Happy Valentines Day!
Mark and I never make a big deal out of Valentines Day. I feel like it's a commercial day and we should show love to each other daily.
I am going to dedicate this post to Mark though.
I usually don't blog about him, not on purpose but it's usually the kids doing cute things for me to post about.
Today though it's all about my husband.
We met on a blind date- I know- but it actually worked! It's kind of a funny story- we went out with the couple that set us up and Mark had arranged a signal to them- if he didn't like me he was going to smoke because the other couple new I didn't like smoking. He didn't light up and quite for good soon after!
I knew soon after we started dating that I was going to marry him. I had my pearl 1 month into our relationship and 6 months down the road he proposed to me. We were married a little over a year from when we met.
In April it will be 17 years!
God has blessed me with a wonderful husband who always puts our needs before his own. He goes into work around 5 in the morning so he can get done what he needs to and come home at 5 and not miss time with the kids at night.
He has been my rock through these years. When we had miscarriages and lost our twins it was one of the hardest times in my life. Mark was strong for me and patient to let me grieve as long as I needed.
This summer when I was struggling with health issues- I was a mess. Again, Mark let me lean on him and stayed strong for me.
The kids are blessed with a dad who loves to play with them and spend time with them.
He's involved at church and works with the youth and really enjoys it. I'm glad my kids have an example of a dad who loves the Lord and tries to live a life that shows it.
I love you hon- Looking forward to another 50 years or so of Happy Valentines Days!
