Three Year Anniversary

Happy 3 year anniversary babe! I truly cannot believe it has already been that long. I know it is a short amount of time in the grand scheme of things but I feel like it was just yesterday when we were saying our vows to each other. Ever since then I have been thanking God every single day we have had together.
God has taken us on an amazing ride and there is no other place I'd rather be then sitting next to you. I have prayed for you since I was a little girl and so have many of my family members. All the things I have asked for in a husband were completely surpassed far beyond what I could have ever imagined. The Lord knows us completely and knew we were the perfect match. I feel at home with you, and I never thought someone could be an extension of me but yet you are. I now know what it means to become one.
In the past three years we have already experienced our fair share of joys and sorrows. From death to birth, to new jobs, to moving three times, buying and selling houses, to my mom's house fire, to health scares in our family and through it all the Lord has shown us how to grow stronger and rely on Him first and foremost. All that said, I know that God has fortified us and strengthened our marriage through the trials.
How would I describe our marriage to each other in the past three years? It's playing cards in bed. It's staying up until 4 a.m. watching a whole season of LOST. It's looking forward to crashing on the couch together to watch our DVRed shows. It's laughing hysterically at the parts of a movie that nobody else thinks is funny. It's cherishing the time we have together driving to and from work because we know it will not last forever (not everybody can IM their spouse at work!). It's getting excited to have lunch with each other everyday. It's making the time every night to listen to each other's day and allowing for each other to destress. It's the surprise dates that make our hearts flutter. It's dreaming about our future. It's allowing each other to not be perfect. It's spending every waking second together and never getting sick of one another (I never knew that was possible). It's our marriage and it's not perfect but it's us.
I have been blessed with a best friend and soul mate for life. I never want to take advantage of the gift God has bless me with. My prayer everyday, is that my love will be more like God's love for you, because there is no love that can compare to it. I can not wait to see what adventures God has in store for our lives.
