Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.
1 Corinthians 13
It has been an amazing, scary, troubling, happy, blissful, journey of a year. We have had ups, downs and even side to sides in our house. We have been flipped upside down and rightside up, but through it all we have clung to each other.
This year has marked many changes for us, we welcomed our beautiful daughter, we have dealt with bouts of almost poverty, we have made changes in our careers and changes in our lives.
In a year that has at times almost torn us apart we have made it through together and stronger than I think we ever were. We have learned patience and hope, with each other, with our marriage and with God.
I never thought that the things we have been through we would go through but it has made us stronger and tougher, we have pushed each other away and came back to each other alot this year. I think this year has shown us what our relationship and our marriage are made of. It has been a reality check, a test of sorts.
I know that God has a purpose and a plan for us and our marriage and while we are still figuring that out, we are clinging to each other even tighter through it all. We have some interesting changes ahead as well, but if the last year is any indication, we know that we can and will get through it, stronger than ever and a better family.
So happy anniversary to us, and heres to many more. We may not be perfect in our love all the time but we are perfect for each other and that is why we make it through the stormy days.
I love you always and forever, and couldn't imagine anyone better to grow old and gray with.
and to qoute from one of our favorite movies:
"True love is the soul's recognition of its counterpoint in another"
