8 years

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

8 years ago today we stood under an amazing beach sunset on the south tip of Maui and said I do. 

Of course in many ways it feels like 20 and then in so many other ways, it feels as if only a single year has passed. 

I'm more than thankful we said, "I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will love you and honor you all the days of my life."

I'm more than thankful for our covenant. 

Because we've seen some really, really good times.  We've also stood at the gates of hell in the bad.

Our marriage has been a recipe for disaster and attack from the beginning.  One battle in life after another.  Death, moving 12 hours away from anyone and thing we knew, changing careers, the economy crash, Alli, and all the little things in between that add up....

But we stood through.   

I thank you for always keeping God in the center of our home and marriage.   I thank you for always loving me and supporting me. 

And I even thank you for putting me in my place when I needed it (just typing that made my mouth taste like vinegar).  I'm glad we also agree those times are few and far in between. ;-) 

You are such an amazing man, incredible husband, and father. 

I love you til the end.
