Anniversary Day

58 years ago today, my uncle and auntie married.  53 years ago, my own parents tied the knot.  Another set of cousins are married 54 years today; as well!  39 years ago, my Grandpa married my Grandma Gladys and 36 years ago, my sweet cousins were hitched.  11 years ago, I married my best friend; joining the family tradition. 
It is to those who have gone before me and shown me that through thick and thin, marriages can and do last.  My favorite line of this song, "Don't let your praying knees get lazy and love like crazy!" 

I am so glad we got married on June 12th.  Really, though, I am just glad I married my dear husband.  It wouldn't matter what day I was wed if it was to the wrong man.  So, win-win for me!

I told him today, "I can't promise that I will be here for the rest of your life.  I can promise you that I will love you for the rest of mine."

I am blessed to have a legacy of Godly marriages.  All of my aunts and uncles have been married to their one and only spouse, showing me each day that choices are made and as long as we keep God between us, nothing can separate us. 

Happy Anniversary, honey.  Thanks for putting up with me and spoiling me like you do.  I love you!
Happy Anniversary Daddy & Moma - thanks for your example every day!
Happy Anniversary Uncle G and Aunt K - You prove that young love does last a lifetime.
Happy Anniversary cousins!  You continue to be a Godly couple for me to see!
