Don't get me wrong. We have our moments of miscommunication and hurt feelings....but you get that with best friends too. And those moments have strengthened us...making us learn more about each other and how the other thinks and how we could be more clear in expressing our wants and needs.
I think it has really helped our marriage that we were friends first and love blossomed out of that. We went this weekend to Old St. Augustine and just walked around hand in hand in the beautiful sunshine like we used to do when we were just friends(minus the hand holding then). It was so peaceful we both wanted to fall asleep on the ride home (Josh was driving so he couldn't).
I guess everyone has their fears about marriage and turning into that nagging or domineering partner...but I am happy to report that we are still best friends and I love him more and more everyday...for the man he is striving to be for God...for the friend he is to me....for the leader i can trust....i love him and look forward to many more years of serving God together side by side...loving the beautiful life we have been given and enjoying the adventurous ride!
