16 Years

Today my sexy honey and I have been married for 16 yrs!
Good Grief! Who would have thunk it?! Certainly not anyone we knew when we got married.
We had known each other all of 6 months the day we got married, and we met in a bar on dollar pitcher night...lol

God is amazing in the way He works things out. Neither of us could have imagined where He was going to take us back then. Of course back then we also weren't interested in Him or what He had to say. I am SOOOOO glad HE cared about us though.

He gave me a man that is perfect for me. He loves me...which I think is the most amazing part of it all...lol Cause I am not always so lovable. He gives me pretty much anything I want... but he knows when to put his foot down and let me know when I am being unreasonable. Like every time I tell him it's time for another dog, I really want another female in the house. Or when I am looking at waiting children and share their pictures with him, he reminds me that it's not time yet.

He cooks and cleans and washes dishes and windows. He takes care of the kids and helps take them to Dr appts. His heart is huge! Sometimes I get jealous at how much he likes to help others...lol He doesn't know any strangers, he will talk to anyone and usually he is trying to get them to smile. ;o)

We never end a conversation without saying "I Love you".

Happy Anniversary honey, I love you!

Enjoy!!! What a wonderful testimony. I am fortunate enough to have a wonderful husband too!!! Kind of funny, because our husbands sound similar....I would take in every dog, and adopt every child- If I had my way!

Happy happy anniversary! God does work things out, doesn't he. So awesome how you shared on meeting your husband and how quickly you married him. I do think it is pretty dumb when people date for several years. What a waste of time. You either get married or you don't. Wishing you many, many more years of happiness.
