10,000 Day Anniversary

Happy 10,000th Day Anniversary to us!


















Man it is a milestone, sounds like a freakin' long time. Actually it is almost 27-1/2 years since we said "I Do" with dreamy visions of a life filled with "happily ever after"! And what a roller coaster ride, this marriage has been. There have been highs, and there have been lows. There have been tears, laughs, screams, rants & raves, moments of silence, giggles, smiles, looks of frustration, and looks of admiration. But through it all, we stuck by those vows we uttered in May of 1981.

Two kids and four grandkids later, we are still going strong. There are still days when this marriage stuff is very hard, but there are more days when it just feels right growing older (and hopefully wiser) with each other. We love each other and enjoy just being together. I can't imagine life without my partner in crime and thank God for allowing us to find each other. I thank God for giving us the strength and determination to not quit when all the odds were against us. I love you, Poppa and I am thankful that you love me!!!


And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor. 13:13
