Another Year Has Gone By And I'm Still The One By Your Side!!!
On November 14th we CELEBRATED 25 years of marriage!!!! Knowing how much Satan works on marriages and families I have definitely decided that every anniversary needs to be CELEBRATED. Each and every year becomes monumental!!! We spent some much needed alone time in California. We enjoyed a day at Disneyland with each other and I felt guilty for a few seconds not having the kids with us but we had soooo much FUN. We did a session in the San Diego Temple and spent some time on the beach. We talked a lot about the past 25 years and how much we have grown as a couple. When you get married young, you really do grow-up together. I know there were things that Tim did that drove me crazy when we first got married but it has been sooo long that I can't remember what they were!! I am thankful for the spirit bearing witness to my soul that he was the one because I have clung onto that witness many times through the years. I am grateful for Temple covenants, unconditional love and forgiveness.
I love you Tim - it's a pleasure growing OLD with you!!
On October 29th Mary was baptized. She was so excited !!! We are very thankful for the opportunity to raise this beautiful girl. She has been a blessing to our family. She is a little sponge when it comes to gospel learning and she loves to sing. I Love To See The Temple is her favorite primary song. We sing it almost every Monday for F.H.E.. The day was packed with family activities. We spent the morning in the Temple, my niece and nephew (Ciara and Huston) received their endowments. There is nothing better then a Celestial room full of loved ones. It is heaven on earth. We hurried home for Maryjane's big day and then spent the evening enjoying good food and fun company. We had our own little trunk or treat in the driveway and all the kids were happy:-)
M.J. we love you and hope you know just how special you are!!
