10 years ago today I said I do. I said I do to a wonderful caring man and a perfect little 6 year old boy. Our 10 year journey may be one filled with lots of bumps in the road and some heartache but I always remember how truly blessed I am to have these two men in my lives and I wouldn't have it any other way. On this day I try to remember the vows we took 10 years ago. No one ever thinks about the for worse only the for better. Marriage is so much more than just good times; I am grateful for the strong family the lord has blessed me with to be able to weather the storms.
3 years ago on our 7 year anniversary our whole word was almost riped apart by the word viable. This week I have yet again been reminded of how great our God is and how blessed I am.
My son Brandon is one of the strongest 16 year old kids I know. He has had more heartache than most of us adults have in a life time and he walk strong and does not dwell in his swore, his mother would be so proud of the amazing job she did to raise such a young man.
This week he asked me to print a paper for him for school and as I was printing it I saw that it was a paper that started out with him talking to his mom so I saved it to read later. Little did I know this story was about his journey 3 years ago and what it was like for him. As I read the paper I also got word that a very good family friend had given birth to her son at 30 weeks just 3 oz under 3lbs. So as I am reading this and getting this news it brought back so many memories of our own journey. I think some times it is nice to have a good cry and remember just how much God has given me. My tears are of the great gifts I have been blessed with. The two children God has blessed me with to raise who love each other more than anything else. A husband that supports my dreams to be home to care for our family.
