I can't believe it has been 13 years! Javi was 20 and I was 19. He worked days and nights at a grocery and drug store- sometimes as many as 80 hours a week while I finished up college by age 20. What were we thinking? We were crazy in love and learned how to live on a super tight budget - something we are thankful for now. I know the Lord taught us so much through that. Because of having to live on little, mature together and having to wait for God to provide for everything, it grew our faith in Him. We are so thankful for 13 years of marriage and 8 children. As one elderly lady at our Spanish church told us, "All those kids are the fruit of your love" :) - too funny we still laugh about that comment. Te amo Javi!
