This past Friday marked five whole years since I made the craziest decision of my life.
In other words, five years ago I got married:
And I have spent the last few days trying to write something worthy of a five year anniversary. Unfortunately, everything I came up with either sounded clichè (boy the years sure have flown by!), depressing (don’t ask), cheesy (I am so thankful for the last five years!), or a little too hoity toity (I mean, five years probably isn’t enough time for me to be an expert on marriage…).
But the truth is, they really have flown by. I really am so very, very thankful for the last five years. And we really have learned and grown a lot both individually and as a couple – whether or not that makes me an “expert” on marriage (ok, ok, I realize it does not…).
And although we’ve made mistakes (big ones), we’ve learned from them.
Although we’ve struggled (a lot), we’ve grown.
Although we’ve walked close to the edge (it’s a thin line), we’ve never given up.
And I am so grateful for all the lessons we’ve learned, for the love of my husband, and for the grace of God.
Because without those things I have absolutely no doubt that we wouldn’t be where we are today (read: still married). It’s definitely true what they say: it’s easy to get married. It’s not as easy to stay married.
But I’m thankful we did 🙂
Happy five years hun, here’s to many, many more.
I love you!
