Today is our 19th wedding anniversary! The photo was taken just before we left the reception. We've been talking a lot lately about what we knew, what we thought we knew and what we had no clue about back then (or today!).
We both realize now that we had no idea what it took to make a marriage work, what it meant to be married, and what it meant to be a half of a whole.
There have some great times. There have been struggles. And as I write those words, it is evident that they don't begin to cover the depth nor the breadth of the experiences we've shared.
During my father's recent illness, my mother commented to me that "You got a good one."
Yep, I did. I didn't really know it at the time, but I know now that I got one of the best.
Sometimes, I think I'd give him away, but in truth, I wouldn't trade him for anyone in the world!
Happy anniversary to my love!
Now, about painting the front door....
