Five Years!

Pretty much have had the bestest 5 year anniversary and New Year celebration EVER. :) Jim and I had a sweet date! Thanks to my dear, Ju for watching the kiddos for us! We started off at HuHot (a favorite!) and upon leaving (heading to Faith Bookstore to pick up a new Bible for the Biblecase he got me for Christmas), we found that our ignition wasn't working! The key wouldn't turn! And for 20 minutes we tried and tried. It was then, that I presented his tie chain that he'd been needing for quite some time and that was a good pick-me-up from the bummer of a non-working vehicle. Finally, he decided to walk to Home Depot across the street to get a new key made (maybe THAT was the problem?) and I headed into Family Christian Bookstore to browse the Bibles there. He met me to say that the key idea didn't work and so he called a locksmith. 3 hours later and after a welcomed run-in and an ice cream desert with some good friends, we were off to the next thing on the date list. :) But, not before Jim got his cuff links he'd been needing, especially with a particular purple shirt I love that doesn't have buttons on the cuff. :) Yay for Kohl's coupons and a buy one get one 1/2 deal the night before! ANYway...after our festivities, we enjoyed a midnight chat at WalMart with a sweet couple that we know that we ran into...so random and so fun! :) Finally, to relieve our dear friend of our children...it was only 2am. ;) We enjoyed the ride home, sleepy kiddos in the back...but, by no means was our special time coming to an end. As we were getting the girls out of the car, I let Josefine give Jim his final gift from me. A new wallet (another something he's needed to replace for awhile now...he likes those practical, useful gifts). After we put the girls back to bed, Jim and I prayed together to thank God for our marriage and dedicated the coming days, months and years to Him...and when he was done, he pulled out the most beautiful ring...something to accent my solitaire. Something I NEVER would have thought of or expected. What a guy...WHAT. A. GUY. I felt sooo spoiled and loved! This is something I may think would happen for year 10, but WOW...so, so sweet. I have married a very selfless and giving man. He doesn't have to give "things" to show his love. He is a doer and a servant at heart. But, when he gives (and he does a lot), he GIVES and does so with his whole heart. I love my man and feel so blessed to be by his side these past 5 years and look so very forward to learning to love him more...learning to see God's grace through eachother...together. ♥
