One Year Later

28 Jan

A year ago today I married my best friend and the man of my dreams. I stood at the end of the aisle waiting to walk to my future, having no idea what all God had in store for us, but I knew as I walked down to this amazing man, I was leaving behind all my hurts and rejection from the past. I was letting love into my life and for the first time ever, had NO fear about that.

The past 365 days, have been some of the best. There are times I cannot believe this is my life. I get to wake up everyday to THIS. You see, when you’ve been where I have, in the pits of loneliness and despair you don’t take a life so richly blessed for granted.

I am so thankful for the past year of marriage. I am thankful I have a husband who honors God and puts him first. I am thankful that he has accepted me and all my flaws and inspires me to be better. I am thankful that he loves my daughters as his own and strives to be a Godly influence in their lives. I am thankful that we laugh together and love spending time with each other. I am thankful that he listens to me and does all he can to be my rock. I am thankful that he does not put up with my crap and keeps me in check, but more so, I am thankful when he does this, he does it in love. I am thankful that he is the kind of father to Reese and Haley that makes God proud. I am thankful that he does not take himself to seriously and knows that communication is everything. I am thankful he has torn down my walls and has helped me to trust and never wonder if I am good enough. I am thankful that he makes me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world.

I can’t believe we are wrapping up the first chapter in the book of marriage, but I am even more excited about what God has for us in the next. Erik Elliott, I love you more today than ever and I am proud, honored and blessed to be your bride.
