Quilt With Us

Every year since I have been a member of QWU I have posted my wedding anniversary date.  Well it has rolled around again and today DH and I have been married 43 years.  This year, this morning, he gave me a card that on the front has a pic of two cats sitting on a bench looking at the moon and stars and the title says "We've got everything"  and when I opened it up it says "Because We Have Each Other".    Then he said in his own writing that he hopes I have a good day and that he hopes we can walk together into the next 43 years!!    For those of you who may not know, I fell down the staris in December and broke my leg and had to have surgery, twice.  I have been non-weight bearing on my right leg ever since.  He is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel by saying we will walk into the next 43.  This man, this wonderful man has been my legs, my arms, my everything since falling in December. I do not know what I would do without him. He has always been the love of my life and still is and we have gone through the crazy passionate years together (not being able to keep our hands off each other) You know what I mean, grin........, child raising, gray hair, loss of hair, grandchildren (7), sickness, and now recovering from the fall.  We took those vows seriously, through better or worse, and for what I've learned about love and sticking it out even when the going gets rough, Growing together in faith and in the love of God, I pay tribute to my man today.  I thank my God for the blessing of my husband.  There is nothing in this world like loving those grandbabies together, knowing the other person is there for you when you need them.  Dale you are my hero and I love you dearly.  I had to share this with my QWU family!!!!!! Never take a day for granted and always tell them you love them.

Happy Anniversary to you and Dale.  "The family that prays together...stays together"  is something that I firmly believe in.  What a wonderful tribute to your marriage and to your husband.Many blessings to you both.

Very well said for a couple that has been married 43 years.  I will never get to 43 years with my husband, but hoping I can get to 25.  Only 11 more years to go.  Congratulations on your anniversary and I hope you walk together for another 43 years.

Thank each of you for your comments.  This has been a good day.  For those of you who also have been married for many years I send my congrats out to you too.  We are testimonies to young women that marriage does work and can be the greatest blessing.  Keep faith in God and trust Him even when you don't trust yourself.  He will bring you through the tough times and make you stronger because of it.  Love to each of you!!!! Linda

What a day to celebrate my friend!  I'm so happy for you and for Dale. God certainly brought two wonderful people together. You are such a wonderful example to your kids and grandkids, as well as to many others around you.  Love you girl!
