The wind has been howling (literally) for over a day now. I woke up to it again this morning. I’ve never heard or felt wind like this. Even in the house, windows are rattling a bit because of this incredible wind. It’s really quite amazing and will be most memorable. We may even get a bit of snow. I guess we are finally getting our cold fall. We really have been spoiled this month by such mild weather.

Why am I making note of this today and not yesterday?
Well, today is also my ninth anniversary. Perhaps this windy weather will help me remember the specifics of our ninth anniversary years and years from now.
I don’t really have a big tribute planned out to post. (Or even a picture.) But I wanted to acknowledge this special day. It really is significant. These anniversaries. And birthdays. And other milestones.
They define where we are and where we’ve been. And also where we are going: What will life be like nine years from now, I wonder. Very different, I am sure, with a bunch of teenagers in the house.
These past nine years have brought me and my husband so many blessings. Six of which have been in the form of children. And we’ve been blessed in so many other ways, too. Even the ways in which we have been stretched have been blessings in disguise.
So, today I am simply grateful to God for the gift of my husband and our life together. The Lord gave us to one another. And He has guided us every step of the way. He picked the best husband for me. And all I can say (again) is that, today, I am truly grateful.

  2. Happy Anniversary! Maybe the winds were a sign to remember that the Holy Spirit has blessed your marriage nine years ago and He continues to bless it today!
