25 Roses for 25 Years
Yesterday Kim and I celebrated our 25th anniversary! On one hand I feel like that was a VERY long time ago, and yet on the other hand it could have been yesterday. We've done a lot of living since then - not always fun, but altogether very rewarding and I can say without hesitation that I would do it all over again. In the 25 years Kim and I have been married, we've loved and squabbled; raised two beautiful daughters; said goodbye to one mother and one father, 4 grandparents, numerous aunts and uncles and a few friends. We've been rich and we've been poor; we've changed sizes, jobs and houses; we've traveled - more before the kids and less after they were born; We've loved and lost pets; supported each other through surgeries and illnesses; worshiped together and fought with each other. We've shared friendships, fears, hopes, dreams and tears, and through all of that we've built a life and a history together that cannot be replaced by anyone else on Earth. Thank you Kim, for being a wonderful husband and daddy. It hasn't always been easy, but it's been such a worthwhile adventure! I'm looking forward to the next 25 with you!
