12 Years

Has it been 12 years?

On one hand it seems like yesterday and on the other hand it seems like a life time -- both feel good!

Yes, today is our anniversary! As I think back over these past 12 years and how they have evolved, how God has changed both of us (for the better) and how amazing this journey has been I stand in awe of His almighty plans!

We had NO idea! God did! All we knew was that we were supposed to be together. Most of the rest of the world did not agree. We went "against the grain" and trusted what God was telling us both.

I don't know of another couple who came from such opposite backgrounds, who are so different in their "paces" of life, who know each other as well and who love each other as much!

We have been through things in these past 12 years that most couples don't go through in a life time. God has taken us "through the valley of the shadow of death" when Monty had his heart attack and sustained us and brought us out on the other side of real life!

We have lived in our home, more space than the two of us need. We have lived in "144 square feet of marital bliss" and then graduated to "244 square feet of marital bliss" with our newer camper -- and survived -- thrived in all the spaces!

God has directed us in this journey of life together and our prayer? That He will continue to do so, that He will continue to bless us beyond imagination and that life will continue to be an adventure with Him at the helm!

I love you Monty and thank you for being my husband, my partner and my bestest friend in the whole wide world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Until next time . . . bless you all. Susan and Monty
