23 years of marriage and even more years of true love. That’s what my man and I are remembering today. We’ll celebrate tomorrow but today we look back on many years of love and where it all started as two 7th graders. I can’t say it was true love in 7th grade but that’s when our friendship started. And God knew it would grow into true love.
Yes, true love.
True Love…….wears his jacket while holding your own jacket because it’s just so much better to wear an oversized jacket that smells like him. And true love lets you post shorty short pictures 25 years later.
True love laughs at all the years of taking pictures of me pretending to pin on a boutonniere even though I still can’t pin a flower straight. (My Mom did it all those years!)
True love makes your cheeks flush. It makes you wear an uncomfortable high neck lace dress that you’d never otherwise wear in a million years. Love in the 80’s made your hair almost taller than your man.
True love sometimes dressed up tacky to test the waters. Yep – it was true love. I wore that and he still loved me. (bought at Goodwill and surprised him on a hot date.)
And all the scars, pounds, scrapes and bruises later – it’s still true love that keeps us together. And only God can do that kind of work.
Happy Anniversary Sweetheart!
