I still do



Tomorrow will be a decade. 10 years spent together. We have been through

*moves
*deployments
*4 labors
*school
*lean financial times
*hurricanes
*relocations
*deaths in the family
*church callings
*firsts with the children
*sadness
*happiness
*laughter
*tears
*3 kids in diapers, 2 using bottles, at the same time
*late nights
*early mornings
I am sad that I can't be with Ben on our anniversary, but I just want him, and everyone else to know, that if I had the chance to do it again...I would. Without hesitation. I wouldn't change a thing. And after all this time...yeah babe, I do. I still do.

Happy Anniversary. I can't imagine what you're feeling not being with Ben right now. I'm sorry. Thanks for being a great example.

Happy Anniversary! With all the chaos over here, I haven't been very good with sending out cards or anything, but I have been thinking about you :)

being a navy wife of about sixteen years I think we have been away from each other on anniversaries about half or maybe even more. The good thing is that day is just a reminder not the true love you have for your husband.

Congratulations Marie. I spent my 10th anniversary alone last year, so I truly can sympathize. So sorry! Hopefully you'll get to make it up when Ben comes home.

Happy Anniversary!! Sorry you have to spend it apart! I think these things are trumped up anyway, the last three years we have missed celebrating our anniversary together, twice he has been gone on business and then this year I had my surgery. Not the romantic adventures we palnned as little girls right? Have a great day nonetheless! By the way, how many days till Hawaii??
