Wedded Bliss

Dave and I celebrate 13 years of marriage today . . . WOW! He told me this afternoon that it was 13 years of wedded bliss and then said, "well at least 5" Ha!Ha!

As in every marriage it takes a lot of give and take from both sides. When we were first married, I did what so many women (I think) do and made Dave my life, I didn't keep up with my girlfriends, I wanted him to be home all of the time, I was mad when he didn't stay home -- most of you can relate. And then of course he still wanted to fish when he wanted, go out with friends, so on and so forth and of course having a mad wife didn't necessarily beckon him home.

We were both young and selfish and had so much to learn. Both Dave and I are grateful that we didn't give up and kept working on ourselves and our marriage. We have a stronger marriage now than we could have ever imagined having 12-13 years ago. And I just wanted to take this moment to say . . . YEAH, US! We are more in love, more determined, and best of all, we are best friends! God has truly blessed our marriage!
