3 years of wedded bliss

Three years ago we two became one

I love Joel for so many reasons that listing them cannot do them justice
But I'll try :)
He's the perfect fit for a companion, balancing me out with a personality and strengths complimentary to my own weaknesses and imperfections
Each day we laugh together, tease each other, and work out the root of what we are feeling and how that makes us behave
No one else in the world knows more about me or understands me as well as my husband
He is my best friend
I never knew I could love him more until we became parents on June 25th

I never dreamed I could love anyone as much as him until that day either
Every day I look at and kiss our sweet daughter I am reminded of God's miracle that created her out of us
Why did God bless me with this life? This man for a husband?

Before God controlled our relationship and was the center of it, I thought I couldn't live without him
Now I know I could survive without him (though I do not want to!) because God is bigger than me, bigger than Joel, and bigger than our marriage
God has rocked our world and our marriage since the birth of Mylin and has us on a steep path of learning, simplicity, and surrender
I am so thankful and blessed that He has put us together for this journey :)
