This weekend I’m in Kentucky for a wedding. As I see everyone running around rushing to get everything done, it makes me think back to the day I got married to D. What an amazing time in my life. It has taken me years to reconstruct that day in my thoughts. It went by like a blur. Even though I tried to take everything in, it seemed to blow by me. I’ve known both the bride and groom for a couple of years now. They’ve become very good friends of mine.

Watching them go through this process has reminded me of my journey in marriage. Now, almost seven years later, I am extremely grateful for the woman I was blessed to marry. Life has a way of taking the marriage relationship and putting you in circumstances that will either make you or break you. Thankfully, our relationship has grown ever stronger over these last seven years. It has been a joy.
