15 Years!

Today, Andy and I celebrate 15 years of wedded bliss! I really can't believe we have been married for 15 years. It doesn't seem that long. I guess when you have such a wonderful husband as mine, the years just fly by! He is truly my match in every way. God gave me an amazing gift when he put Andy in my life. Never could I have imagined in my wildest dreams of being so happy and content with my marriage. I see so many other people hurting and suffering from poor decisions in their marriages. Usually ones that cost them their marriages. It breaks my heart. I am so glad for a faithful and caring husband. It truly is a blessing from the Lord.

So how will we be spending our anniversary? I am taking all three kids to the doctor for their flu shots (actually flu mist!). I also have a doctors appointment. A follow up to my diabetes diagnosis. (I have since returned and according to his scale I have lost 13 pounds since 9/25/08!). Andy will be spending his evening with the teens at Teen Club. Such is the life of a youth worker! We are planning on going out to dinner tomorrow night. It will be fun, though the kids can't understand why we aren't taking them! We seldom go out without them. This will be good for them to see!

So thank God with me today for such a special guy!

Hi, Shannon! I, too, am very blessed with my marriage. Rich and I celebrate our 21st anniverary today, and I agree, God did a wonderful thing when he put us together. How close are we? Last night we opened our cards and we bought each other the EXACT same card !!!
