Happy Anniversary !!!

16 years ago today I married my best friend and it has been quite a ride so far.

~ June 19, 1993 ~

We have had our ups and downs like most married couples but have managed to work as a team to maintain a strong and loving relationship with each other.  It's actually hard to believe that it has been 16 years.

The last six have flown by with the arrival of Hayden and Laila.  I truly believe that if a marriage can survive raising kids it's probably a keeper for life.  

Faruq is a kind soft spoken man with qualities that I hope that both my kids have inherited.  He is a wonderful provider for his family and truly loves to spend time with us.  He rarely ever says "no" to anything I suggest (and I have had some real dousies).  He shows patience with our kids even after he has had a long stressful day at work.

He really hasn't changed much after all these years although he is thinner around both the waist and hairline.  I can't wait to spend the next 16 years with you !!

Thank you for being you and loving me !!!

I love you Faruq !!
