Today is a very special day! Hero Hubs and I have been married for three delightful years! The day is likely to fly by with everything that’s going on right now, so we are planning to wait to celebrate once the busyness of this particular moment in time has passed us by…hopefully things will slow down a little in mid-July! But in the meantime I thought I’d wish Hero Hubby a Happy Anniversary right here, in the space where greeting cards are free and fully customizable. Well, as customizable as I have skill to customize anyway.

Dear Hero Hubs,

It’s not just a catchy nickname. You are an awesome man after the Lord’s own heart, a hero to me, and I am so blessed to be your wife! I will save the major mush for an actual card that the rest of the internet isn’t going to read, but I just thought I’d make sure you know you’re loved and celebrated right here, too!

Here’s to these three, and many more!

During this time we’ve lived on three continents: Africa, Europe and America, and we’ve visited three other countries together: Honduras, England and France!

We’ve physically moved all our stuff three times, have had three home addresses, at least three flat tires, and perhaps no more than three proper arguments. We’ve visited three game reserves, enjoyed three major sporting events (and at least three games where we cheered on the Pirates). We survived about three months of morning sickness (thank you for being so great!) and three major life decisions (your entry into ministry, stopping my PhD and our move to South Africa.)

We’ve had a blast scoring deals at Old Navy while back in the US on at least three separate and special occasions. I think you’ve consoled me while I cried at at least three hundred movies, and we’ve had three slightly scary visits to the hospital. I think we’ve broken down in the Ikea parking lot three times, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

So while we might not have the opportunity to fully celebrate the joy today, I just want to take a moment to celebrate it right here. Thanks for being the Hero Hubby that you are. Thanks for always reminding me that God’s got us right when I need to hear it. Thank you for living out Ecclesiastes 4 with me, and for picking me up so well.ร‚ย Thank you for selflessly making an amazing cup of coffee for me almost every morning for the past three years! I’d like to ask the Lord for another three hundred.

With Love,
Your CC

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labour. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. Furthermore, if two lie down together, they are warm, but how can one be warm alone? And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.
