I have been meaning to post about our anniversary since the day before we celebrated it but haven’t got my thoughts together to do it yet. Not that I didn’t have anything to say (because ya’ll know that I can post a small book about something really important like people watching or cleaning my house) but because I had SO much to say about my wonderful husband that I didn’t know where to start!
I just have to say that I have the most amazing husband in the world. I love him so much and even after five years of marriage he still makes my heart jump and I get giddy when I see him!
Back when Spencer and I were just dating and Spencer would mention the idea of marriage I would want to run and hide. Not because I didn’t love Spencer or know that he was the one for me, but because I was scared to death of the commitment of marriage. After two years of dating (don’t ask me why Spence hung around so long) I felt that I knew Spencer well enough to make the marriage commitment.
As well as you think you know someone, there are still so many unknowns until you live with them day to day. From small things, like how they are always singing or humming no matter what they are doing, to big things like what kind of parent will they be or how will they handle hard times.
I can say in all honesty that as I knelt across the alter from Spencer five years ago, I knew I loved him and I knew he was the man that God had for me, he was without question “the one”. But did I realize that someday I would watch him turn white when we found out we’d had a miscarriage or that he’d be my strength in the day to day challenges that I would face? Did I realize the extent of his integrity and character? Did I know that he would still make me laugh until I can’t breathe and that I’d still be glad to see him walk through the door? Did I know that he would be the best daddy a little girl could ask for?
I didn’t know any of that to the extent that I know it now. I thank my Heavenly Father for blessing me with a wonderful husband. Of all the things that are good in my life, he is the best. And he makes me want to be better.
To five great years and many more to come. Happy Anniversary Spencer. I love you!
