Happy 6th Anniversary, Dustin! Thank you for being an amazing, committed partner who challenges me to be and do my best, gives me the space to be myself at all times, and is my number one fan. Getting married to you is the best choice I have ever made. We have now known each other for over a decade, and what a decade it’s been!
To all of those out there, married or in committed relationships, here is a marriage blessing (from a card from Dustin’s cousin Desta):
May you have the courage to stand as yourself, alone and strong so that you may together understand the power of your union.
May you discover through your commitment to each other transforming energy and abiding peace.
May you open your hearts to each other so that together, you can share with others the fullness of your joy.
May you be filled with thanks and wonder, humor and fun, hope and perseverance so that you may grow in wisdom and grace.
And may you be blessed.
