{Thankful} Photo Friday

So instead of doing a post everyday of something I am Thankful for in November, I've decided to do a Thankful Photo I'm going to post something I am thankful for every Friday in November for my Photo Friday. 

This week I am thankful for Marriage. 

I have been thinking a lot about marriage and what a marriage means lately, especially with the upcoming elections and voting... and living in Washington State meaning Ref. 74. And I am beyond grateful for my beautiful marriage to Shad. I am thankful that we were married in the temple, and I am so grateful for the covenants and promises we made to each other there. I am grateful for him and the husband and father he is. I am thankful that I belong completely to him and he belongs completely to me. I am grateful that we waited for each other, and waited until marriage. I am grateful that we chose the appropriate time and place to get married. I am thankful that I am married for eternity and not just in this life. I am thankful for the family our marriage has led to, not just our BEAUTIFUL perfect little boys. But the family I've gained through marriage. I started out as an only child, and now I have 7 brothers and sisters... and 19 amazing nieces and nephews! What a blessing. I am very thankful for these past 6 years of marriage, and many, many, many more to come.

You're absolutely right! A beautiful marriage is the greatest blessing.

Way back when I was your Laurel advisor, it was my greatest wish that you would find such a guy as Shad and have a temple marriage. I'm so happy for you.

I am so grateful for you too Krista! You are a wonderful wife for Shad and I am grateful you love each other so completely! You are a wonderful and sweet Mom to those two precious boys, too! I wish I was not so busy so I could get on more and give comments when you first post. This is my first real day off for a bit which is why you are getting them all today!
