The Happiest Day of My Life

Five years ago today, I was sitting in a hotel room in Chama, NM. Our Pastor had just entered the room to see if I was ready. After a giggly, “Oh, yes!” I practically ran down the hall, anxious to get to the door. Hand in hand with my parents, I stepped outside into the beautiful NM wilderness, my favorite song (Canon in D) was playing, family and friends were all around me and at the front of it all stood the incredible man I was about to marry.

I remember thinking to myself: “This is the happiest day of my life!”

And up to that point, it surely was. However, today was also the happiest day of my life. And yesterday too.  Come to think of it, every single day since then has also been the happiest day of my life. You see, every day, I have the day before, and the memories and experiences that go along with it, to make that new day just a little better.

After 5 years, that’s a whole lot of happy. We have been truly blessed in our marriage and we are so thankful for everything that the Lord has allowed us to do through our marriage. Being on this trip has taught us so much about the teamwork required for a marriage and we have loved having so much time together and to share these experiences together.

Now, of course, not every day is roses and cake and champagne. But, even on a day lacking the excitement of a wedding, heck, even on a bad day, I know that our love is growing deeper, and that, to me, is sheer and utter happiness.

Here’s to many more Happiest Days Aaron!
