Four Years Later

Today, Jeramie and I celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary. In some ways, it feels like we got married a lifetime ago and, in other ways, it seems as if these four years have gone by way too fast.

I am so very blessed to call Jeramie my husband. He is a hard-working, soft-hearted, romantic, compassionate, helpful, gentle man. Sure, he has flaws and there have been many tearful, hurtful days during our time together, but his ultimate goal is to be the man God created him to be. He loves me and Ethan the best he knows how, and is constantly learning how to be an even better husband and father. For that, I am thankful.

Jeramie is literally making my dreams come true. Before Ethan, I thought there was no way I could or would be a stay-at-home mom. However, I think we've all learned more in the past year and a half than we ever thought possible, and my heart has changed. Being at home with Ethan is all I've wanted ever since I went back to work last August, and Jeramie has stepped-up to the plate. Not only does he go to work everyday and find ways to make more money for his family, but he does it with excitement. The support and encouragement he gives me for staying at home with Ethan is incredible.

I am so lucky to have a husband who not only showers me with thoughtful surprises and expressions of love on our anniversary, but constantly throughout the year as well. I pray that I can show my love to him as easily and freely as he does to me.

I hope that God grants us many, many more years together and that we will continue to stand strong, no matter what may come our way.

Happy anniversary, Jeramie. I love you, and I am honored to be your wife. For better or for worse. For richer or for poorer. In sickness and in health. We are in this together, and there's no where else I'd rather be.
