Could a girl ask for anything more from her husband? Not only does he work so hard juggling the house, the girls, his own business, laundry, school schedules, getting up earlier so that I don't have to take the kids to school before racing off to work, cooking, travelling and fixing blown fuses, but he encourages me to work hard at my career, gives me time at home to create things for the girls and only occassionally rolls his eyes at my fabric collection. Then he makes me a handmade, from the heart gift, to celebrate our marriage. It is a blessing to have made it this far. Some days I know both of us would have walked away, but what we have now is a testament to the fact that we stayed, we worked it out, we decided to choose love. He is an amazing example to me every day of selflessness, of love in action. I hope that our girls see their Daddy as the kind of man they want to marry. They can't go wrong with that as their goal.

Tomorrow, Tim and I celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary. This is the collage he made me to celebrate. The canvas includes wonderful photos of my family, some of the things I have made this year, and Proverbs 31. It is one of the most amazing presents ever.
