My love

Today, November 4th, is a special day.

It is the day that we said 'I do' 7 years ago. I can't believe I have been married to such an incredible man for 7 years.

In the course of our 7 year marriage we have been.....

-a land surveyor, a vet tech, students, a pressure washer, a pro-life ministry worker, a firefighter, a photographer, a farmer, a husband, a wife, a father, a stay-at-home-mommy.

-moved 7 times. Can you believe it? We were real live gypsies living in a travel trailer and all!

-become parents of one and then parents of two.

Through all of these journeys we have remained best friends. Jason, I still look forward to seeing you every second of the day. When you walk into the room, I'm at peace. I enjoy every waking moment with you. It is warmth to my soul and laughter to my heart.

The Lord blessed my socks off when He placed you into my life. I didn't know what I needed in a husband, but you exceed every thought, dream, and hope.

The way that you love me and the girls is incredible. We feel like a queen and little princesses. Your love has no stipulations or strings attached. You give it freely and wholly to us.

Your hands tell so much about your character and who you are. They are worn, rough, and used. Yet tender and ever reaching out to show us your love and affection.

Thank you for the way that you lead our family being sensitive to the Lord's guidance. You are the most amazing man that I've ever met. I'm thankful that I get to call you husband and friend and that I get to go through life here on earth by your side.

I love you.

I love being married to you. Never in my life did I expect to have such a great wife, mother, and friend. Your the true trifecta. My complete package. Thank you so much for being by my side in all of our adventures, jobs, moves, and now farming. I am amazed at how you have allowed God to transform you from this young girl of 19 that I married to this "womanly" mother and wife I have now. Thank you these 7 great years. I can't wait to say we have 50 as we sit in our rocking chairs watching the sun set. You rock and I love you more than you will ever know.
