My Fairy Tale

Five years ago today I married the most amazing man I have ever been blessed to meet. Since then life has flown by at amazing speeds and each time I stop to contimplate life I am amazed at how deeply blessed I am and how far we have come!

In the last 5 years I have graduated from college, watched my husband graduate from college, had 2 children, moved across 3 states, bought my first house, supported my husband's decision to return to school for a masters in teaching, learned how to garden, made friends, learned more than I ever wanted to know about air conditioning, helped my husband build a family table, and ultimately learned that I know nothing.

I am not an immaculate house keeper. I am not a perfect wife nor a perfect mother. I find though that that doesn't matter. What I have learned in the past 5 years is no matter what my husband loves me with an unconditional love. It is like a small taste of what God's love must be. I have learned my children don't want a perfect mother, they want me.

I have found I love my husband and my children more than I knew it was possible to love. It is like my husband's and my love for each-other started out as a small creek when we where dating, by the time we got married it had turned into a river, through the years our love continues to grow as though it is becoming an unstoppable ocean. When I think about our love for each-other, when I think of all the things we have done in the last 5 years, when I look into what the future could hold, I am overwhelmed with happiness. I have become a firm believer in fairy tales and happy endings because I am living mine.
