Hugh and I both turned 60 last July.
We're going on 38 years of marriage next February.
Who'd a thunk we'd be this old?
Who'd a thunk we'd be married so long?
Who'd a thunk we've done all we've done?
Thanks for the memories!!!
I LOVE YOU!
You're a KEEPER!
I don't know how to say this without sounding somewhat odd, but then I am an odd duck of sorts. I really had to think about getting married. Maybe that's not so odd after all - marriage takes some thinking; I mean we're talking time and in our case all eternity too. But I wondered, maybe I would rather be single?
When Hugh asked me to marry him I remember the Spirit making an impression on me,"You can be happy single, but your greatest happiness will come through marriage" - and I might add who you marry. I said, "Yes." I am thankful for my husband, but I am also thankful for the institution of marriage. It's part of Heavenly Father's plan - The Plan of Happiness. Now after nearly 38 years and still counting, of ups and downs and all around I get it more than ever - marrying Hugh was one of the BEST decisions I ever made.
the big things are the little things.
It is a constant appreciation
for each other and a thoughtful
demonstration of gratitude.
It is the encouraging and
the helping of each other to grow.
Marriage is a joint quest for the good,
the beautiful, and the divine.”
James E. Faust,
"The Enriching of Marriage,"
