Tomorrow (July 20th) is our 12th Wedding Anniversary! I can't believe it has been 12 years!! There was SO MUCH that we didn't know when we first married (19 years old) and I feel like we 'grew up together'. You still have a lot to learn about life at 19 and we learned about it together! Needless to say, it hasn't been easy to get to where we're at today *smile* but I honestly wouldn't change a thing. I'm so blessed to have him by my side.
This weekend we had 6 of our nephews and nieces in our home. At one point I was at the mall with all 6 of them and though they were a hand full (ranging in age from 2-15), I was enjoying every minute of it. I called Alex and said, "this is what our Mothers felt like with us"! (we both come from families with 6 kids) I loved waking up in the morning and hearing them all talking and laughing in the living room, I loved giving my 2 year old niece her nightly bath, I loved having 6 kids sitting around the dining room table every night, I loved picking up candy wrappers that hit the floor instead of the trashcan...I could go on and on. Thank you to my sisters for letting us 'borrow' your kids for the weekend...we loved every minute of it.
I still pray on a daily basis that God will allow us to be parents. At one point this weekend, I went into the bathroom and just cried. Children truly are a blessing from God and I pray He will bless us with a family of our own someday. Happy Anniversary babe! I love you with all my heart.
