Today is our ten-year wedding Anniversary. And today I surprised hubby with the news of this: We are expecting a baby! Our dear little one is due sometime around Valentine's Day next year... now isn't that appropriate?!
Every Wednesday night in church we have a prayer request / praises time. When everyone was done sharing, I raised my hand. Hubby was leading the services. I said that I was grateful for the ten years that God has given us and said that I would like to congratulate him and if no one was against it, I would like to give him his gift right then. Everyone lovingly agreed. So I walked to the platform with a little gift bag in my hand. He hugged and kissed me, then opened it and pulled out... a onesie! Imagine his surprise!
David later expressed how happy he was that I chose to tell him in this way, making our church people feel more a part of our personal lives. They are like family, so I could think of no better way to announce it to them as well.
It has been ten years since we said our vows, and I am even more happy now to be the bride of David Sloan than I was then. (And I was one ecstatic bride!) Ours has certainly been an adventurous journey, and I look forward to seeing all of the excitement that lies ahead for our family!
