There are several things that just seem to “click” from time to time. I am sure you could agree.
Like putting on new run or workout gear and feeling motivated. It just clicks in!
Like putting dark chocolate almond butter in Strawberry Raspberry Hot Oats from LoveGrown Foods. It’s a clicking combo!
Like making a strange but good recipe with the bare essentials left in your pantry. Goat Cheese, Carrot, and Olive Tuna Cakes. Yes, somehow this just clicked and I will be posting the recipe.
Like opening up your devotional and having God’s word just “click” with your heart and soul.
Like having neighbors who you just Click with and feed you well ALL the TIME. Yes, we’re spoiled!
Like clicking with your waitress right away because she has good taste in wine and appetizers. Plus she doesn’t rush you through dinner when it’s a special occasion.

But Marriage… well… that took 5 years to click. Five years worth working on too!
It took 5 years of seeing each other at our lowest of lows and highest of highs, yet never leaving each others side.
It took 5 years of trying to change each other only to realize we can’t, we won’t, and we really don’t want to.
It took 5 years of trying to figure out how to make “our” plans mesh when really we needed to let go and LET GOD’s PLAN lead us.
It took 5 years for me to figure out that I can’t always fix a problem and sometimes the best way to help my husband is just to pray for him (us).
It took 5 years for me realize that needing to control everything only leads us nowhere! In fact, it backfires.
It took 5 years for us to realize that there is no such thing as a perfect husband, a perfect wife, or a perfect marriage. But we are PERFECT for each other.
It took 5 years to realize that Love and Respect are KEY ingredients in marriage. And when you wake up wanting to make that person’s day a little better, then you’ve found your purpose.
It took 5 years to realize that marriage isn’t about the happily ever after, it’s about STAYING TOGETHER…….ALWAYS!
picture on the left is us 6 years ago, newly engaged. Picture on the right is us last night, celebrating 5 GROWTH years of marriage. Yes, we tried to reenact it. ha!
We have many many more years of “growth” to experience, but there is no one else I’d rather grow with than my husband.
Cheers to 50 more years!
