This past weekend, my husband and I, together with our boys, celebrated 16 years of marriage. We had discussed what to do to celebrate, and seeing how I’m nine months pregnant and all, we knew we wanted to stay close to home and keep it simple this year.
Both of us felt like we wanted to include our sons, all of them, on our date. Strange as it may sound, they’re part of the beauty we’re celebrating. Each one of these boys are here with us as a result of our love for each other, so it only seemed appropriate to take them with us, and then to make it a point to explain to them at dinner, that we were celebrating family.
We’ll soon have eight boys born into our family in the sixteen years since we were married in January of 1996.
If that’s not a cause for celebration, I sure don’t know what is!
So…here’s to my hard-working man, whom I’ve watched mature into an amazing father, successful business man/entrepreneur, friend, and supportive-like-never-before husband. I’m glad we’ve weathered the storms and held onto each other this far. I look forward to the rest of the adventure with him! And to our precious children, gifts from the Lord, as each of them are – we’re so blessed to get to be your parents, and we’re so thankful for our LIFE together!
I’m so thankful we get to celebrate! 16 years and counting!
What are YOU thankful for this Thursday?
