26 Years Ago Today



Well today is my 26th wedding anniversary. Yep, I've been married to that ole thorn in my side for that long! LOL! Gotta say there were times that were rough but we made it so far!

Today also marks another anniversary....the fetal death of our second child, 22 years ago. We don't talk about him much, but I guess heaven needed another angel that day. While we can never replace him, we wouldn't have Joshua and we are so thankful for that.

I didn't share this to make anyone sad or to feel sorry for us. I share this to provide hope to others that may have suffered a loss...to know that life goes on and that it can be wonderful. That things do happen for a reason, even if we can't see what they really are.

So on this day, I want to wish my dear husband a very happy anniversary. We have a simple night planned...pizza, yep you heard that right, pizza and a movie out. Hope everyone has a wonderful day too!

Until next time....

  2. Happy Anniversary Dee! And God bless you ... I know what it's like to give birth to a child too soon for it to survive. I've got 2 little angels in heaven. Enjoy your pizza & movie. Sounds like a great anniversary to me. Blessings, Shirlee
