14 Years Later

Our family at present. Today is a pink day. 😀

The 11th day of the month is very significant for us. Hubby and I met in early 1999 and eventually became a couple on November 11, 1999. So today is our 168th monthsary and we had been in a relationship for 14 years now. teehee

Our dating years had been tough to say the least, as God molded us to become the persons that He wanted us to become. It took more than seven years until we finally settled down in 2007.

We had our first daughter, Dindin, on March 11, 2009 and our second daughter, Shane, on August 11, 2013. So today, it is our 186th monthsary, it is Dindin’s 4th year and 8th month, and Shane’s 3rd month. 😀 Hence the pictorial.

This is our family now. It is amazing to think somehow how we have grown in age and experience over the years. We had highs, lows, jubilation as well as regrets. The only safe thing to say is, the Lord is gracious, which is the reason why the names of our two daughters, Shawna and Shane, mean just that.

Thank you, Lord, for our young family. We still have a long way to go in raising our children and we only trust in You to guide us, protect us, and provide for all our needs. Thank you so much for how You have seen us through the years. We may not be materially wealthy, but you provide us with enough to get by, good health, and lots of laughter. To You be glory, honor, and praise…forever. 😀
