Coincidence or answered prayer? 👼

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! 🙂💕🙏🌸

Happy anniversary Flappys 💞🎉🎂🎈 xx
It's amazing what our minds can remember at different times I think that because you looked up to your grandparents soo much your mind brought back that memory to remind you to be overjoyed, thankful and in awe that you found your soul mate, that you and your husband love each other soo much and have made it thro everything life has thrown at you both stronger for it.
I wish you both many more loving and happy years together xxx

Thank you all so much! You all are special to me, this whole community is. Let me share a funny note. My hubby said this morning, "Well, today is the first day of our next 35 years." I agreed and then said, "That means I'll be 90 & you'll be 94! I don't know if I want to live that long! (Laughing the whole time) But I guess if God wants us to live that long then He'll give us the strength and energy to do so.". He laughed and said, "Yep, I didn't think of that." 😄


Wishing everyone a very blessed day! It's going to be 77 today but by Saturday our highs will be in the 60's...Brrr! 🙂💕🙏🌸
