Hope your Valentines' Day was a good one!

Randy came home from work yesterday with a smile on his face and told me to close my eyes for a minute. Hmmm .... OK, I did this and when I looked up, here was the surprise waiting for me.

We have been together my entire adult life and have known each other even longer. We studied chemistry together in high school and eventually, that chemistry united and here we are -- married almost 26 years and together nearly 30 and the parents of two wonderful adult children. No, I won't lie and say it's always been a bowl of cherries. We've had our UPS and downs like any other couple, but I don't believe in throwing away something just because it isn't perfect. I believe just working harder will help. I took those vows to "love, honor and cherish til death do us part" seriously and intend to do just that.

Even without the flowers and teddy bear, he shows me he loves me and that he's in this for the long run and we're together forever. Randy, I do love you!


  1. In this day and age when it is so easy to give up and walk away, I enjoy hearing about couples who have been together through thick and thin.

  2. I know. It is too easy to walk away, I think. Maybe in a disposable society, we are forgetting that sometimes things that are broken can be repaired with a little bit of work? It isn't easy, some days I could cheerfully wring his neck, but .... we did stand in that church in front of our family and promise to "love, honor and cherish til death us do part," so ... that should mean something. Right?
