It was 8 years ago today.....

that I married the love of my life! He has given me a most wonderful life, and I am so eternally grateful. I am honored to be his helper, his lover and the mama of his most beautiful children!

Here's the lyrics to the song sung at our wedding: I Will Be Here by Steven Curtis Chapman:

Tomorrow mornin' if you wake up
And the sun does not appear
I...I will be here
If in the dark we lose sight of love
Hold my hand and have no fear
'Cause I...I will be here
I will be here...When you feel like bein' quiet
When you need to speak your mind
I will listen
And I will be here
When the laughter turns to cryin'
Through the winnin' and losin' and tryin'
We'll be together
'Cause I will be here
Tomorrow mornin' if you wake up
And the future is unclear
I...I'll be here
Just as sure as seasons are made for change
Our lifetimes are made for years
I...I will be here
I will be here....You can cry on my shoulder
When the mirror tells us we're older
I will hold you
And I will be here
To watch you grow in beauty
And tell you all the things you are to me
I will be here
I will be true
To the promise I have made
To you and to the One who gave you to me
I...I will be here
And just as sure as seasons are made for change
Our lifetimes are made for years
'Cause I...I will be here....
We'll be together
'Cause I will be here

Throughout the years, we've had dark times, we've had joyful times, we've had times when we're quiet, and times we can't say enough. But one thing is certain, God has blessed us greatly over these last 8 years, and I'm so thankful!

My uncle sang this song at my wedding! What an incredible song and what beautiful memories it brings to mind . . . .
Happy Anniversary!
PS- I'll be getting some helpful menu planning info to you soon! Thanks for stopping by!

Stay, stay at home, my heart, and rest;
Home-keeping hearts are happiest,
For those that wander they know not where
Are full of trouble and full of care;
To stay at home is best.

Weary and homesick and distressed,
They wander east, they wander west,
And are baffled and beaten and blown about
By the winds of the wilderness of doubt;
To stay at home is best.

Then stay at home, my heart, and rest;
The bird is safest in its nest;
O'er all that flutter their wings and fly
A hawk is hovering in the sky;
To stay at home is best.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
