Today is our 20th anniversary! I have now been married half my life. We dated 3 1/2 years before that so we have been together a lifetime. We met at the mall. I was there with my friend and he was there with his three friends. It was the hangout way back then. Not a lot to do in Mobile. Our first date was a week later and we went to see Beverly Hills Cop. We tried to relive memories and watch it one year but it was filled with cuss words.
He is the quiet type and very humble. He does not try in any way to lift himself up in other people's eyes. He keeps me grounded. Probably the most used discription of me that people say is that I am bubbly. They probably mean bubble headed and are just being nice. On a retreat I took with friends we each took turns telling one thing we see in the other people. One girl said that I remind her of champagne, that I have a soft bubbling spirit. See, if it wasn't for him I would just fizzle all over the place.
A few years ago I saw a commercial for E Harmony. I wondered if my husband and I filled out the questionaire if we would be matched up. You see, we are so different. I think God spoke to me and showed me that in their eyes we might not be considered a match. Because they match to have a harmonious match. But, God's plan is to use our mate to compliment us and at times sharpen us. He uses them to work out the kinks in us and make us more like Jesus. That isn't always harmonious.
We have been through good and bad times. The wonderful thing is that we can speak without words. We know that we are here during the good and the bad. We have now lived more years together than with our parents. Half a lifetime. Here's to many more! I love you!
