Today is our 5 year anniversary!! WOW - it's been an interesting 5 years. I can't say they've all been filled with happy days but I know that we're only moving forward (not backward) in our relationship. We definitely had an "uphill climb" if you will. We welcomed our first child in our first year of marriage which definitely put a spin on things. :-) And then we moved to Birmingham, got into a great church, and started growing more as a couple and family.
Robert is unselfish, hardworking, wise, patient, faithful, discerning, trustworthy, dependable, respectable, and ALWAYS thinking of others. He is full of integrity and a desire to please God! We have come so far from where we were when we got married! We were both a little selfish...ok, a lot. And had no clue what marriage was about. But thank goodness for our premarital counseling - even though it didn't make sense until later. The pastor who married us told us one thing that will always stay with us. If each individual is growing closer to God, you will grow closer to each other. He drew a triangle and put God at the top and each of us in the bottom corners.
I still have a long way to go when it comes to understanding men, including my husband. I have many areas I need to work in. Like being more complimentary of him. I'm thinking it, why can't I say it? I am always SO proud to stand by his side. I feel secure around him know he (and God) will always work things out.
I feel so blessed to have found Robert. I don't think there are too may men out there like him anymore! His drive and passion to succeed in what he does and grow as a person amazes me. He really deserves much better! But I am so thankful for all he does for our family.
Bottom line...........ROBERT'S AWESOME!!! And I'm so proud to be called his WIFE!!!
OK, so I had to dig around a bit and find a wedding picture.
I LOVE YOU BABE!!! I know I don't say it enough!! I love you with all of my heart!!! I look forward to many more years together!!!! Happy Anniversary!!!
