An Ode to my Husband

Dear Sweet, Sweet, Mark,
Even though you will probally not see this until it mentioned to you by someone that actually reads this blog, ahem, I wanted to dedicate this post to you. As of today, we have been married for six years, and have seen challenges that many will never see. You have stood by me steadfast and true through glaucoma, infertility, job loss, temper tantrums (who me?), legal issues and countless long term house guests. You have supported my desire to go to school, and my desire to be a homemaker...even though our nest has remained empty. You listen to me overreacting..and let me do it, while knowing that I will eventually come to see reason. You do yard work with me even though you hate it, and don't see the point beyond mowing the grass. Yet, you do it because it is important to me. You are my best friend and closest confident, and my every day begins with thankfulness to have you in my life.
Happy Anniversary baby,
