Through the Years...38 to be exact!

I can't remember when you weren't there
When I didn't care for anyone but you
I swear we've been through everything there is
Can't imagine anything we've missed
Can't imagine anything the two of us can't do

Through the years, you've never let me down
You turned my life around, the sweetest days I've found
I've found with you ... Through the years
I've never been afraid, I've loved the life we've made
And I'm so glad I've stayed, right here with you
Through the years

Our wedding day, May 16, 1974 was the day this journey started.  We didn't have a map for the journey.  We didn't even have jobs!  The biggest surprise of all.........we didn't have a care in the world!  Wow.............when did that change and we become such worriers?

We were just kids:  you were 18 and I was 17.  Grown-ups?  Not even close.  I can remember us talking about how strange it was that no one could "boss us around" anymore.  We couldn't get over the fact that we could stay out late, go anywhere anytime we wanted, even jump in the car at 2 AM for a trip to Hof's Hut, our favorite restaurant!  

I love that we were friends first. You used to write me the sweetest letters.  Be honest, though....you kind of had a crush on my sister Rhonda.  Hey, you even went on her honeymoon with her and Bob!  

We have created a lot of memories over the past 38 years.  With my memory, it would be tricky to try to write them down!  I know that some of my favorite times are just you and me sitting and talking, not always agreeing, but "usually" listening to the other's viewpoint.  I can still remember what quality attracted me the most when I started realizing that I liked you......your kindness and gentleness.  You have always treated me with care, protecting our relationship, never disrespecting me....I have always known I was safe with you.

My shining knight:

Happy Anniversary..........I hope we have 38 more.
