To Have and To Hold
Today is our 29th wedding anniversary. Today is the anniversary of a day I made one of the best decisions of my life.
I am blessed. I couldn't ask for a better husband, a better father to my children, a better friend, a better partner.
Today is the anniversary of the day I became not only a farmer's daughter, but a farmer's wife.
Today is the day I married a man who shares many of the same values and character traits with which I was raised.
Today is the anniversary of the day I traded my simple five-letter last name for a mammoth 11-letter moniker.
Today I look back and am thankful for the smiles and laughter, the help and encouragement, the trust and understanding. I am thankful for the comfort and caring when things were hard.
Today I am amazed that I've lived more years with this man than I have without him - and that's a good thing.
Today is the anniversary of the day I walked down the aisle of the Pratt First United Methodist Church and began a new journey. Today I celebrate the memories of yesterday, the happiness of today and the promise of our tomorrows. I pray there are many more miles and many more years on this journey.
Love you, Randy ...
