Lucky

On August 23, 2002 we began our journey of life together. I remember so clearly the joy and excitement I felt. 

The only down side to the day was that the Mt. Timpanogos temple spire was covered in scaffolding, to repair some cracks that had formed underneath Angel Moroni, which were caused by some lightning storms a few weeks before. So, we didn't bother getting many full shots of the temple since it was under construction. Besides that... oh, and the small fire that started at our reception that night... but, besides those two things, the day was perfect!

Yesterday afternoon I came across an old journal and read something I wrote on December 31, 2001. We hadn't been dating very long at that point, but we were already talking about our future together. Here's part of that entry:

"As far as my wish for my future with Marc... I don't really know. I know that I just want to take one day at a time - suck the marrow out of each day, enjoy our time together, learn to trust him more and more, and prove that he can trust me completely. I guess my wish is to build a friendship so strong that we'll always be each other's best friend and that through everything that comes our way, we'll only be strengthened even more and bonded together."

I found that entry to echo so much of what I feel now. Six years ago, I had no idea we would be where we are today... but, I am more grateful than I've ever been to have my best friend by my side to go through life with. Our marriage and our friendship have definitely been strengthened through all that we've been through. I'm beyond grateful for our temple sealing - it has come to mean even more to me, knowing that our sealing extends to our girls. They are ours forever. There isn't anything that brings more joy and peace than that knowledge.

We will be together forever.

Marc, I love you! I'm so lucky to be married to my best friend!

Happy Anniversary! That video was great! You guys are just so cute together. I think I need to take more pictures of just Eric and I together. And then I need to send them to you to make a video for me. I hope that you have a fantastic day together!

Happy Anniversary! We loved the pictures. I agree with Jaime, we need to take more couple shots, I don't think that I have been out from behind the camera in years! And there is that issue with Aaron being serious too...
We love you guys

wow, that was strange coming to see your blog again and seeing that it was your anniversary today. august 23rd was our original wedding date, we even had the temple scheduled and everything, but then changed it to the 21st because of some scheduling things. that is ironic.
thank you for your words. i am glad you have your best friend here by your side to help you through your difficult trial.
i wish i had my best friend by my side to help me through, but if he were here, i wouldn't be going through this difficult trial, right?
happy anniversary.
with love...
