Today we celebrate our 15th Wedding Anniversary. Grandma will be picking up the kids this afternoon so hubby and I can have an evening out. And we plan to enjoy every minute of it!
It seems like so long ago when we were just a couple of kids who met at Christian college. Hubby had spent several years in the Navy before going to college, so we started at the same time. I remember how we planned to have a houseful of kids, and all the other plans you make when you're young and have the world before you.
Of course, you don't always realize at that point that life can throw some unexpected things at you, more so than you can imagine.
I'm not going to say that we've never had disagreements. We definitely have; and I was always right! LoL
Unfortunately, I was probably wrong more times than he was;)
The silver lining (so to speak) of those ups and downs and rough times, is that it bonds you so strongly to each other. And, without a doubt, our strong faith in God and our desire to raise our children for Him, has been the greatest influence of all.
For better, for worse. For richer, for poorer. In sickness, as in health.... I think those are beautiful words. They speak commitment, unselfishness, faithfulness. Qualities that are so under-rated in our present day.
So to the man who has stuck by my side, through thick and through thin, and loves me in spite of my many flaws:
I love you with all my heart. Happy Anniversary Sweetheart. 15 years and counting...
