Happy Anniversay

Thirty Six years ago today I married my best friend. We were two clueless kids about to embark on one wild adventure. The years have many happy memories. We raised two sons, watching them as adults is one of our greatest pleasures. One is married with three, soon to be four children, the other is getting ready to be a grad student this fall.

We have kind of grown up together, my husband and I, and there is not another person I would want to experience life with. This year has been one of our most challenging. We have had a death of a family member, cancer, failing health of both sets of parents, and other serious family issues.

God has been faithful in walking with us through the harder days. We both have a faith that is rooted in Christ alone. God has used the harder days to grow us spiritually and as a couple. Today we celebrate the love we have for each other. We will remember days past, the good ones and the not so good. We usually walk down memory lane on our anniversary.

We both have the day off, in addition to our anniversary, today is move in day for "sweet lady". We will spend the day helping her move. Tonight we will probably celebrate with dinner out. Happy anniversary to my sweet husband, my best friend.

Happy Anniversary...yes God is faithful through it all and staying married this long brings with it a load of testimonies. We celebrate 31 next week.

Oh, Happy Anniversary!! I'm sorry to be a day late. I love that picture by Mr. Potato Head. It makes me think of the part in "Toy Story" where Mr. Potato Head keeps hoping that the little boy will get a Mrs. Potato Head. Makes me giggle.
