8 years.

Mitch and I celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary today. It is hard to believe that many years have passed since we stood before our family and friends and said "I do, for forever." 
The past 8 years have been wonderful. Some years were harder than others. Some years brought more joy than others. But I cherish each for what the Lord allowed to take place in our life. 

I have to say, I recently realized that Mitch could bring me chocolates and a bouquet of flowers every day for a year, but still nothing would be sexier than seeing him on the video monitor in the middle of the night in just his boxer-briefs as he goes to console Scarlett if she wakes up crying. Seriously! It's like you cannot imagine the things you would find romantic until you see your husband as the father of your children. 

Mitch, you are the greatest thing that has ever happened to me aside from Jesus' unfailing love that gave me salvation. I love you more with each passing day. I cherish the way you tenderly care for Scarlett and I. I love how you love to play with Scarlett. How you are frazzled by nothing. How you trust God. And how you genuinely are interested in others. You will always be the living-end in my eyes!!! 

Lord willing, we will share many more anniversaries together. I am so proud to be your wife. 
I will love you forever and ever, amen!
