married, I thought by our 7th anniversary we'd have the family complete. Instead, I sit here the night before our anniversary thinking wow, we have been through SOOOO much in the past 7 years.

I never in my wildest dreams would have thought Jesse and I would have had so much trouble to start our family. Yet, looking back, I know everything we have been through has been part of the plan. Not my plan of course, but His plan.

I am so glad that the night before my anniversary, I am sitting here, MORE in love with my husband than the day before I married him. He is truly my soul mate and my best friend. I know that all we have been through has made us stronger and there is nothing that can ever break that. We have been through hell and back and here we are still together.

So instead of looking back at the past 7 years and worrying about what is missing...I am looking back on the last 7 years with gratitude for my husband and all that we have been through. I know that day we bring our baby home, however it may happen, will be worth all the heartache and pain we have been through.


This is one of my favorite wedding pictures. I can't help but think Jesse is saying, "Dear God, what have I gotten myself into?!" :0)

You are such a beautiful couple. Happy anniversary to you both. I love your outlook on not looking back on what is missing. Its great that you can see the blessings God has placed in your life, especially when the things that don't go quite as planned seem to stand out so much. I like the positive outlook you have. I hope you and your hubs have a great year ahead!
