Meaningful moments.

For most of you in the adult world, the big "one year" bit really doesn't have much weight. But just this year, I've accomplished more spiritually, emotionally, and physically than I have over the last five. I've come to know love that is patient, trusting, kind, protecting, honoring, justified, calm, and blessed by God. In this, I've learned "togetherness" and teamwork, sacrifice and compromise. It is everything I want and everything I need. Let me thank you, reader, for enjoying this crazy, chaotic journey with us.

"Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved."

Shakespeare, Sonnet 116

I am a blessed woman. God has given me more chances than I deserve, and more love than I can reciprocate. How wonderful it is that He has also given me David. 
I love you, dear. Here's to many more years of excitement and bliss.

Congratulations! I think the one year is a big deal. Sticking with anything for a year takes a big amount of dedication and commitment. Congrats again on making it through year one, and here's to more in the future!
