Today (August 21) is our anniversary. We have been married 26 years. It doesn't seem like it has been that long, but these pictures tell a different story!
Bob no longer has a full head of hair, although his weight is about the same as it was the day we married. I, on the other hand have a few more gray hairs and quite a few more pounds!
We were 20 and 23 years old when we got married. We thought we were quite mature and had our lives all planned. Well - we found out that things don't always go the way you plan them and we matured a little along the way
One of the other things we have learned is that God does know what is in store for us and he sticks beside you through good and bad. He has taken care of us through job loss, lack of money and a few health issues with our kids. We can say we have truly been blessed. We have 3 great kids who are now grown and 1 is married. We both have jobs and are in good health. That is a lot to be thankful for!
I can also say I am thankful for the husband God gave me. He has been a loving, caring, funny Dad to our kids and husband to me. He is always there for me when I need him and has been my best friend for all these years. It has been a good 26 years!
