August 22, 1997 ( I was very pregnant)I'm sort of blog lifting this idea. I would add the link to where I'm lifting it from, but blogger is not working for me right now. It was a very clever post from a very cleaver blogger who happens to be a very good friend. So there! She wrote a letter to her 16 year old self. CLEVER!!!
So I thought....What would I say to this sweet young couple with the whole world a head of them?
The little boy in your belly is about to change your lives. He will capture your hearts and bring you closer to each other. He will make you want to work hard, do the right things, and create a loving home to raise him in.
From this point forward this little boy will show you the meaning of family and what it truly means to love something.
Over the next 11 years you will have the support of good friends and family. This is important and what it is all about.
You will learn learn how to become more patient and less selfish.
Your ability to endure deaths, tragedy, illness, and everyday stress will be tested,Sometimes to the point of unbearable, but you will come out on the other side with each other....this is what will matter.
Your love for each other will grow stronger. You will still be best friends after all these years and will not know what to do with out each other. You will finish each others sentences, have the same ideas and the same time (it will get creepy sometimes) and you will truly know love, with each other and for you kids.
The photo above was taken at my Father in laws wedding. Today is their wedding anniversary. I wish them a Happy Anniversary and hope they have a good time on their trip to the coast...I'm jealous!!!
