My anniversary is just around the corner. Anniversaries are always a time I reflect on my marriage, naturally.
I am so proud to say that this year is our third anniversary. May not seem like a lot, but we beat the odds as far as I am concerned.
Our first year was the hardest and it almost ended there. We fought all the time. Very bad fights. The kind that tear your heart apart and the kind that usually end in divorce.I won't go into detail, because frankly, its too personal, but we did work things out and I am so happy neither of us gave up. God truly worked a miracle in both of us.
Its crazy to look back on that and see where we are now. Marriage is truly work, but very rewarding work. I cannot imagine my life without my Husband.
I feel so blessed to have been given a good man.
I feel even more blessed that I asked God for his help when times were hard and the human part of me just wanted to walk away and end it all. It would have been so much easier to do that some days. But, as they say,"Anything worth having is hard work". Boy, oh boy, it is seriously hard work, but, wow, is it worth it.
My husband is my best friend in the entire world.
Now, I have the task of trying to figure out what to do for our anniversary that doesn't cost and arm and a leg. I would really like a creative thing that is far from the usual.
Anyone have any ideas?
