Nine Years and Counting

Nine years ago today I was privileged to make covenants with the greatest woman I have ever known. I spent a lot of time today thinking back to our wedding day (hint: that was back when Mother Nature still remembered that it’s not supposed to snow in May) and all that has happened in the years since then. We have been blessed with five kids and I get to contrast my nine years of marriage with the ten months and counting that a friend of ours is enduring of divorce proceedings. While we were at stake conference today being spiritually edified I saw the weight of care showing on this friend’s face and thought how blessed I was to have a wonderful wife to share the weight of raising children to the Lord so that they will be prepared for the challenges they will face when they go out into the world.
