Together

We were young when we started out....together.... We spent the days learning about each other and fell in love.
We knew that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives....together. There was still so much for us to learn.

You learned how to fix things.......

I learned how to cook.




Then we knew we just had to raise children.....together. We still had so much to learn.



You learned to be a good father.





I learned to be a good mother.






We didn't always agree, but we learned to accept our differences and to be happy....together...







Together......we watched over our little family,









and made sweet memories......together.








Then we had to learn the hardest lesson to learn yet..... to let go....together.












Together.....through sickness, happy times, heartbreak, and hard times,













we have learned to work together and build each other up.










Together, we reflect on the happy life we formed
and ....together....we look down the road at what is to come.
After 26 years....together....
you're still the one.
Happy Anniversary!
April 26

wonderful tribute to a solid marriage - and reflecting back on a time so few people seem to believe really existed - Norman Rockwell painted what I lived growing up - bless y'all -
