On July 14, 1984, I met the guy I would eventually marry on October 26, 1985. Last weekend, to celebrate our anniversary, we spent the weekend at Lake Keowee. Saturday night we went bowling until 1:00 AM. On Sunday, after he fixed and served us breakfast, my wonderful husband took our son and me to Cashiers and Highlands. What beautiful places they are. The view of Lake Jocassee and Lake Keowee in the mountains is so gorgeous and breathtaking. We shared the view with many other people and a huge amount of ladybugs. I did take pictures but the pictures do not show its justice…
This year we did not exchange gifts because we were together sharing our time with each other, which is really unusual because his job has him traveling fall, winter, and spring. Needless to say we all had a wonderful weekend just kicking around and exploring the beauty of Gods creations.
Twenty-three years of being married has gone by quickly and I guess the years to come will seem to go by even quicker. I am well blessed and know it. What I have is something that some people never find. Yes, we kid each other about our dreams of winning the lottery and becoming philanthropists but deep down we know we won the lottery that day in July and we won it again March, 1996 when our son was born.
Like everyone we have our ups and downs too but being married to the right person makes those ups and downs so much easier. If someone was to ask me what makes your marriage work, I would have to say we allow each other to grow, we are devoted to each other and our son, and we think a lot alike.
What’s really amazing is even though we were working for the same company (Duke Power now known as Duke Energy) we met on a blind date and from that date on we have been inseparable other than what our jobs have required us to be.
