Today, my husband and I have been married twenty-two years. It sure doesn't seem like that much time has passed until I look in the mirror! It has been a fun, fun ride with few bumps along the way. I'd like to think that it is because I'm such a joy to live with but I know the real truth. He puts up with a lot from me and I do the same from him. We have always tempered our marriage with a lot of humor and a lot of prayer. It seems to be working!
We've got both kids going places this weekend and we're going to spend some much needed time together alone. I have to say, I'm looking forward to it a lot. Some of our friends are beginning to bemoan the empty nest syndrome, I'm not. It's not that I don't love my kids with all my heart. I just know that in order for us to be successful parents, they must move on and be on their own someday. I look forward to that day when my kids are successful adults and I can come and visit them and hopefully, my grandchildren! I don't want to rush it though, they are only fourteen and twelve! We have at least eight to twelve more years of actively being parents of kids who live mostly at home. I'm just looking ahead and seeing a time when my husband and I can have more time for just the two of us. We like to be together!
Happy anniversary boyfriend! My kids hate it when I call my husband my boyfriend. He can't be my boyfriend since we're married apparently. Well, I don't care, he will always be my BF!
