My Bride....

This is Mr. Nato, husband to the lovely Jami Beatrice Nato. Today is our anniversary, our 5th. I'll tell you (as would my bride) that it's been a long 5yrs. A lot of hard times as well as good. If you've followed our family blog you know what I'm talking about, if not, I would encourage you to search the blog a little and learn how Christ has saved our marriage, our family and my life everyday.


I love you.  And I'm so thankful for you.
I'm thankful that I get to rub your feet every night.
I'm thankful that I get to go to sleep in the same bed with you every night.
I'm thankful that I get to wake up to you and your magical breath every morning.
I'm thankful that our beautiful children have an amazing strong woman as their mother.  
I'm thankful that I have you to call me out.  
I'm thankful that I don't live in an apartment by myself, lost. 
I'm thankful that i get to come home to you and the kids everyday after work. 
I'm thankful that we argue and get to make-up.  
I'm thankful that I get to spend the rest of my life with you.  
I'm thankful that Christ loves me so much and cares for me that he chose to rip me out of my sin, so that I could be with you today. 

It's been a long 5 year and there are not enough words for me to say or express how truly sorry I am for all the stupid things I've done,  but I am so thankful to be here now today, growing in the gospel, with you by my sideYou make me a better man and more importantly, you make me want and desire to be a better man of God.  I love you more today than the day I married ya.

Happy Anniversary, I love ya, I love ya, I love ya.  Now lets grow old and get all wrinkly together.  You're my baby and you always will be.


p.s. this is jami! there is a giveaway i'm involved in over at lens and needle. check it out.
