Seven Years

Seven years ago today, I married a wonderful man.

August 7th, 2004

Through all these years, he has supported me during the tough times,

My graduation day- a joyous day, but 5 years of TOUGH work.

laughed with me during the ridiculous,

comforted me during the sorrow,

Mark's grandmother, who we lost last year. A wonderful woman, who truly invited me into her family. We miss her dearly.

and smiled with me during the joy,

The birth of our first baby girl- 2008.

 He has given me two beautiful miracle daughters,

Our two girls- 2011.

and provides happily for our family.

Our Family- March 2011

I have come to realize that marriage is more than a love filled with passion, to borrow the words of Paul Sweeney, "A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity. The order varies for any given year".

Our order has varied too, but I couldn't be happier going through the chaos of life with any other person.

On our way to our honeymoon- August 7th, 2004

Happy Anniversary, Mark!!  I love you.
