Today is the Twenty Fourth of November

Today is the twenty-fourth of November. 
Today is a special day. Today we celebrate 3 major milestones. 

Today is our 3rd Anniversary. On this day three years ago I married my best friend and first love in a very intimate and quiet ceremony. A promise that we will do life together, both the good and the bad. A reminder that in the midsts of bittersweet moments and the ups and downs of life we'll always remember to love, support and encourage each other. No matter how hard it gets and how ugly things are we will continue to put our best into this relationship and to always put each other first. A promise that no matter who walks in or out of our lives, we will never walk away from each other. It's been a wonderful three year journey and today we celebrate our third anniversary with our little one, the result of our love. The first of many more to come *wink* and today we celebrate our first "noisy" Anniversary. 

Today is Montycat's 4th Birthday. The one who has brought us so much joy and light in our darkest of times. When things seem bleak and our love is on thin ice, he breaks through for us. He's a reminder that we are all in this together. A reminder of a family. A symbol of commitment and promise. More than a household pet, he's our cat-son. He's our boy, our first child, the third Lim. 

Today BabyLim turns 10 months. 10 beautiful months of parenthood for Hubbycat and I. 10 months of learning how to be the best parents and realising that we will never stop learning. 10 months of watching BabyLim develop and grow into her own person. 10 months of purposefully putting each other first before BabyLim so that we can be the best for BabyLim. Today also means that 10 months has gone and that time moves swiftly. That BabyLim is growing up each day therefore we have to make every day count. That there are no second chances or do-overs. A reminder that no matter how hard or bleak things look, "it will pass" and "things will get better". 

Today I look back and feel blessed to have an amazing life partner and a beautiful family as a result of our love. Today I thank God for everything He has given me and for every day I get to wake up and have all of this. I am thankful for the promise He has made me and that He has never let me down once. No matter how difficult some days were He still protected me and my heart. I am forever thankful.
