This photo was taken moments after we said "I Do", 
which was incredibly almost eight-and-a-half years ago.
Our wedding wasn't over the top, but it was nice enough, and we both had a good time. 
We were just happy to finally be together. 
We had bought a house, and we were excited to start our new life as husband and wife.

Our life together hasn't always been easy. 
We've had a lot of rough times and a lot of heartache, 
but the good definitely outweighs the bad.
I couldn't imagine spending my life with anyone else.
This man is my rock.
He has seen me at my best, and he has seen me at my worst, 
and he has stayed beside me.
That alone speaks volumes. 

Most of the time,
it doesn't really matter what we do,
as long as we can be together.
That's why, when I found this a few months back,
I had to get it.
It hangs over our bed as a reminder of the promise we made to each
other before God, friends, and family.

I'm just an ordinary girl from an ordinary family. I married an ordinary man, we bought an ordinary house, we both have ordinary jobs, we have an ordinary son, and we live an ordinary life.

You get the picture.

However ordinary my life may be, God wants my life to be extraordinary, and if I lean on Him, there is no reason that it can't be.

You see, He has given me gifts and talents, and He expects me to use them for His glory. Do I always do this? The simple answer is no, and when I stop and think about it, I am ashamed. Sometimes I have a bad attitude and I complain about things rather than soaking in all the blessings that He has bestowed upon me.

I really need to just stop and reflect more on the wonderful things in my life, and I know if I do this, that I will realized all those ordinary things, they won't seem so ordinary anymore.
