Today is my 23 wedding anniversary.
I remember when I got married, an older cousin said to me: “ You think you love him now? Just wait, it get’s better.” and I thought – how could I possibly love him more then now? Part of me couldn’t wait. . . part of me doubted her.
I mean after all, what would she know about love and life – she was older and had been married like forever.
I was in my 20’s.
I knew everything.
I was getting married.
I think back on that and laugh at myself, 23 years later, I’m still in my 20’s but, now there is a big difference:
I know only one thing now.
She was right!
and I’m blown away.
1.) I’m thankful today is Father’s day . . . and I have a reason to celebrate. Even though my father is not here physically – He is always with us.
2.) I am thankful for 23 years with Mark.
3.) I am thankful he works so hard to keep our family going.
