My husband, Adam, and I just celebrated our 11 year wedding anniversary on July 16. It is difficult to believe that it is been so long! Parts of it flew by, whilst other parts of those years have been difficult and dragged on. We have definitely had our struggles and possibilities to grow collectively. I thank God for His wonderful grace to get us via it all and I thank Him that Adam and I have produced it this far. It’s been by grace that we have made it this long and it is NOT simply because Adam or I are so fantastic that we are right here and stronger than ever!
Adam totally surprised me with my anniversary gift this year. I was obtaining prepared for our date evening out and he told me he wanted to show me something that a worker had completed to our basement (it is beneath construction) and to come down when I got a opportunity. I walked down to find a dark basement only lit by candles. My husband had me sit down and he sang to me. It was the sweetest issue! He does not generally sing, so he worked truly hard at this. The song that he wanted wasn’t offered on a karaoke track so he figured out how to get the words off the track to make it operate and he rehearsed it for days. He didn’t make it through the first verse just before I was bawling, and he couldn’t finish the end of the song due to the fact he was crying too.
He thanked me for 11 great years and four incredible youngsters that I’ve provided him. He mentioned a lot of other sweet issues in his speech that he had ready. Then he pulled out a ring. It was a brand new engagement ring and wedding band set. Adam mentioned that we have been through so a lot, but it all had brought it us to exactly where we are now so he wouldn’t alter a single factor. He stated let the ring remind me of that, that he wouldn’t alter a issue.
You see, we had rings. I had an engagement ring from when he proposed and a wedding band from the day we got married. But we got married young. We had been pretty clueless back then, just a couple of kids trying to make it. We got pregnant with Hope 5 months right after we got married. I gave birth to Hope and then 5 months later, I was pregnant with Elijah. Decreased income and enhanced costs is a challenging combination. We have been badly in debt and sold all that we could, including my engagement ring and our wedding bands. We struggled to reside paycheck to paycheck, consuming the least expensive meals that we could and juggling the bills that we were falling so far behind on. When it is a selection in between material items and meals on the table, it truly is an simple selection.
Flash forward 9 years right after promoting our original rings. I am blessed to say that we produced it via that debt and survived numerous struggles. Did we get married young? Yes, definitely. I was 19 and Adam was 20. Had been we clueless? Most definitely. Was it tough? With out a doubt. Would either of us alter a thing? Never ever.
And now I have my rings to remind me of that. We would never ever adjust a factor. Our road has had so many obstacles in it. It is been challenging. Our marriage has weathered some storms. But all of those struggles gave us opportunities to pick. Possibilities to look to God, to develop in faith and to develop in our marriage. I am so blessed to be right here right now, and blessed to contact Adam my husband. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for us and can not wait to maintain on growing.
