Today Mike and I celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary.
In 13 years we've:
graduated Mike from college
had two kids
bought two houses
bought 3 cars
taken 4 big vacations (Disney, San Francisco, New York, Toronto) and many smaller ones
started a tour of visiting all the ballparks in North America as our love for Ranger baseball grows
suffered a car wreck
suffered some broken bones, sprains, and other injuries
had 5 surgeries (4 for Donna, 1 for Mike)
run a half marathon and countless smaller races
been members of 2 different churches
made a ton of fabulous friends
5 job changes for Mike
3 position changes for Donna
experienced times when we didn't know if there'd be enough money to cover bills
experienced times of immense blessing
had our marriage tested
supported each other's dreams
shared each other's sorrows
There's probably so much more I'm forgetting, but those are the highlights. 13 years. A LOT of life has happened in those 13 years and even knowing what I know now, I wouldn't change it. Michael is still my best friend and the one with whom I want to grow old.
Marriage isn't easy, but when you put your spouse first and commit daily, the rewards are great.
The Lord only knows
what the next 13 years will hold for us.
