Today is a very special day! Mark and I are celebrating our 6-year anniversary!
I'm a bit in the doghouse this year! I totally forgot about our anniversary until yesterday!! I've been confined to the house with Victoria until her heart surgery, so unless I'm going to a doctor appointment or have my mom or Mark's parents come over (or Mark cover for me) so I can run to the store, there is no outside world for me. Also, since Victoria does not nurse well right now, I'm constantly pumping and cannot spend a lot of time away from my pump to shop, run errands, etc.
Mark is SO NOT in the doghouse this year!!! He remembered our anniversary and even surprised me with a sweet card and gift yesterday!! Talk about a good husband!
So, I decided to write a lot of nice things in my blog today about him, hoping he would forgive me for being so absent-minded this year! I guess we have had a lot going on the past month and my brain has been a bit scattered.
On the serious side, Mark has been such a wonderful support to me through such a hard time lately. He lets me vent and cry when I need to and he has cried with me. He loves little Victoria and his other two rays of sunshine, Elyssa and Natalie. I could not ask for a better husband or father to our children. He is a wonderful man of God and such a great provider to our family in many ways. I love how he loves my family and is so accepting of them and I love how he loves his family and always wants to make sure his parents know that we are so thankful for them.
So, today, I say a special and heart-felt "thank you" to the Lord for putting such a wonderful man in my life!
Mark Douglas Messick ... I love you! Happy Anniversary!
