Nine Years

 Nine years ago today,
I married my best friend
and 
we became a family.

This is our family today. 
I didn't gain a husband,
I gained more blessings than I ever could have imagined
those short nine years ago!

So not only is it a wedding anniversary...
it's a 
FAMILY 
Anniversary! 
I could not ask for more! 


And today, 
JWS,
this song still rings true. 

I set out on a narrow way, many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true

That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
Yes He did

I think about the years I spent, just passing through
I'd like to have the time I lost, and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You've been there, you understand
It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true

That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
