I worked yesterday evening, he worked all day. Tomorrow, I leave for four days for a gymnastics meet.
It usually is this way. AT least for the last 10 years or so.
Each year we have had soccer tournaments or trips on our anniversary/his birthday week. It took us two years to celebrate our 25th anniversary!
But, we do it.
We make a point to celebrate in some way. It isn't the cruise, the elaborate trips anywhere, or expensive jewelry; which are all ok. They just aren't us or where we are right now.
We are fairly simple people. I say fairly because we are fairly complicated as well!
We choose to love every day.
I met Steven when I was 16 and I have never looked back. I knew pretty quickly that he was the one I wanted. Thankfully, he wanted me too!
I can not believe that it is 27 years into our marriage and I am looking forward to the next 27! I pray that we will continue to choose each other when it gets tough and that we will continue to show our children and grand-children how to love and be loved. How to follow Jesus in our marriage.
27 years. In this day and age that seems like an insurmountable feat; but it isn't. Don't listen to anyone that says it is.
