18


How is is that I am celebrating 18 years of marriage?

Somehow I just don't feel old enough.

I guess it's true what they say.

Time does fly when you are having fun.
And at this point, I'm just thankful
the man still floats my boat.

Phew.

I think everyone goes into marriage with high hopes,
but really...you never know.
You never know if you are going to grow together,
give together, try together.
Be as committed as you need to be.
Be as forgiving and humble as you need to be.

Anyone who's been married for 18 years knows,
it's not always easy.
There are compromises involved and lessons in life involved.

Like I said, it's not easy.

I will tell you what I DO know though,


I know my man makes me a better woman.
My man shows me daily the wonderful life we've created.
He shows me what it looks like to forgive,
and be forgiven.
He shows me patience and support.
He shows me sacrifice and commitment.
He shows me pride in God, marriage, our country and our family.
He shows me deep deep love from a hardworking quiet guy.

I feel proud when I tell people I've been married for 18 years.

I also feel proud to tell people that I not only love my husband,
after 18 years, but I like him. He's still very much my buddy.

I love you, honey.

Tell me your thoughts on marriage,
anniversary's and celebrating them?

Tomorrow I'm going to tell you what my husband get me
each and every year on our anniversary.
I think you might like it.




As always,

for visiting.

  1. OMG, you were a baby when you got married! 18 years, that is a great accomplishment. I hope you and Michael had a very special day together to celebrate. I can't keep this comment rated "G' if I tell you my thoughts on keeping a happy marriage. We always celebrate our anniversary in Vegas and you know what they say about Vegas.

  2. S,
    I know your philosophy girl. And I agree. Although we don't have to go to Vegas (but maybe we should).
    Happy day for you tomorrow (oops, I was a day early on your post).
    Make it a great day.
