September was a busy month for us. Besides it being a month to harvest our garden, can, freeze etc we had our wedding annivesary and my birthday.
This year we celebrated our 7th year of being married. In Hebrew, seven ([b'v, - Sheh-bah) is from the root word meaning to be complete or full. I really do feel full with the richness of being blessed with such a kind, gentle and loving man. The path has not always been easy, there have been seasons of hurt and disappointments however the joy and love we share trumps the sorrow any day.
We really didn't know what we were going to do for this anniversary due to my limitations. The day before I gave Rick some goodies for the Fun Run he entered, I loved that he was surprised. That evening we opted for a quaint and quick dinner at The Brick Oven Bistro, a stop at REI, and home. Once home we said good bye to the sitter, we put Emily to bed and watched a movie. It was pretty low key. On our anniversary we went to church and afterwards Rick and Emily surprised me with some special treats too. And while we didn't do anything extravagent I am content. I am blessed to have a great husband and a family that loves me.
Love to each of you...
