…it was confirmed to me that our Heavenly Father blesses us way beyond the capabilities of our small imaginations. Maybe not right when and how we want but always much better than we thought. I remember, especially during our engagement, being overcome with gratitude on a daily basis that I was going to have the privilege of being Stephen’s wife. I knew I had scored in a big way. Never had I imagined someone so kind, so generous, so optimistic and so happy to be living this wonderful life. He was good, righteous and sincere and made no apologies for that. I knew he would do nothing but love and care for me with loyalty, humility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor perfectly matched to mine. I knew he would be a patient father slow to temper and quick to be involved – to show love and to work as a team. I knew a life with him would be fun, happy and full of righteous pursuits. My expectations have been far exceeded. I truly am humbled to get to call him my husband.

Happy Anniversary, Stephen!

Ever since Stephen was a little boy I have always been impressed with how easy going he is. As he got older I realized there was even more to be impressed with... his kindness and intelligence and desire to do what's right (among other things). I have always thought he would make a wonderful husband and father and that whoever he married would be very lucky indeed. I'm glad you agree. And I'm so glad he got you! :) Happy Anniversary!

Stephen is one of my dearest friends and cousins. I think the world of him and am so glad he has someone who appreciates his wonderful qualities! He really is so kind & pleasant -- and yet has so much depth & earnestness: a great combination!

Congratulations on 3 years!
