20 Years


Last November 5th my husband and I marked 20 years of marriage. But between my brother in law passing and the birth of our new son, it just sort of passed by... other than a quick "Happy Anniversary" to one another that morning we just didn't have the chance to do much else... In fact, that morning we were rushing around trying to get everyone dressed and ready to go to my brother in laws funeral. I commented to my husband that 20 years ago that day we were getting ready to head to the Church for a whole different reason...

So, I think it's WAY PASSED time to acknowledge this milestone that we accomplished, only through God's grace...

After 20 years it becomes all too easy to forget about what it was that drew us together in the first place... Lives become wrapped up in job, kids, chores, life... But I want you to know how very much you mean to me... you are MORE than just a provider for our home... you are my partner in life, in love, my anchor that I cling to when I am afraid... You are the father of our children that fill our lives with laughter, and tears, and remind us of our endless amounts of love for them and for one another because they are part of each of us. Sometimes you frustrate me to no end, but you make me smile more...
We've done it... We've come this far... there were those who didn't think we would... But here we are... It makes me sad to think of life without you, so I won't... We have been so blessed over the years... I pray that we continue to cling to our Faith in God and to each other, for richer, for poorer, in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health... till death do us part. I love you now and always... Happy belated Anniversary, my love!
