Today Peter and I have been married for four years. It's gone by so fast. And I'm glad those 4 years are over! Mostly the part about being in medical school. It's nice now that we both have gainful employment! We're movin' on up.
In honor of the day, here are 4 reasons that I love Peter (though there are many more):
1) He did the dishes last night :o)
2) He puts up with a lot of ranting and raving from me and has never once called me insane. (Though he has probably thought it. It's nice that he doesn't say it out loud and instead patiently deals with my idiosyncrasies.)
3) He agreed to let me get cats and even lets them sleep on the pillow at night. And cleans out their litter box! This might seem like a silly reason. But he loves the cats because they make me happy and that's sweet.
4) He trusts God with his life and our futures. When we were in Africa and found out Peter didn't match for residency we both could have easily panicked. We had no idea what we would do and we had limited ability to contact people in the states. Peter especially could have given into disappointment and been anxious and resentful. But he was humble and chose to be patient and to strive for contentment in the midst of uncertainty. And God has blessed us abundantly through the job He provided.
Here's to many more years together! And a passel of kids and pets to come hopefully!
