Our 15th Anniversary!!!!

I can't believe it has been 15 years! Where did the time go?? Well, it has been filled with laughter and fun, tears and pain, growing together and growing our family. 

Fifteen years ago today, Frank and I made a vow to each other. To love each other through it all, the good times and the bad, and like any other couple we have had plenty of both.  My mom once told me that the two hardest jobs that a woman can have is being a mother and a wife, she wasn't kidding. What she quickly pointed out then was that they are also the two most rewarding and she wasn't kidding about that either! 
I can tell you that I have loved being married to Frank and I have loved being his bride. I only dreamed of being treated like Frank treats me and I can honestly say that we are more in love with each other today then we were 15 years ago. Back then, I didn't think it would be possible to love him any more than I already did, but with time and seeing each other at our worst and yet our best, I do, love him so much more. I am so glad that I know that no matter what we are forever. There is so much uncertainty in this lifetime that to have that is simply a blessing in and of itself. 
Our vows were based on 1Corinthians 13 - the Love Chapter. It wasn't that long ago, that I was reading through 1 Corinthians and had the chance to really read that chapter and some of the words just jumped right out of the page at me. Looking at these past 15 years, we have really tried to live that out in our marriage and although there has been failure, I am happy to say we have really been successful at alot more of it! Praise God for guiding us through some really tough times and keeping us together when other couples would have called it quits! I am married to a Godly man who thinks that I am perfect and who puts all of his family before himself every day. He leads our home with confidence and integrity. Our boys have a wonderful role model and our daughter has such a wonderful example of the kind of man that she should be praying for to marry her one day. What a pleasure and a privilege it has been to grow up with Frank and to see him become the man he is today! I truly am blessed!
Thank you sweetheart for the best 15 years of my life! I can't wait to see what our future holds for us in the next 15! You are my love, my best friend, my partner in this life. You still take my breath away and I am so very proud to be your wife! I love you so very much, thank you for choosing to spend this lifetime with me!!!
Happy 15th Anniversary, baby!!!
