I'm still MIA, but wanted to drop in and say hi.
Today is a very special day.
45 years ago today, at 4:00 p.m. Central Time, I married my best friend, the love of my life,
and my partner in business, parenting, and everything in between.
Together, hand in hand, we have been through births, deaths, illness, good times,
and not-so-good times. In 1980, when dear hubby sustained 1st, 2nd, and 3rd degree burns
over more than 3/4 of his body, I thought I'd lose him, and I was terrified. Thanks to God,
a very strong and stubborn husband, successful skin grafts, and a wonderful burn unit, we were blessed to weather that storm together.
We've watched our babies grow up into successful adults, and are proud of the goodness
and love of family in each of them. They have both married wonderful spouses, and have blessed us with 4 beautiful grandchildren. It's fun to watch their love grow with each passing year.
Life is so good!
I thought I'd share with you our 'then and now' photos, so you can see what a difference
45 years makes!
Stan, if you happen to read this blog post, I hope that you know how much you mean to me.
Each year, our love grows, changes, and each year just gets better and better. Let's see what the next 45 years bring! Happy Anniversary - I love you!
Thanks, everyone, for putting up with this sappy post! Sometimes, you just gotta go with what your heart tells you, right??? I have to laugh - we had the latest photo taken for our church directory. I forgot to wear earrings AND neglected to put on any make-up. Old age is my excuse for said forgetfulness!
Happy Saturday to all,
