Anniversary [yes..on April Fool's Day]

43 rd  Anniversary

Today is Kenny and my , 43rd anniversary..  Where
did all those years go? It seems only yesterday , that
those two young folks said, " I do".

Kenny is one of the kindest and most honest men ,you
 will ever meet. I admire him and always have. He is
a wonderful  Christian man that loves God and loves his
family. He is funny , and keeps me laughing.[And yes,
he can make me mad too.lol] He is always there,
when I need a pick me up.. and he is always their
to defend me [He thinks I am always right.ha]

We were very young.. I was 171/2 yrs old, and he was
19 yrs old. [Yes..we were too young!!! ha]And we had a
hard time, especially during the  early years.. Raising 2
kids, and both of us returning to school and getting
our  college education. But.. you can do it, with God's
help.

Someone ask me," would you do it again?" Yes. I would!!  I
could look the world over, and never find a better husband
or father for my kids or  grandfather for my grandkids.

Today's Plans...
Kenny is working today at his camp house.. I am working
at home. But , we will celebrate later today.. We are going
out to eat. [and let me add... a couple days ago.. he came in
the house holding a big bunch of daffodils in his hand..He said,
" Happy Anniversary"... He knows , this is my favorite flower.
the warm temps were going away, with freezing temps
returning. He knew they would be gone , on our anniversary.
You see. He is so NICE.!!
Also..The night we got married, we were too poor to go
on a honey moon.. so we went to our newly rented apartment.
I had bought a cheap frozen lemon pie, and we eat it that night.
So each year.. I buy one of those pies.. They are special..even
though , not so tasty.ha

I love you Kenny ..  forever!

    43 years together is absolutely amazing and beautiful- it is outstanding in a world where so many marriages don't even last 43 days. I believe you are both blessed to have each other and a testament to how true and lasting love can be.
    May you have many many many more wonderful years together!

  7. Oh wow, your pie tradition is seriously romantic, so much more so than the "jewellery and Hallmark" kind of romance is. Happy Anniversary to you both, very special people xo
