Chad and I celebrate 10 yrs of Marriage

 

 

Well I wrote a REALLY long entry about me and Chad, how we met, how we started dating, etc and then stupid aol goes and well decides to be aol. grrrr

I'm in the midst of making the boys and I lunch so I'll just say...10 yrs ago I did the smartest thing I could have ever done and said "I do". I love this man and we've been through more in our short 10 yrs of marriage than most do in 50. We've so far welcomed 3 children, with one on the way. We've had our daughter dx with leukemia while living in a foreign country, moved back to the US for her to be tx at Walter Reed, been through a bone marrow transplant, and ultimately have her die in my arms. We've went through an emotional pregnancy with Jacob who was born just 8 short months after the death of Jordyn. Welcomed another son 2 yrs 9 months after Jacob's birth, moved to Germany (again), been through 4 deployments 2 of them to Iraq.

I am so thankful that God brought Chad into my life. That Chad's my best friend and that we were friends first before we ever started dating, that although we married just 4 short months after we started dating (we were friends before we started dating) I have no regrets. I've changed in many ways, Chad's changed in many ways. We've grown in our relationship together, but most important we've each grown in our relationship with Jesus!

I'm a better person because of Chad. I am so thankful for him, for his love, his devotion to me and our family. I AM blessed!
