I love my life. I wouldn't want to be doing anything else. 10 years ago today, Chris Jones and I began this crazy journey that is our life. He has given me five of the most beautiful children ever created and one precious baby we will meet in heaven. We have moved 4 times in 10 years and no matter where I live, I am right where I want to be and that is beside the man I adore and couldn't live without. He is a wonderful father, loving husband, and the anchor in our family. He's not perfect but neither am I. Not a day goes by that I shouldn't thank God for this man. Some days I forget to; the days when life gets in the way and kids are loud and messy but when I watch him lead our family and train our children, my heart explodes with love and gratitude for him. God has blessed us in ways that money and materials can't even compare to. People only see the outside: what size house we have, what cars we drive, how much we make a year, and how expensive our large family is. They don't see the love and tenderness in our family. The happiness and joy God has given us despite sometimes having nothing. But I would rather live in a box with him than be seperated. As we look towards our next 10 years and then the 10 years after that, and eventually the rest of our lives, I know that no matter what God has in store for us, the richer or poorer, sickness or health, it would be an honor to spend it by his side, enouraging him and loving him.
