May 24, 1975

Forty-four years. Two children. Four grandchildren. Ten homes in three countries. 
Thanks be to God for each and every blessing: for the incalculable number of special moments,
exciting adventures and treasured memories bestowed upon us as we've built our lives together.
Forty-four wonderful years have passed in what seems like the blink of an eye. 
Yes, "I do"; and I would absolutely do it all over again! 
From this morning's most timely devotion, Ephesians 5:2:
"And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, 
a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God".

Life is Good!

Happy Anniversary! My husband and I are celebrating our 44th a week from today. Also have 2 children and 4 grandchildren. Any, yes, Life is Good!
Any plans for your 45th? We're trying to figure that out.

Congratulations, Mrs. G.! What a milestone--and don't you two look like such sweet young things. But then, you still do. ;)
(We hit #41 next month.)

Happy Anniversary. I forgot that you share the same anniversary (day& year) as friends of ours. Sadly she lost her husband last fall. I made her a quilt from some of his shirts and filled it with photos of their life together. Here’s to many more happy years together.
