I don't even know if I can do this post justice. I am incredibly grateful for my man. We have been together for 25 years, married for 24 this July and I can honestly say there is no one else I would rather be with. That is not to say that every moment has been bliss- far from it. There have been good, joyful loving wonderful times. and there have been bad, moody, frustration suxy times too. as well as the just plain mundane, hectic and ordinary.
Such is a thing called life. All these days , emotion and events fall into every ones timetable. Its who you spend those times, whatever they may be, that counts. and I have been privileged enough to spend those times with a kind, smart man named Marc Hill, After so many mistakes (read date bad boys reeling in selfishness) how I landed this gem is purely grace.

We are so very different in personality. I'm loud, he's quiet. I'm impulsive, he's contemplative. I think out loud, he thinks before he speaks. He cooks, I don't. The list could go on and on . I once told someone that Marc married me so he would have some fun and spice in his life and I married him so I would stay out of jail. So far , so good! ( seriously, you have no idea)
But for all we have that is opposite, we have the core things down. We're both honest, we're both loyal. We both fail. We both forgive. We both love and trust God. We both work hard. We both are willing to sacrifice for the other. We are both kind (in very different ways)
And we are both fun , also in different ways. We both love our children unconditionally.

Our love has changed and grown over the years. It manifest itself differently than when we were younger. We are still very much attracted to each other but flirting is where it's at and on weeknights and where it ends because baby we are 3 kids, 2 dogs and a mortgage into this thing- were kinda tired. :)
But were closer than ever. We know how to love each other, whats important to the other one.
We know each others love language and we know how to just "be". Even if we are not doing the same thing, we can be in the same room, near each other . We enjoy each other.
Friday Marc will be having surgery to remove part of his colon. While this isn't celebratory news, it is news that has a lots of reasons to be grateful :
there is no cancer.
we got the surgical procedure to laproscopic along with the surgeon we want.
He is young and this is semi elective to remove damage from 10 years of diverticulitis.
The surgery will improve the quality of his life.
We have parents that are going to come and help .
Friends that are praying for us and helping with our children and
most of all a God who is the healer of all flesh.
So I am forever grateful to be married to Marc Hill.
I am blessed to be loved by him.
