Seven years. It feels like a long time but it also feels like time flew by so fast. We’ve had so many transitions I’m not sure every couple goes through in their first seven years, but the Lord has been faithful throughout the different seasons. Here’s seven years of us and God in a few words.
2013. Engaged. Married.
2014. Pregnant. From a rental, moved in to our home.
2015. Our firstborn, our first loss.
2016. Released my book. Pregnant.
2017. Noah. Transition to parenthood. Pao resigned.
God turns sorrow into joy.
2018. Pam moved to HR. Pao went back to work. Noah started daycare.
God stretches us for us to grow.
2019. I think this was the year of finally settling in after all the transitions the past years.
God gives rest.
2020. Work from home + no daycare or helper + pandemic = sanity in check. Then another loss. But also because of this season, we got to revive our many passion projects and sidelines (Pao’s YouTube channel, this blog, Our Little Fam Shop on Instagram and Facebook, and I’ll finally get to update my book on Amazon to include the final chapter.
God gives grace. His mercies are new every morning.
Obviously couldn’t be more grateful to God for giving me a lifetime partner who is very strong in the areas I am weak, unconditionally loving, and ever so patient. People said our wedding was so fun. It’s been seven years and our marriage and family has been a source of joy and so much laughter. 🙂 Happy anniversary to us, Pao! I love you!
