My husband and I just celebrated 40 years of marriage together. Where did the time go? It seems like yesterday that I was a bride of 18 and he was 19. We were so young and naive, but so in love. I’m glad I took the chance to marry the love of my life then. I think it was almost like we finished raising each other, then started raising our own kids! Now our kids are grown, and we’re having those wonderful grandchildren to love so much! We’ve made so many great memories together and I’m so grateful for those times! We’ve also shared challenging times together when we had to abide on our committment to our relationship instead of on our feelings at the moment. We’ve learned that we can’t live without each other, but that sometimes we have to learn to live with each other. Isn’t that what a relationship is all about? I’m so thankful that God has blessed me with my husband and our family! So much to be thankful for!!
