As a family we have a lot of celebrations throughout the autumn, we added one more this year, and then right into the winter holidays. Out of all those special days today, January 3rd, is my favourite. Today is the 18th anniversary from when Jen and I were married.
We never have big celebrations or buy each other gifts, but I love taking the time to think back on our life together so far. We’ve been through so much and this past year has been no exception. Honestly I’m not sure how I would have made it through without her, and even if I could I certainly wouldn’t want to.
Jen is the best person I know. She makes me a better person. Our children are a testament to the mother and role model she is as well.
This family and life we’ve grown together are more then I ever dreamed of, and certainly more then I deserve. For some reason she still puts up with me and seems to usually like having me around.
Though life doesn’t look the way I pictured it would even just a year ago, and I’m confident there will be many more challenges and unseen changes going forward, I know we’ll make it through together and come out better on the other side.
