Nine Years Grateful
I think an insane amount about my various hopes and dreams for my life. It's hard to know when to say, 'don't be absurd--give that up,' and when to say, 'go for it!' It's difficult to evaluate what will be the best for our whole family. I don't believe in being a martyr mother, but I do believe that 'mother' is the most important of all of my titles and that raising these four children is of far greater importance than anything else I'm doing.
This week Taylor and I are celebrating nine years of marriage. Nine! And we feel so grateful. Grateful we still like each other so much and laugh so hard together and feel so united on all fronts. Grateful we have four beautiful children to love. Grateful we have warmth and comfort and security. Grateful we have so many people in our life who support us and teach us. Grateful to know that God is real and that He loves us, even when we don't act super lovable. Grateful for the faith that defines us and informs every decision we make and makes us truly, genuinely, wholly happy.
Happy Thanksgiving from the Blue House, y'all!
