Friday is my fifth wedding anniversary.
I have been so apprehensive about this day; it's the first major milestone day since our separation. What sort of emotions would I feel? Would I be depressed? Angry? Filled with hopelessness?
Right now, at this very minute, I'm glad.
I'm thankful that I got to spend so many years married to a great partner. I'm happy that our marriage produced Jonas and Noah, our favorite short people. I'm proud that we interact with kindness and respect. And I'm hopeful that today will always be a special day for us, because it's when we started our family, even though we are more than slightly non-traditional at this point.
So happy anniversary to us. While I never thought we'd spend it like we are, I'm thankful for it. We will always be family because of the boys.
And that's a great thing.
