Together we began a journey that has seen my love for him increase year by year. I fully credit the grace of God and years of prayer by my faithful parents for my being blessed with such a wonderful husband.
At the age of 22 I was in no way wise enough to realize all that I was getting when I married my college sweetheart. How could I have known his strength of character, his work ethic and drive to excel and the untold ways he would show his love for me?
The smile that captured my heart never revealed the man who would stand beside me at the grave of our first daughter nor the father who would play “tickle and tackle” on the living room floor with our girls. To continue to learn more about him, to spend the rest of the years I am given as his help meet and friend will make for my “happily ever after” ending.
