Thirteen Years

Today Michael and I are celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary. Man I sure do love him! It amazes me how you can fall in love with the same individual in so many different ways throughout all the seasons of your life together. You start off with that attraction that brings butterflies and causes you to lose your breath. (I love that part!)

How blessed I am to spend a lifetime with someone who loves me with a love that is neverending. It is so rare. I find myself at times, when we're both in a room full of people, just staring at him and REALLY taking the time to see him. Do you know what I mean? I realize again how handsome he is. I realize how genuine he is and I fall in love with him all over again.

This past summer while we were at Disney, Mike and I were standing in line for a ride with two of our boys. I looked over at a bench nearby and saw the sweetest sight. This adorable couple was sitting there whispering in each other's ear and sharing with one another. She was wearing Mickey ears and he looked at her as if it were their first date. I remember thinking how timeless the two of them were sitting in the midst of all the craziness around them. I felt myself staring so long that I thought, "Go ahead Rebecca, just take a picture!" So I did!

Happy Anniversary! Our 13th is in a week.... I'm so glad! :-)

Very sweet shot, btw. I hope we're like that when we're old and gray.

Hi girl!
Happy Anniversary. I was remembering our conversation back in May...how you said that Michael has told you that he didnt just make the marriage commitment to you, but most of all to God. I was so encouraged to hear that! In a world where marriages are dismissed on a daily basis, that is an awesome truth of God's view on marriage (and His word) . May you both have many many more years of honoring God in your marriage. Love ya-Angela
