The Coleman Dozen

Twelve years with Mr. Coleman. If only we knew what we were getting into. Two of the world's most stubborn spirits and look what love has taught us: patience, forgiveness, hope, tenderness—for each other and ourselves. There is no one else I'd rather take that journey with.

The power of love to heal our hurts and hearts is very real. Thank you, Mr. Coleman for loving me the last dozen or so years. You have given me a gift that I am not sure I can repay. I love you.

To include all my dear readers in the celebration, please enjoy my current favorite love song:

  1. 12 years? Wow. That picture is really sweet, as are your words and that song (also a favorite of mine).

    Happy Anniversary.

  2. Happy Dozen! I love the picture!

  3. Happy 12 ya fabulous couple! What a thoughtful post and fantastic picture. We have a grove by us, makes me wanna go get a picture like that.

  4. Aww, how cute. But with the title, I thought you were going to say you were having six more kids, so you'd have a family of 12. JK.

    Like I told Angela, don't rat me out for blogging when my room isn't clean. ;)

  5. O.M.Gsh - What a cute picture! Happy Anniversary =)
