An Anniversary Story

Today is my 32nd wedding anniversary. I met him at a company picnic, he offered me his jacket when I got cold and the rest is history. I had never fell so hard before. I went home and told my mother, "I have met the man I am going to marry." She said it's about time! ....LOL (I was very choosy who I dated) Both my sisters had married early and my mother kidded me, that instead of making me a Hope Chest, it should be called a Struggle Box. Well, the joke's on them, my marriage lasted, theirs didn't, sadly. He is a wonderful man, kind, sensitive, handsome, hard worker, a great father and above all; my best friend. Our life together has been a great adventure. We traveled, made our home in over 10 different places, had two beautiful girls, and we still can't wait to see each other at the end of the day. I can remember my wedding day down to each little minute (I am sure all you ladies can) and the one defining moment that would tell me I had definitely found my Prince Charming was in the receiving line. My poor husband could not for the life of him, keep back the tears. Folks gave him tissues, hugged him and his men friends consoled him....LOL But later, all joking aside, he was to tell me why. He said, he couldn't believe he had found me and that he had got to marry me. Now, I am nothing extraordinary to be sure. Just a simple woman. But he made me feel, like the most prized person in the whole wide world. And for 32 years, he has continued to do so. He's definitely a keeper.

Dear KK ~ This had me in tears. I was reading out loud to DH and broke down.

Love is a wonderful gift. To find it and keep it is a real treasure.

Happy Anniversary to you and your dear DH from both of us.

Thank you so much! We had a lovely evening with dinner out and then chocolate cake in. Quiet and pleasant, full of nice memories of the past. And we continue to plan for our future.
Three cheers to love!

Three cheers to love is right! Each day is new, so there are lots more opportunities to live in love. This year will make our 41st year, and love just gets sweeter.

Have a great week Kit ~ FlowerLady
