Happy Anniversary


"I promise to love you with patience and with kindness, without envying and without boasting. I will not be rude towards you. I will not be easily angered. I will keep no record of wrongs. I will rejoice with you. I will always protect, always hope with you, always trust you, and always persevere with you." 


It's humbling to consider how many times I've already fallen short on those vows. I've been easily angered, rude, and kept a record of wrongs more times than I'd like to admit. I've lacked in patience and I've lacked in kindness. There's been times where I focused more on life's roadblocks than on hoping and trusting and persevering. 
But I am so thankful for forgiveness. It's something I've encountered more in marriage than I ever imagined. While I'm no pro by any means, I do look back on those early days and remember a lot more times I said things I wish I didn't or didn't say things I wish I did. After two years I feel like I've grown so much as a person, and learned how to do a better job keeping those wedding promises. 


It just keeps getting better. 


Happy Anniversary, love!
