Walking the line between nerd and cool.

Nine Years

Jaime pointed out in the comments on my 500th post (which I posted about an hour ago) that today is also our anniversary.  One of the reasons for biting the bullet on the 500th post is to get an anniversary post up. 🙂

So today marks nine years of married life together for us.  It’s been a wonderful ride for us so far and we look forward to many more in the future.  I’ve now spent 28% of my life married to Jaime and another 11% dating.  That’s almost 40% of our life together.  It’s amazing to think about.

There are so many things I’m thankful for about Jaime that they are too numerous to go into here.  Just a small sampling of those include:

  • She understands me (and still likes me!).
  • She moved to Texas with me when it meant seeing our family only a couple times a year at best.
  • She laughs and jokes with me.
  • She makes me a better person.
  • She encourages me.
  • She sacrifices for me.
  • She gave up her teaching career to follow me to Buffalo, where we weren’t able to find a teaching position.
  • She gives her all to being a great Mom to Addison.
  • She walks with me in ministry.
  • She helps me keep my priorities straight.

I could keep going on, but I won’t.  It’s enough to say that I’m so thankful to God for giving me Jaime. What a wonderful blessing she has been to me and so many others over her lifetime. Addison and I are better for having Jaime as Mom and Wife.
