Happy Anniversary Honey!

Today marks 9 years that Lugnut and I have been husband and wife, and I couldn't feel more blessed. He's traveling today, so we can't spend this momentous occasion together, but he has made it special, just the same.

I woke up this morning with a thoughtful message on my phone from him. I also came across a beautiful card that he had Sissy hide in my purse. He's left little breadcrumbs all around me to let me know that he's thinking of me today, and that he loves me very much.

As I reflect today on the past 9 years, I feel blessed to find more happy memories than sad ones, more good days than bad. Has it been easy? No. Has it always been full of fun and laughter? Definitely not. Has it been worth it? Absolutely, positively YES! Looking back, I find all sorts of breadcrumbs he's left for me, reminding me how much he loves and supports me. A kind word when I'm down; a silent hug when I feel defeated; a kiss goodbye in the morning before we head to work. All small reminders that I'm never far from his mind and always in his heart.

I truly believe that God sent Lugnut to me, as a breadcrumb of sorts. God knew what I needed then, and he knows what I need now. My husband is just one of a million breadcrumbs God has left for me, reminding me just how much he loves me: my children, a beautiful sunset, a rainbow after a storm. I cherish these breadcrumbs dearly, and do my best to not miss a single one.

To my dear husband: Happy Anniversary Honey! I love you will all my heart!

To the rest of you: What are your breadcrumbs?
