My Husband

Today my husband and I are celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary.  These days, that is a pretty big deal.  I have to be honest, it is a great feeling to be at the 11 year mark and still feel like this is the person I will be with forever.  Our marriage has been hard.  Not so much because of us (although he would say it is hard b/c of me) but more because of the curve balls that life has thrown us but no matter what our battle, we always come out the other side standing by each other.

I am SOOOOO thankful for a Godly husband who would rather be home with his family than anywhere else.  I have an amazing husband that has done great things for our family.  I am thankful for his ability to get us out of debt and to be able to live a simple life without all the stress and burdens.  I am thankful that he is such a hard worker with a bigger plan in mind.  He loves me always, which I assure you isn't always easy.  He takes time with his kids and puts them first even when they insist that mommy does everything better:)

I don't want to make him or my marriage sound perfect b/c we all know that we are both far from perfect.  No one can make me as mad as he can.  We fight.  We give each other the silent treatment.  We disagree on a lot of life's issues.  We disagree on parenting our kids from time to time.  He doesn't allow me to eat out as much as I would like:)  He REFUSES to smile in pictures even though I beg him to!  He doesn't pick up hints very well (especially the hint where I say "will you bring me flowers" b/c goodness knows I have never gotten real flowers from him). 

I snap at him but he takes it.  I get aggravated with others outside our home but he reminds me to worry about only what is under our roof.  I am a clutter bug that lives with a closet OCD husband but he never ever says a word about it.  Since I don't eat meat on the bone, I don't cook it but I have never heard a complaint.  I have been obsessed with my business and working on it non stop for months but he doesn't complain and only supports me.  I am horrible at saving money but if money is needed, he takes care of it.  He makes me laugh!  He is never afraid to apologize.

I am so thankful for this man!  I don't know what I did to be blessed with him but he makes my heart happy more than he will ever know (even when he makes me mad)!  Happy 11 year wedding anniversary to my sweetie!



  1. I can't wait to hear what he has planned, enjoy your day together! :)

  2. Tabatha...This brought tears to my eyes! You are a very blessed woman. No marriage is ever perfect, but it's our mindset about taking it seriously when we vow before God and love that keeps it going. I beat myself up every day that mine has failed...but I have to keep reminding myself that I did everything I could as a Godly woman to keep it alive. It is hard to find a Godly man these days...and I am so glad to hear there are still those type of men out there.Kuddos to both of you for making it 11 years! I hope to hear you make it to at least 50! :)
