Happy Anniversary, Love...

Photo taken by Brandy Jaggers

I wish I had a few more than 5 minutes.  I'd write you a poem or at the very least a nice long letter.  But, I have only a second.  One of our gifts is squirming on the boppy in my lap, another is playing contentedly in a crib with toys (this will not last long :-), and the other gifts are rounding up cattle (stuffed animals) somewhere in the wild west of our upstairs. The evidence of our love is undeniably wild and loud and may crash through the ceiling onto my computer at any second!

Thirteen years and I still get butterflies...

How do you do that to me????

I am fragile, weak, and easily shaken.  You hold me tight.

My head is in the clouds.  Your feet are firmly planted.

I like the gooey middle.  You like the crust.

I can recall every detail of my past.  You live fully in the present moment.

I am taken by the beauty of the backyard.  You alert me to the fact that I am standing in an ant bed. :-)

I talk incessantly.  You listen and hold your words close.

I like to write and read and think.  You like to watch and play .

My moods change by the hour.  You are calm and steady.

We just work together perfectly ~ crafted by His hands ~ made for one another.

Not many things in life are easy.

I am so thankful that our relationship is.

I love you.

Hi! I live in a sweet country home overflowing with love, laughter, and little ones. I have been blessed to journey these days beside a man that I love, respect, and admire. He is my soul-mate and best friend. Together we are seeking to raise our seven children to be lovers of God, to be wise and discerning, and to be all that our sweet God created them to be. I am in the goldfish and cheerio stage of life, but I am keenly aware that these days are slipping right through my hands. This blog is my attempt to keep our memories safe for years to come.
