Today Anita and I celebrate 31 years of marriage. We first met each other three years prior, so our relationship began over 34 years ago.
We've traveled a lot of miles in that time, in every way imaginable: We've lived in four states, called eight different places "home," raised four children, between the two of us worked in thirteen different jobs, owned fourteen cars (most passed on to kids!), belonged to the PTA for twenty-six years, had two pets, added two beautiful young women to our family and now have the two most wonderful grandchildren in the world.
Life is good.
Along the way there have been plenty of mistakes, too. Things said and done that shouldn't have been; words and actions that should have been said and done that weren't.
And yet God is good.
So today begins our thirty-second year of marriage, and I am forever grateful to God for bringing Anita and I together in the first place, keeping us together along the way, and showing us how to love each other, and make a difference in our world, together.
Happy Anniversary Anita!
