This week we will celebrate 15 years of marriage. We met at 32, married at 35, had our son at 36 and our daughter at 39. Hmmm, that makes me a midlife Mom.
Time with my best friend has gone by way too fast. I can’t believe our son is entering Freshman year of high school and our daughter is entering 7th grade in the Fall. I still remember cuddling my babies.
When I tell folks that Randy and I have been together for 17 1/2 years, some ask, “How do you stay together or how do you make it work?” The answer is unequivocally our faith in God keeps our relationship pressing through life’s ups and downs. Our core belief helps us invest in the three C’s of our relationship.
- Caring – Both of us genuinely care for each other which promotes healthy love, respect and trust. – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
- Communication – We talk to each other about anything and everything which promotes a healthy friendship. – Luke 24:14
- Commitment – We’re both in it for the long haul, because we know God has a plan and a purpose for each one of us. – Jeremiah 29:11
As a way of celebrating our anniversary, I’m giving away select children’s ebooks now through June 7-9, 2016. Simply click on my name below and it will link you to Amazon. Enjoy!
