I am sitting here today reflecting on the reality that I am 31 years old, just crossing over 9 blissful months of marriage to my best friend, and I am truly the happiest I have ever been!  Now don’t get me wrong, we have gone through some trying times with financial challenges and me being so sick for months, but at the end of the day, I get to do it all with my best friend.  I get to wake up to his sweet little face and hear him say “good morning my love” and it makes every hard day worth it.

Let me tell you this much- I am SO glad I waited for God’s best!

I married a man of compassion, faithfulness, tenderness, and consistency.  He shows me the face of Jesus every day, and serves me relentlessly.  Often I cry, wondering what I did to deserve such a gift as a husband.  SERIOUSLY.  He puts up with my crazy, loves me through my stubbornness and calls me higher into who I am supposed to be as a daughter of God.  He is my best friend.  He makes me laugh, sings silly songs with me, and always tries to find the silver lining when all I can see is grey.

I love you Justin Wade Thomas, and cannot believe we are 3 months away to celebrating our 1 year!!!  What a gift you are to me xox
