I married a good man…

I wanted to take a minute to tell you about my husband.

Aaron is a good man.

He is a hard worker.

He is a great father.

He is very opinionated.

He has strong convictions.

He is loyal.

He is dedicated.

He is caring.

He desires to serve the Lord and strives to do so daily.

He loves to share Jesus with others.

He is blunt.

He is honest.

He makes sure my needs are met.

Except for my need for texting and a really cute pair of shoes (yes, they are needs)!

He would give you the shirt off his back.

He always rests in knowing God is sovereign.

He plays a mean harmonica.

He loves to spend time with the boys and I.

He jumps right in when he gets home.

He has taken over laundry responsibilities while I am recovering, and does a great job.

He leads our house well.

He sends me to the feet of our Lord when I need to be reminded that is where I need to be.

He is my biggest support.

He is the love of my life and I am so thankful for him.

I just thought you should know!:)

*Yes Aaron has faults too, but those you will have to discover on your own, cause I am not going to tell you.*

**When Aaron reads this he will simply say, “If there is anything good at all that you see in me, it is all from God”.**

So, today I thought I would take a minute to write about my wonderful hubby! Happy Father’s Day Aaron! You are a wonderful Daddy to Noah and Collin! Thank you so much for working so hard so I can stay at home with our handsome boys. There are so many things I could say about you to let people know how amazing you are, but I don’t know where to start.
I prayed specifically for a few things as a young girl regarding the man I would some day marry.
1 ~ That he would love God above all!
2 ~ That he would be an amazing father.
3 ~ That he would have a good financial head on his shoulder’s.
Well, you are even more than all that I prayed for. You are an amazing Daddy and I love you very much. Thank you for all you do! I am so thankful for you.
Always and Forever!!

Go fly a kite!!

On Noah’s actual birthday, Daddy got off work early!! We packed up the kids and headed to the park to fly kites! It was perfect weather for kite flying. It was slightly cool, but the wind was steady and strong. As soon as the kites were assembled, they shot right up in the air. Noah was great and remembered it from last year. Collin really surprised me by his ability to hold the string and he even tugged on it so it would not fall to the ground. It was a wonderful memory!!

Happy Anniversary!!!

What can I say about the man I love and have vowed to spend the rest of my life with. As many of you know Aaron can be a bit rough around the edges, but once you get past his honest displays of how he feels you will quickly see he is a wonderful man. I have never known love like we share. He truly wants what is best for me and always encourages me to seek God.
I remember the beginning of our relationship as if it happened yesterday. The deep connection I felt with him was overwhelming and amazing. My heart was overjoyed and I remember how my cheeks hurt from smiling all the time. At the time we met, Aaron was a swing manager at McDonald’s and worked the am shift. I worked from about 4pm- 11pm as a telemarketing supervisor (don’t hate me!) so obviously, we didn’t have very compatible schedules. I would call him when I got home from work and we would talk until his alarm went off at like 3am. He won me over quickly with his crazy impressions, poetry, singing and the vulnerability he allowed me to see. He opened his heart to me, I graciously received it and in return I opened my heart to him.
We had been dating for about 14 months when Aaron proposed on Aug 29, 1999 and we were married Oct 7, 2000. I remember our wedding day. I was so excited. I somehow talked my folks into buying my wedding dress for me 8 months before Aaron actually proposed, I guess I just knew he was “it” for me. Crazy, looking back! Anyway, I felt like a princess when I put that dress on and Aaron looked so handsome in his tux. He wore tails at my request and he was reduced to tears when I walked through the doors of the sanctuary. I will never forget the look on his face. Pure love.
About 3 months shy of our first anniversary my back went out for the first time. Aaron was scared, even though I didn’t know it at the time, but he was a rock for me. We didn’t experience the typical first year of adjustment like many newly married couples do. We loved the closeness and being able to wake up in each others arms. We were so happy. When my back went out we went through a trying time. We felt alone in our suffering and unprepared to take care of all that was being placed in our laps. Somehow God saw us through. He carried us through beautifully and we came out of that time stronger than before.
In June 2002 we purchased our first home. It was a great time in our life and we quickly added a Pug to the mix, Miss Roxi. Things were going well and we were flying high.
In 2004 things came to a screeching halt. In March we lost our first baby. We grieved together, but in completely different ways. I will never forget the look on his face when he came home from work early after I called him to tell him the devastating news. He walked into the house, fell to his knee’s and together we cried. It was a dark time in our lives, but it brought us closer by miles.
On March 9, 2005 we welcomed Noah Isaac into our family, 14 months later, May 22, 2006 Collin came along. The 2 new addition’s made our love increase a million fold and the way I looked at him forever changed. The title of FATHER agreed with him and my love deepened.
As you know the last year has been crazy for us concerning my health. Aaron has been amazing through this. He has cared for our children, redirected me to God, gotten up with me throughout the night, cooked, cleaned and all without one complaint. I wish you could all see how well Aaron has done throughout this difficult time. I am grateful the Lord has given me the most amazing partner in life. I have no idea where he gets all of the energy to work all day, come home, play with the boys and then put them to bed. I am constantly impressed by his desire to do what is right and how he sincerely desires to serve God above all. He is a man of integrity, honor and truth. I love him and thank the Lord for him!!
Happy Anniversary Baby! I love you!!

A tribute to the man of my dreams…

I am a few days late on my Father’s Day post, so here you go…
Aaron is a wonderful father to our boys! I have been impressed with him since day one with the way he has adapted and grown into an amazing father. The latest development in the relationship between this daddy and his boys has been bedtime – no girls allowed. Noah asks me to leave the room before Aaron tells the boys their bedtime story. No matter how tired or worn out Aaron is, he always does this! He always takes time tell the boys a story before bed. I am always impressed with how much he has to give the kids and I after a long day at work. He has never been the kind of guy that needs time to himself when he gets home and he is almost always sensitive to my need to talk to an adult. He always encourages me to reach out to other women and make meaningful connections and he has supported me from day one of our relationship, incedentially 10 years ago today we started dating.:)
Well, hats off to my wonderful hubby!!
I love you!
