5 Years Ago Today

Five years ago today I married my soulmate.  If you had asked me ten years ago what I saw for myself in 2011, it wouldn't have been this.  Ten years ago, I was miserable.  I didn't realize how miserable at the time, but I was.  Today, I can honestly say that each day I am happier than the day before.  God led me to a man who is perfect for me.  Then, two years later, God gave me the most precious gift, Wheeler.  I know both of these events in my life were God given.  I also know, had it not been for all the trials I had before meeting John, that I wouldn't be where I am today, and I would quite possibly be taking for granted what I've got.

I don't take anything for granted.  I have the love of a man who adores me (and all of my many flaws!)  I have the love of a man who thinks I am perfect just as I am (bless his heart!)  I have the love of a man who would walk through hell and back, just to protect me, make me happy, and give me my every whim.

I also don't take for granted this wonderful man I speak of also had a hand in giving me my most precious gift.  I have a beautiful, handsome, healthy little boy who never ceases to amaze me.  Every night (and many, many times a day) I thank God for him.

I know how lucky I am to have this.  I know not everyone has what I have, I didn't have it ten years ago.  I also know how lucky I am to have found the man I have, because I saw, through my own daddy, how I should be treated.

I thank God every day for leading me to John.  I dream of growing old together, of spoiling our grandchildren, and being this happy the rest of my life.

My perfect little family!
