Thread: Celebrating our 44th Wedding Anniversary

    Celebrating our 44th Wedding Anniversary

    Yesterday one of our adult granddaughters arrived with her 6 year old daughter and her 22 month old daughter to spend Christmas with us.

    Today Sharon and I celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary with them.

    I met her on a blind date....3 days later on our 4th date I asked her to marry me. She was a young blonde divorce with 2 kids from her former marriage. 9 days later I signed over my checking and savings accounts when I left for the US Navy bootcamp. 2 days after I got home from boot camp we were married. A couple years later I adopted those 2 kids and we had 1 more.....

    She puts the bright colors in my life.......she makes me smile........she makes me look down and shake my head......she is mother to our 3 kids......grandmother to our 8 grandkids....great-grandmother to our 6 great-grandkids....she is my lover......my best friend.......she is my worst critic........she's gives me reason to want life to last forever......she makes me smile........

    I don't know what I did to deserve her........I won't ask.....I will just be forever grateful she is in my life.....

    If you kids keep up like this, I think this marriage thing is gonna work out for you two. Seriously, you've written a beautiful tribute to Sharon. I doubt she would have stuck around if she didn't feel the same way about you.

    Congrats to both of you, Ken.
