15 years

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Today, I’m celebrating 15 years of marriage with the man I love. 15 years that were both harder and easier than I could ever have imagined. I didn’t realize how happy I would be, how much capacity I have to love, how it feels to be loved absolutely unconditionally. (at least by someone who is not my parent)

I just deleted two paragraphs of my thoughts on marriage, what makes it successful, what it is, what it isn’t. That’s just not what I want to post today. What I want to post right now is that I love my husband. He loves me. We’re in the middle of a hard and messy life, but the lovin’ is easy. For that, I am overwhelmingly grateful. We worked hard to get here, and we’ll work hard again in the future, but right now, today, I’m reveling in 15 years, 2 states, 5 moves, 3 churches, 4 jobs, 8 children, 4 dogs, 5 ill-advised cats, and a lifetime’s worth of love – it’s all good. It’s all grace.
