Anniversaries!

Today's Wonder of the World is...Anniversaries!
(Sorry, I can't seem to get this underline function to turn off. It makes everything I say seem important. Try to ignore it.)


There we are (ah...no underline. That's better) with our sweet Katie when we were newlyweds and nearly children ourselves. Don't we look happy? (Try not to notice my 80's perm.)

Today is our 22nd wedding anniversary.
I'm so thankful to have married that man. We have had exciting times and tough times, but we've weathered/enjoyed them together.

I fell in love with him for so many reasons--not just because he's easy on the eyes. His sweet and caring nature. His complete honesty. His big laugh. His quiet faith. His idealism. Even his extroversion, when I'd just as soon hide away.
To be yoked with him (I mean that in a good way!) makes me a better person.

Happy Anniversary, sweetheart!

Happy Anniversary~ Jon and I just celebrated our 26th on Thursday, the 12th~ I too feel so blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life. I greatly appreciate women who know a good man when she sees him and then and marries him. Very nice to meet you~ Sharon@C'estChouette

Happy Anniversary to you both. 22 years!! Wow!! And, even with the perm, you looked so cute and you both look so happy. What a blessing that neither of those things haven't changed.

Our marriage is only sweet 16 this year; only now is our marriage old enough to drive. ;-)

Congratulations to you both! Enjoy this special day!

Happy Flag day anniversary! I always thought it was appropriate for some reason that you two got married on Flag day. Probably the Dudley-do-right Air Force influence....

I do love you both - congratulations. I think it's going to last :)

Happy Anniversary Becky! To you and your husband! You both are fortunate and blessed to have met at such a young age! I was older when I met my husband and partner. I feel truly grateful.

A toast to you both!

You two are a beautiful couple. Happy anniversary.

I did check out your website and read your path to publication. Also learnt that you landed a deal before you had an agent.

I have yet to see your book in Indian bookstores. May be I will have to buy online.

Wow, 22 years! Looks like you sure got Mr.Right! And you're right, he's easy on the eyes. And not to worry about the 80s hairdo, I believe I still have mine. Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary! There's no greater love than that shared with a spouse (other than love for God). Isn't it wonderful to have that sincere trust in each other and know deeply inside that neither spouse would ever seek another one. That's how my wife and I feel, and being best friends is a bonus too. We're going on 9-1/2 years since our marriage in 1999, and its a wonderful blessing.
