As I woke up this morning a very distant memory crossed my mind. I was about 16 when both sets of grandparents were celebrating their 50th anniversary. (They were who I looked up to and valued as a child.) Anyway, I remembered being at the celebration of one set of grandparents, and as they were saying what had kept them together, what had helped their love last, I remember quietly saying, "Lord, I want a marriage like that." At the time my parents and 2 siblings had a total of 10-11 marriages & divorces among them. My baby sister started on her wedding day, to her second husband, "well if it doesn't work out the divorce won't be so hard since I'll been down that road already." Shocked I stared then said, "Why would you think of divorce on the day you're marrying?" She just shrugged and walked away.
Today is mine & my hubby's 35th wedding anniversary. 💟⛪💕 I am so thankful to God for a man who thinks the same about all the important decisions we've made as I do, and loves me as much as I love him, who's willing to work through every single problem we've faced during this time; one who respects our marriage vows and me. I've been blessed, truly blessed! And I just want to let the world know how much I love and value him, and thank God for him, and thank my grandparents for the role models they played!! I wish everyone could find that special someone to spend their lives with!!
Wishing everyone as good a day as possible, with hugs love & prayers! 🙂💕🙏🌸
