40 Years and Filling in the Blanks

We were babies. Some thought we would not make it, yet here we are 40 years later.

We have been looking through pictures from years gone by and each one of us remembering things the other did not.

We fill in the blanks for one another. That is what marriage is…not perfect, not easy, not always fun and a lot of work.

But, you fill in the blanks for each other. Our faith has allowed us to love each other when we really did not like each other.

Our faith has gotten us through the good, bad and the ugly.

Our faith helps us fill in the blanks.

We are grateful for each other and appreciate each other more and more every day.

When we got in the jeep this afternoon, “by chance” a song by the BeeGees was on…

“How Deep is Your Love” was playing. Yes, we both got tears in our eyes and went back to those days we first fell in love.

We still love each other. A lot. More than we ever thought possible.

We don’t always agree, and we bicker still…but he takes care of me when I am down(which has been a lot lately) and I encourage him.

We fill in the blanks for one another, and hopefully, God willing…we will do so for another 40 or so years.40 Years!

Happy Anniversary

Just wondering where this last year went?

Change that…wondering where the last 38 years went?  We have been together 41 years and it seems like yesterday.  But alas, we look at our pictures and realize that it truly was that long ago.

Life together.  It is not perfect.  We are not always happy.  But we are content.  We love each other more today than we did yesterday (cue Elvis song, Ku’uipo from Blue Hawaii)

Each season of life has brought it’s challenges. And without the love of God and His constant love and help it would be so hard. My goodness, it is still hard!  But the Father never leaves us stranded.

I wouldn’t want to do life with anyone else.
