May 25, 2014
As I sit here and type this, I think about all that has happened in this past year. And how blessed we have truly been. A year ago today, I was one short day away from marrying the most incredible man I have ever met, my now husband, Randy. A year ago today, everything was changing, and looking back I know that in those moments I did not feel any stress or anxiety but rather I felt excitement and peace.
May 25th 2013. It truly was the very best day. I woke up with boundless energy – I remember texting Randy our usual good morning text, sharing in our excitement for marriage and being so ready to become his wife! As I looked outside our hotel window, I remember so clearly how brightly the sun was shining, and I remember thinking it was as if my Papa (who had passed away a month prior and beautifully written our wedding vows) was right there in that moment with me. For him to have written our vows was beyond special and something that Randy and I were so blessed by.
Sometimes all it takes is to think about where we were a year ago, and see how far we have come, to realize that this life is too short to not enjoy every single moment. When I look at photographs from our wedding day, I am reminded once again, of how much joy and excitement we felt on that day. I am so thankful that we chose to feel joy rather than stress. And I can confidently say that this past year of marriage with Randy has been by far the best year of my life, (don’t get me wrong we did have our ups and downs like any normal couple!) he continues to amaze me in his generosity, patience, love and godliness. I cannot wait to see all that God has in store for us in all the years to come!
