5 Amazing Years

Five years ago, we were getting ready to walk down the aisle and promise to spend the rest of our lives together. August 23rd will mark our special day. I'm still amazed at how quickly the time has gone by, but yet I also can't imagine our lives not being together. I can't help but smile at the last 5 years that God has given us.

As cheezy as it sounds, Adam and I both wrote journals to one another leading up to our wedding. Here's an excerpt from our journals to one another in the days before our wedding......

From Adam to me:
"....Just think in a few short hours, we will be practicing for our wedding...yes, I am sooo excited, even if I'm not squealing and jumping up and down. I am so happy and have never been more sure of anything in my life. I want to marry you. I want to live with you the rest of my life. I want to grow old with you. Iwant to love you more each day until we leave this earth. I want to honor you in all that I do as your husband. Thank you for making my dreams come true and for all that you have done as you've prepared yourself to be my one and only wife. I love you. Love Adam"

From me to Adam:
"Only 2 days left! Have I told you yet today that I love you? Cuz I do. Have I told you that I feel so lucky that I get to marry you? Or that no one else has ever made me as happy as you do? Or that I have never found a man so wonderful and amazing as you? Or that you alone hold the key to my heart? Have I told you that I want to spend the rest of my life loving you? Have I told you that even through the hard times, I will be by your side? Have I told you that I look forward to sharing my life with you for the next 50+ years? Have I told you that when I kiss you, it still makes me melt? Have I told you that you are the most amazing gift that God could ever give me? Have I told you yet today that I love you? I hope so."

We've been given something amazing.....one another. God is so good.

Happy Fifth Anniversary to my favorite son and daughter-in-law whom I love very much! May God bless you with many more anniversaries to come. Have fun this weekend.

congratulations! your journals say it all. Now comes the rule of "5's". Do you know in 5 years it will not only be your 10th anniversary but your son will be starting school! Any other children will also be growing fast. I found each 5 years of our lives to be amazing milestones in many ways. Enjoy each day and know you are loved and prayed for by many.
