6 Years!!

6 years ago today, my fiancé and I stumbled into the adventure of a lifetime, fully convinced we knew what to expect. What a journey it’s been!

In our 6 years of marriage, we’ve learned so much about each other, and about ourselves. It’s been a wonderful roller-coaster with massive highs and incredible lows: from health crises, to having quite literally zero money to our name, to soaring highs, successes and wins of every kind.

I’ve loved every second of sharing my life with Auds - watching her grow, and rise, and fulfill lifelong dreams has been an honour to be a part of.

Marriage is such a fascinating relationship, because you have someone so close, that you want to be so close to, that you see yourself clearly for the first time. You suddenly see your flaws, and your strengths. This other person reveals your real self. Some days you’ll like what you discover, other days not! 

We’ve been on the journey of marriage for 6 years now, and it’s been 9 years since we began dating, and i really honestly wouldn’t change a single day. Every difficult part has shaped us and formed us into who we are, so I can’t begrudge a single thing.

It’s been awesome to struggle and strive with God over our time as well - we’ve grappled with very real things in our lives together - and it’s forced us to make real choices about who we believe God is, and what kind of person He is. It’s been a difficult journey at times, but the one thing i can always say is that He’s never let us down, for a single day. We live in His grace and His Love every day, and I could not bare the thought of living any other way.

So today, Happy 6th Anniversary, my love, and thank you for being YOU! I look forward to spending every year of my life with you!

29 today!

My wife turns 29 today! I’m so excited for you, my wife!

I’ve watched you grapple with the hardest stuff in the world - life has thrown you more than your fair share of curve balls. I’ve watched as you’ve taken the waves of life on board, and I’ve watched you see your dreams on the horizon, and set your face towards them like a flint.

It excites me so much to watch what you’ve achieved - what we’ve achieved together - but mainly what you’ve done! Your dream of competitive show jumping is within reach. Your goal of starting horseriding long ago achieved - something I know you never thought you’d be able to do. And the goal of owning your own horse - stuff in the realm of madness and fiction in your mind - has happened. You’ve done it my love!! Well done, you deserve it all!

I’ve also watched you grow as a person, blossoming and maturing and evolving like a miracle. I’ve watched with such excitement to see you in your journeys of self discovery, of dealing with your past, and moving into your future. It blows my mind - and we both know it comes from being close to God when the magic happens - so stick with him, trust him, and he’ll look after you.

Knowing that my own life is not likely to be the average full length - that everyone else can to a certain extent rely on - gives me clarity; it gives me focus, and it prioritizes life. It makes it very clear to me who I want to be around. And having you in my life is exhilarating! You add so much colour, excitement, and variety to my life it sometimes makes my head spin! :-) I can’t wait to hear the next crazy idea you’ve dreamed up.

So today, as you step into the final year of your 20’s, I wish you the happiest birthday that you’ve had so far. I love you, my wife, always and forever, a hundred gabillion.

Happy birthday, Mrs Audrey Glover!
