10 Years Tomorrow!

Tomorrow will be 10 years of marriage for my wife and I. We have a nice little get away planned for this weekend to celebrate. In the meantime, what would our anniversary be without the annual posting of “Twas the Night Before Our Anniversary”? To my wife, I can’t thank you enough for putting up with me the past 10 years and STILL thinking I could “rope the moon”. I love you.

Twas the Night Before Our Anniversary…
Twas the Night before our Anniversary and all through the house
The children were all sleeping and so was my spouse
The family pictures all sat on the mantle with care
With hopes that no dust would soon settle there

It was a late hour and I was not in my bed
As visions of Blog posts danced in my head
Mom in her PJ’s and I in my Carolina Cap
Was thinking all day, how I could sure use a nap

When from the bathroom upstairs arose such a clatter
Then I realized it was just “the boy”, emptying his bladder.
He went back to bed and no one else awoke,
I was off to the kitchen for a cold Diet Coke

Then I thought “to the cupboard is where I must go”
For 2 Tylenol to relieve my back ache you know
When what to my sleepy eyes should appear
The reminder that our anniversary is near

The memories have come and gone so quick
Where does the time go? It must be some trick
It seems like just yesterday we played the “dating game”
Now we have 3 children that share our name.

Now Austin, now Emma
Now Brynn you count too
From marriage to parenting
The things we’ll go through
From the house to the park
Both diapers big and small
We are raising 3 kids together
And hanging their pictures on our wall

The girl of my dreams, better than everyone else
How did I get so lucky, I thought to myself.
With a wink of her eye and a twist of her head
The past was gone and our future lies ahead

The past 10 years we have learned so much
Who knew that we’d be married with children and such
But we made it this far, with all of our might
So Happy anniversary my wife, and to all a good night!

  1. That’s so awesome! I have to admit that this actually brought tears to my eyes – tears of joy for a marriage that is obviously so awesome! In this day and age that seems to be rare so it’s exciting to see!! Happy anniversary to you both and I hope you have a great get away!!

  2. My dear hubbie… you give me too much credit. Thanks for asking me that question eleven years ago. Thanks for showing me all that love can be. When you sang, “Forever’s As Far as I’ll Go”, you’ve fulfilled that and more. Love you

  3. All – Thanks for the comments and well wishes. Mercyme said it better than I could ever try to…

    “I am just a man who understands because of you I’m blessed. Nothing more and nothing less”.

    I am thankful for the blessing of my wife.
