On My 23rd Anniversary

nancy-anniversary-225x300A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,
and favor is better than silver or gold.
Proverbs 22:1

This Saturday marks my 23rd anniversary with Ben. Come Saturday, I will have been married for half of my life.

Eleven of those 23 years have been marked by Ben’s disability. Yet despite struggles and hardship, we have remained committed to one another. At times we’ve both faltered (and fallen) under the crushing weight of Ben’s brain damage. But we’ve made it 23 years! Ben is my best friend. He is my hero. He is the one who says, “I’m on your side,” when I am struggling. He is the one who daily lifts me up in prayer. I am so blessed to have been married to this man for half my life. I cannot imagine my life without him.

Happy Anniversary, Ben! I am so thankful to share this life with you.
