4 years....

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!


I know it's cliche' to say, "wow, it's already been __yrs.." Well, I really can't believe how fast time flies. At the same time, I hardly remember life before knowing Matt. It really does seem that he has been a part of my life forever. I love the bond we share and am happy that we have eternity to love each other, and to learn to love each other better. I love Matt more than my inadequate expression, but I always want to love him better, and be better for him. I know I make mistakes every day, but I am thankful for his sweet, forgiving nature. He lives each day in humility and grace, and accepts me as I am. I know that as the years go by, our love will grow and mature, and we will learn how to love each other better.


Some friends of ours blew this picture up into about a 24"X36" giant posterboard to hang in Matt's hospital room. He wasn't speaking yet, but gave a big smile and thumbs up. He stared at it all of the time. This picture always brings up a lot of those memories. It is a special one, and another one of those positive affirmations.



Apparently he's excited....I didn't know he could jump that high.




Happy anniversary to you Matt. I love you and hope to spend many, many more years of peace and happiness with you..... here's to ETERNITY!

Happy Anniversary! What beautiful pictures...and what a beautiful couple (inside and out)! I just love you guys!


Hey Jess, i just wanted to give you the heads up that in the next couple of days you should be getting something in the mail from me. it's one of those silly chain letter kind of things, (that normally i don't participate in), but this one actually sounded pretty good. it's a children's book thing, and essentially you only need to send out one book - and in turn - you should receive 36 kids books. i mainly wanted to try this because i'm a sucker for children's books! ruby and i just love them! so hopefully you'll want to participate too. you should be getting the letter and instructions in the next couple of days...
love ya.
