Your Mrs.

Twelve and a half years. I've known my husband longer than I've not known him. And today we celebrate his birth.

I am so blessed. So many memories with you, my love. So many adventures together. I love that we get to have each other, and hold each other, every day. That every day, going forward, I can count on you as my constant friend. You blow me away with your faithfulness. You win my heart more and more with your love. I'm so thankful that we do life with community--with God, our family, and our friends. And I promise you, Peter Webb, to love you faithfully every day of our lives. We've had our adventures in sickness--some more unpleasant than others--and our adventures in full, joyful health. We've had fantastic good times together--trips together, jokes together, television shows and movies, pulling off so many events, parties, relaxing evenings at home together alone. And we've dealt with our own bad times, struggles, problems, and fears. We share the highest of joys together, and we are by each other's side to weather the sorrows, too.

Peter Webb, on your birthday, I want you to know I mean my vows.  I promise to love you unconditionally, when you're in a good mood and when you're not, when you are strong and when you don't feel so strong, when you are kind to me, when you aren't, when you're forgetful or distracted, when you're passionate, when you're inspired--no matter what, I love you.

I promise to support you in your goals, to do everything I can to cheer you on, to help you win at life. I will be by your side, physically whenever I can, but always in spirit. If anyone can make your crazy big dreams a reality, it's you, empowered by Jesus. I can't wait to see what goals you achieve in this next year, and the years to come.

I promise to honor and respect you. You are my man, you are the head of my family, and I will respect you unconditionally. You have what it takes. You are so full of wisdom. I am honored to be your wife and I want to be a treasure and a joy for you, to be your "good thing" every day.

I promise to laugh with you--thank you for making me laugh so easily! Your humor makes my life a joy, and I think I've laughed happily because of you every day since we've been married. I am unbelievably blessed to have my own personal stellar comedian as my HUSBAND! How cool is that?! And baby, I promise to cry with you. I pray those times are few and far between, but when sorrow comes, I'll be there--you don't have to face it alone.

I promise to cherish you, treasure you, value you, admire you, until the day I die.

And Peter Webb, I promise these things to you for as long as we both shall live--each day, I will be your wife, I'll love you passionately, fully, wholeheartedly, as we run this race, each day into the future, each minute older together, until Jesus takes us home.

Thank you for letting me be your Mrs. Webb.
