Today I feel so blessed, it is my sixth year wedding anniversary with Nick. We met eleven years ago this month in college. It's amazing how the time has flown by. I vividly remember this morning, August 20th, 2005 as I woke up so excited to encounter the moments of the special day. I relaxed at my parent's house and laughed with my dear friends and family as we anticipated the ceremony at five o'clock that evening. Once I arrived at the church, we all gathered in the same room where my mother got ready for her wedding. It was there, that I too, prepared for my wedding. I could not wait to put my wedding gown on and walk down the aisle. I peeked out of the windows to see the guests arriving at the church...I was like a kid in a candy shop..."is this all for us", I said to myself?! I waited longer, not so patiently, for the word to make my way to the sanctuary. It was there, I stood arms linked with my two dads, waiting to turn the corner. Just then, I heard the organ and trumpets, the music of Trumpet Voluntary began to ring through every crevice of the church...it was our turn...it was our moment...I was ready to begin my walk to marry the greatest man I know! That hour began the next chapter of our married lives.
I try so hard not to take for granted what God has given me in my marriage. I am blessed to spend everyday with my best friend. I will always treasure my husband for being a sensitive, encouraging, helpful, loving, protecting, and caring man. I wanted to dedicate my writing to him today. I try not to let a day go by without telling my husband how much he means to me. We should share our feelings with all of those we care about in our lives.
