So we've been marred five years now. Who can believe that?  It's crazy to me that it's been that long, but it also seems like the people we were on March 5, 2005 are so different than who we are today.  As James and I were walking back to our car after Phantom last night (yes, my husband picks the best surprises for me.  it's okay to be jealous;)), we were talking about how strange it is that just five years ago we didn't even have a concept of Hunter and Charlotte, and now they're our everything.  They're a part of us.

This has been a really rough week for me - many frustrations with the job search.  And as we near the 1 year anniversary (if you want to call it that) of James being without a job, I think to myself, this isn't the life I would've pictured us living if you'd have asked me on our wedding day.  But the truth is, I wouldn't change anything about the last 5 years, even especially the last year. 

God is the same today as He was the day James and I were united in Him.  This is the plan He has for our family...just as James is the man He made for me.  A man who always keeps his promises.  A man I don't deserve.  So how could I question a God who gives me that?  I couldn't.  And I couldn't dream of asking Him for more.  I don't need anything more...
