January 8, 2000

'Twas the day these two children were married:



Happy Anniversary, Babe! Without you, I would not be who I am today. Thank you for being a loving and supportive husband, for being my confidante in all things (even though you sometimes wish you weren't :), and for giving me perspective when I'm too far gone in my emotions to see it myself. Thank you for being the most amazing daddy to our two beautiful sons, whom I am so blessed to get to spend every day with at home (or let's be honest...all over town). I am so proud of all you do and all you have accomplished, but most of all, I am so proud of the man that you are. We couldn't have more different personalities, but God knew the balancing act he was putting together on this day 10 years ago. He knew how I much I needed your strength, mind and composure. And you know God knew how much you needed my silliness, loudness and inability to think before speaking. :)

In some ways, I can't believe it has been 10 years already. In other ways, I remember how much has happened and how much we've done in those 10 years. We've made a home, a family and some of the best friendships with people we will ever know. We have solidified the foundations of who we are together and who we are in Christ. How blessed are we? I know! So much! I love you with everything I am and I can't wait to experience the next 10 years with you (and the next and the next...) and all the fun times they will bring. I am praising the Lord today for true commitments and the blessings they bring!

I thought of the two of you last week -- 10 yrs! Can you believe it?! I was there when it all happened , never would have imagined 2 kids from the two of you. Congrats and I wish you many more years together. God did a great job bring Jim up to Trout Lake that weekend!
