Happy Month-aversary Sweetheart!

Every month on the 17th and 18th there is a Month-aversary celebrated in our house. It's our way of remembering to slow down and celebrate our marriage and being together. Our first date was on Sept. 18th so when the 18th comes up we celebrate another month of being together. Then we eloped and got married just one day short of 4 months after our first date and were married on Jan. 17th. So on the 17th we celebrate being blessed with another month of a wonderful marriage together. Yesterday was our 112th month of being married, and today is then our 116th month from our 1st date. The fact that someone can put up with me for that long does indeed call for celebration.
I am always being told by others how wonderful he is and I couldn't agree more. Anyone that knows him knows that he is an exceptional person! Never before I have I seen such an involved and outstanding Father (although my Dad is in a very close second), and as a husband.... there are no words for how good he is to me! I wonder what it is that I did that pleased God enough to bless me with the gratest man alive, or is it that Jim did something really bad and I lucked out and got him as punishment to him? Hmmm...either way.... Thank you Lord for this very great man in my life!
And thank you Jim for living these words from our wedding in our every day life- Love is patient, love is kind. It does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
I love you more then ever!

It sounds like you have a pretty incredible husband, but he can't be as amazing as my wife. She is the most wonderful person in the entire world. We too have been married for 112 months, and I have been blessed every single day of them. She is so thoughtful, loving, and giving, it makes me wish I was more like her.
It sounds like your husband is quite the fortunate man from reading all your blogs. I think he is the one who is blessed to have you.

Hmmmm...anonymous...You've been married for 112 months also? What are the odds of that? No, no...if you are who I think you are don't try to start actually figuring out the odds!!! :)

Thanks, I'm glad you think that he is the fortunate one. Lets go for 10x's as many months and celebrate 1120 months together. Hmmmm... I wonder what you are thinking in respons to that first. Is it that your surprised I figured out 112 x 10, or are you mentally calculating how many years 1120 months would be and realizing that it's more months then we logically have left to live? I'm betting on the later. Let me know when you get home if I'm right, okay?

Love you!
