Husband Walter and I are celebrating 45 years of marriage today. We have always been a bit casual about anniversaries. That fact has never bothered me. I have been blessed with a mate who regularly works on preserving and strengthening the glue of our relationship.
That doesn’t mean we haven’t ever been beset by insidious solvents that are capable of dissolving the glue. But regular “glue maintenance” and dependence on a faithful and sovereign God has given us the joy of both spontaneous and planned celebrations of life throughout the year.
So today I celebrate life with one of those rare men, a guy who “sticks” through good times and bad, who has never stopped growing in all aspects of life, who accepts me with all my irritating faults, who encourages me and engages me in adventures I would never have enjoyed on my own. He is God’s gift to me.
Happy anniversary, hubby!
