A Celebration of 40 years!
Today is the 40th anniversary of the day I married my high school sweetheart. I feel blessed to have married someone who I love more today than ever. When we were talking about it and saying how we would each do it over again, right down to the vows, my husband said that it has been a very real learning process. It has been for both of us. No matter that we had some rocky times, we emerged each time loving each other more and our relationship that much richer. What is a secret for a long lasting marriage? We both say that hanging on and not giving up on such a rewarding investment. Marriage is a commitment that has made us strong. We could not be celebrating our happiness if we had not had our shares of struggles too. We still have much to learn as we watch my husband's parents, who will celebrate 65 years in May. They, like us, are still crazy about each other. What wonderful role models they have been for us!
