Super Mom


Today is our wedding anniversary. Wow. We made it to 9 years. Every year I am amazed that we made another year.

Tommie and I go through many many ups and downs in our marriage. We will probably continue to do so. Yet, we are still together. In many ways he has settled for me and I have settled for him. We both know that. Maybe we aren’t a perfect match but we look beyond that and look at our family and realize that whatever the issue, we need to work it out. We need to stay a family.  Look beyond just the two of us, to our family.  Not just for the kids alone but us as a family.

Tommie, for all the times you have forgiven me – Thank You. For all the times you drive me to the brink – I forgive you.  Thank you for trying the be the man I want you to be. Thank you for the three amazing little boys we have.

You and me – we should write a book. We most definitely don’t have the perfect marriage but we do know how to hang on.

We sure have endurance.

I still love you Babe.

  7. Happy Anniversary! My husband and I will be married 12 years in February. On our 5th, we looked back at all the things we thought about marriage when we went through our pre-marriage counseling and just laugh at what we assumed it would be. Not quite what we thought but its better now than when we started. We both made a few attitude adjustments! Prayers for a stronger and stronger relationship for you and Tommie day by day!!

  18. Marriage is a constant work in progress, as an engaged “child”, no one ever tells you just how hard it can be. what a wonderful commitment that you have to one another though. Best wishes today!

    Hope you had a lovely evening. Hope that Tommie took you out for a romantic meal, just the 2 of you. Hope your folks or M&M looked after the boys for you. Hope that Tommie remembered. Hope it wasn’t the same as last year.
