this week we celebrate 11... yes 11... years of marriage! YOWZA! God has brought us SO far in those 11 years. It never ceases to amaze me at how blessed my life is because of Andy.
I have come to appreciate him and his love SO MUCH MORE over the last few months. He was so supportive through the whole cancer "thing"... I know that if it hadn't been for his encouragement some days that I might have just simply given up.
I have come to love his thirst for knowledge. It HAS to be his spiritual gift. He remembers things SO well... always has odd tidbits of information about the most random things. He has an amazing memory for biblical history... puts me to shame! He is constantly reading (literally... getting him to come down for dinner at times is IMPOSSIBLE) trying to learn more and grow deeper in his knowledge of God, the Bible, and just about every other random thing.
I have come to understand that sometimes... I just have to let him do things his way. It's okay for things not to be done the way I want them to be done. Example... emptying the dishwasher (random... but I KNOW all you wives out there know exactly what I mean here...). I always put things back in the exact same place. He does not. I find things in the most random places... not really sure why the were put where they were. Makes me crazy... but also makes me appreciate the fact that he does help out... sometimes :).
I look forward to our future together... no matter how long it may be. Where God is taking us... watching our kids grow... spending much needed quality time together.
It's been an amazing journey so far... and I can't wait to see what else is to come!!
