Love/Patience/Understanding/Sacrifice/Kindness = 20 years of happiness!

Twenty years ago today... I was a teenage bride with stars in my eyes as I gazed into the eyes of somebody I knew I loved so much. Dating him had it's moments of ups and downs, just as most teenage love stories go... leaving MANY to wonder if this marriage would last! I knew in my heart without a doubt that it would indeed and I am so thankful to say that he is still the love of my life. The song "Love Song" by Taylor Swift SOOOOOO depicts the beginning of our relationship...we laugh every time we hear it! (stop the music (playlist) at the bottom of the page and listen to the video at the end of this blog). I have been so super Blessed in my marriage and literally growing up with Glenn has been one heck of a ride. A ride I wouldn't take with anyone else! It amazes me that it's been twenty years since we said our vows and started our life together. God has blessed me many times over in my life, but perhaps one of the most profound blessings was in the husband he chose to give me. I can honestly say that I love my husband more now than the day I married him. He is a wonderful husband. He is smart, funny, handsome, caring, hardworking, honest and compassionate! I love that he is sensitive and has a heart the size of his entire body! He make me feel beautiful even on my ugliest days. LOL And makes me feel like what I am doing, being a mother and a housewife, is the most important job on earth. A LOT has changed since that day twenty years ago and yet so much still remains exactly the same...We have faced challenges that may not have always been easy. Yet through it all, our LOVE for one another has remained strong!I hope my children find the kind of love that we did, and that they too know that marriage takes work, patience and understanding. Together we produced the most sweetest, caring and God Loving Children and I’m so thankful that we get to be their parents TOGETHER! Now trust me when I say that he is all that and then some, but he has his days... as do I! When we have complete melt downs and we wonder how we ever made it so far LOL!!! Thank you Glenn for 20 years of FUN!
