What I learned this Week...
I learned that 24 years goes much faster than you think it will! Mark and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary on Monday the 24th.
It has been quite a journey to say the least. We have so many priceless memories. We were married for 11 years before we had the boys, so we have a lot of pre-kids memories. We were married at 20 so we basically grew up together. I cherish those times when it was just he and I but our lives became so much richer after we started our family. Of course now we couldn't imagine our life without the boys. Then we added Max and Skylar (our dogs) and even though having pets can be cumbersome, they are now tightly woven into the fabric of our lives also.
Our wedding song was "Just you and I" by Crystal Gail and Eddie Rabbit". Does that age us or what? Just so you know the song wasn't new when we chose it to be "our" song ;) Even though we have many wonderful family and friends who love us and care for us when it comes right down to the nitty gritty of life, this song has fit on so many occasions. We've had to pull together and draw from one anothers strength to make it through.
Every single time something has come up such as sitting in a doctors office and hearing those words "Mark you have cancer." He has looked into my eyes and I into his and without words knowing we were going to get through this together. Every once in awhile I still get stopped in my tracks when I think of how very lucky I was to find Mark at such a young age and know he was the one. I still can't believe how fortunate I am.
Happy Anniversary Honey!
