19 years

Today is our 19th wedding anniversary. I look back and think how young we were, and how old we thought we were. In all our dreams, I don't think we ever imagined ourselves living the life we have now. We never pictured ourselves as the mobile type, yet here we are in another new state (hopefully the last move before Air Force retirement)... trying to make new friends and find our niche in yet another new church family. We've survived deaths in our families (my grandmother, father, and brother; his grandmother) and experienced several births (our 4 children, 4 nieces/nephews, and 6 great-nieces/nephews). We've said "Hello" and "Goodbye" more times than we care to remember. But one thing has remained constant, and that is us.

Thank you Brian, for 19 years of love. It has been my rock in this world, my anchor when everything else around me is unfamiliar and changing. Here's to another 19 and more.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!

I never would have thought y'all old enough to be married that long. But then, we don't look old enough to be creeping up on 24... ;)

Wow, nineteen years...you must have been a child bride.

Wishing you many many more years of happiness together.

A child bride??? If you call 22 a child. Well, come to think of it, these days I do call people that young "kids." :O)

Well, I should check in more often... would have told you Happy Anniversary last night at church. I guess Belated Wishes are better than none, eh? I'm excited that you, Brian and the kids are going to be part of our church family. I'm looking forward to seeing just how God will weave us all together in His tapestry. Blessings!!
