Thirty-Nine Years and Counting…

Tomorrow will be our actual 39th wedding anniversary, but we have plans to be relaxing and celebrating–beginning today!   Since we will be busy the entire weekend, I’m writing and posting this early. 

It’s hard to believe that Ed and I been together nearly forty years!  It seems like just yesterday, that we were a young couple, madly in love, and anxious to begin our new life together.  We married in a whirlwind of excitement, then quickly settled down to the business of establishing our new life…as husband and wife.

Following six wonderful, care-free, fun-loving, years as a couple, we eventually felt the need for “more”.   Before long, God blessed us with our first baby, and over the course of the next seven years, He turned a loving couple into a loving family of five!

We’ve had a few ups and downs, raised our three children, and faced our share of life’s challenges, but we’ve weathered it all–together.  There have been a few hard times, but so many more good times!  I wouldn’t trade a minute, because we experienced it all…together.

Our bodies are changing, life’s challenges are getting a little tougher, but these days we’ve got a whole new role to fulfill–as grandparents.  We’ll be making the best of it all…together.

…Changing, our love is growing gold ~ Even though we grow old, it grows new…

You’re still the one I want to talk to in bed ~ Still the one that turns my head

You’re still the one that makes me laugh ~ Still the one that’s my better half

You’re still the one that makes me strong ~ Still the one I want to take along

You’re still the one that makes me shout ~ Still the one that I dream about

We’re still havin’ fun, and you’re still the one!
