Today my husband and I have been married for 37 years.
I remember the first year we were married someone told me they had been married 10 years and I thought oh my that's a lifetime!
The weather here has been very bad the past several days. I haven't tried to go to town since Sat. because the roads are not safe in fact they closed the roads down for one and a half days.
This is the same type of weather we had the day we were married. After the wedding we headed out of town and made it to a town 30 miles away before the highways were closed.
One of the girls that stood up with us was stranded here for a week before she could make it back home. (Next time I get married it will be in June.)
When we were married I weighed 92 lbs. my husband weighed about 175.
Today 37 years later I am at 140 and he is 270. Wow. We are still the same people at heart just a little heavier.
We have 3 children and 7 Grand Children and another on the way in April.
It has been a good life.
We usually take off this time of year for a couple of weeks and go to the Smokey Mountains but this year because of family illnesses we are sticking close home. (I'm hoping next year will be better and we can get away for a couple of weeks then.)
37 years have gone by fast. Make the most of each day because the years go by in a blink of an eye.
