Our beginning was so humble. When we decided to get married, I thought everyone would be so mad at me. Most of my family didn’t even know I was dating someone. The decision to get married appeared so impulsive and irresponsible - two words no one associated with my name- but God gave me peace about the decision. I knew it was the right thing to do.
I didn’t ask for help to throw a wedding together in just a couple weeks because I didn’t want to inconvenience anyone, but it was offered and received. Our family, friends, and church made it happen and supported us. My aunt made invitations, Your Mom made outfits and found me a dress to borrow (YES I borrowed a wedding dress), my Mom bought the cake, our church decorated for us, my uncle took pictures, a friend did my hair, etc and we all pulled it off. It didn’t really matter what the wedding was like because In the end, we were married. And nine months later everyone finally believed I wasn’t pregnant 😉. J/k, I’m sure no one ever thought that.
Two weeks after we said I do, we said goodbye when you went to Korea for a year. The cards were definitely stacked against us. But with God all things are possible. Our first four years we spent more time getting TO each other than being together. The last 12 years we have tried to make up for that lost time. I don’t think we ever will.
The time I spend with you will never be enough. We will never talk, laugh, cry, or love each other enough for me to be satisfied. I always want and need more time with you. We have weathered some storms and cried our share of tears and will continue to do so, together.
Thank you so much for pursuing me in exactly the right way! Thank you For listening to God and leading our family.
Happy Anniversary to my Terrybear! My forever love, best friend, and all those other things I won’t include here because this post is already crazy long. #sweetsixteen #sixteenyearsandcounting #thisiswhatlovelookslike #iwonderwhatourhashtagwouldhavebeen
