Today is our Half Year Anniversary!!

I was just looking at the little anniversary counter at the bottom of the page and realized that we have been married 28 1/2 years. All I can say is 'WOW'. Who would have ever thought that we could have made it this far. I know the first chaplain we went to to perform our wedding, refused to perform it because he never thought we would make it. He said we had three strikes against us.

1. We were too young (18 and 22)
2. We were from different faiths (Protestant and Catholic)
3. Both of our parents were divorced.

Isn't God GREAT!!! I don't believe we were too young, just unprepared. Ralph became a Christian 10 months after we were married. Here we are 28 1/2 years later and still together. And we knew it is only by the grace of God. He has blessed us and prospered us, not necessarily monetarily (but we aren't poor either), but definately spiritually. He has also blessed us with four wonderful children. What more could we ask for.

Thank you, God for blessing me with the most wonderful husband in the whole world and for helping us to remain together when the whole world didn't give us a chance.

Thank you, Ralph for putting up with a lot of immaturity over the years. I still feel I have a lot of growing up to do. But you have been such a patient, wise, discerning husband. Thank you for being the head or our home. I look forward to many, many more years together.
