Instantly it took me back to 2001 when I met the love of my life. Wow, has it really been 13 years ago that we met? Looking at that picture I was thinking that was a whole life ago. It certainly seems that way.
We have changed physically and aged; I didn’t think so until I really looked at this picture. We have also changed in who we are apart and who we are together, changed in our parenting styles over the past seven years and many other areas.
Over the past 13 years we have done a lot… Clint graduated college, we got married, lived in apartment, bought a house, I graduated college, sold a house and bought another one, had a baby, Clint graduated with his masters, moved again into our current home, and had another baby. In between all of this we lived a busy life and loved our little family!
All of that to say, taking my mind back to a little less than 13 years ago when this picture was taken made me think of the time my husband and I fell in love with each other. God has had His hand over every single step of our marriage and family. I cannot imagine not “doing life” with Clint and what a blessing the past 13 years have been.
Take some time out of your day and look back a few years, where have you been? Where are you headed?
