Daniel and I had a nice little lunch together the other day (maybe it was dinner? anyway both kids were asleep), and we didn’t have our usual lots of things to talk about, so I asked him where he was 10 years ago. He had just started his mission and was getting ready to leave the MTC and head out for Korea. 10 years ago, I was doing summer stock in Maine, performing in The King and I at the time, if the dates are right in my head.

We went through each year- 9 years ago, 8 years ago, right up to this time last year. It was a fun little walk down memory lane, to go from the few years before we met, up through our whole relationship (of over 7 years now). We said things from “proselyting in Korea” and “performing in a theme park,” to “probably making out with you” and “road tripping across the USA together” and “throwing up from first trimester sickness.”

We’ve fit a lot of experiences into our 7 years together- enough to make me positive that we are in this together for the long (long, long, eternity-long) haul.

The past several days have all started with me feeling like they were going to be bad days, but Daniel did something different each day to turn it around for me. It was almost as if he was a super hero, physically grabbing the day and flipping it upside down.

I love my husband, and I can’t put into words how much I love our children.

I have a family here on Earth
They are so good to me
I want to share my life with them
Through all eternity
Families can be together forever
Through Heavenly Father’s plan
I always want to be with my own family
And the Lord has shown me how I can
The Lord has shown me how I can

Love it? Share it!
