Has it really been 6 years...has it really only been 6 years!



Today is our 6th wedding anniversary and while that doesn't really seem that long, I can hardly remember what life was like without John. We have been through so much together in those 6 years and this year especially has been full of so many challenges and changes. Its amazing to me that in one of the years where we have done so much and had so much happen that we have come to a point where its been one of the best years of our marriage because we truly can rely on one another and support one another.

We have finally come to that point where we can both drop our pride a little faster, apologise a little faster, forgive a little faster, and be willing to let go of the things that really don't matter that use to seem like a big deal. We are comfortable enough with ourselves and each other to truly be one in all things.

We have learned so much in these 6 years and I cant even imagine all the wonderful lessons and stages we have to reach in the future if 6 years has brought us this far. I was thinking about something the Aunt in Work and the Glory said when her niece is struggling between two boys. She says, "you have to wonder if the fruit is going to sweeten with age or just go bland." I'm very lucky that I married a man who has sweetened so much in time and that I love more now than when I married him.

I'm so sorry for not getting a card out to you and John. You are the perfect couple and we are so glad John came into your life and you went into his. You make beautiful babies, decisions, friends, companions, decorators and business partners. Congratulations on the first 6 years of your new eternal life together!

Sorry Lisa, we tried to move your baby bottle along so that it was closer to your due date. Dumb computer wouldn't budge.

We love the pictures. We'll send some cute one of Caleb and Davis!

Thank you for all you did for us while we were down there. It was awesome!

Wow, congrats on 6 years! I thought you got married a year BEFORE us, not after us. (Maybe since you're on kid #3!) John is so lucky to have Lisa (and vice versa, of course). When I've seen Lisa as a married woman, she has always been glowing and incredibly happy. What a perfect fit for eternity!
