Today is our wedding anniversary. It has been 10 years. I think of that day 10 years ago, sitting at the salon getting my hair and make up done... driving to the temple in traffic due to a St. Patrick's day parade, and Robert anxiously calling my cell "Where are you? You are late!!" (Little did I know, that wasn't going to be the last time I heard him ask that question and tell me I am late!) I rememer being nervous, not because I wasn't sure it was the right step, but just the whole overwelming idea of "My Wedding Day" and wanting everything to be just so perfect...
Here I am 10 years later, overwelmed still, but for different reasons. I think about all the dreams and hopes I had for myself long ago, when I was a little girl and through out my childhood of having that wonderful husband and those great kids... being a mommy. As I was older, there was a time in my life I wasn't sure I would ever get that husband. I was fearful after a bad relationship that hurt my self-esteem I might not get what I always dreamed of. I feared I would have to settle for something much less than what I once thought I deserved.
Even now after 10 years of being married, I still am overwelmed that I got just what I always dreamed up... my "happily ever after" as I wished for long ago as a little girl. There are so many things that I have now that I am so grateful for, and all because of Robert.
Even though there won't be anything extra ordinary planned for today to celebrate our ten years of being married.... It will be a day I will always treasure, the day that all my dreams came true!
