Celebrating 20 years with Chinese food!
Hubby and I are coming up on our 20th wedding anniversary (22 years together) and plan to go out for Chinese food. :) It is kind of mind boggling 20 years have gone by already. But I am not ashamed to admit I am proud of us for making it this far, by the grace of God, because He is the thread that holds us together.
Like any couple, we have had our ups and downs over the years, but I am so grateful for my husband. He is a very dedicated, loving and supportive husband and father. I wouldn't be able to do all that I do without him. Truly. He does laundry, he cooks, he does dishes, he vacuums, he cleans, he corals children (and animals), he puts up with a wife who borders on being a work-a-holic and is my best encourager. I can honestly say I love him more now than I did when I married him, and there were a few years I doubted I would ever be able to say that! (Just being honest here.) I am very grateful to have my husband by my side being the one person I'd prefer to be with than anyone else (other than our children). :)
Our oldest daughter suggested we go away overnight but I don't feel comfortable with doing that just yet. Maybe once I have two who are "officially" adults, we'll give it a try, who knows.
Anyhoo...happy early anniversary to us! :)
And it's always nice to hear about a couple who had a rough time and made it through. It gives hope to those of us dealing with that same situation.
