Today, David and I have been married 21 years. That sounds like a big number, but time has passed swiftly. Who would have thought when we went on that blind date that it would lead to this?What a blessing he is to me!
He completes me. He has strength in areas that I am weak. He has never held me back from any dream that I have, but has always urged me to “go for it”!
I prayed for a man with a sense of humor, and I got one! His dry wit and double-meaning jokes are a source of joy (most of the time).
He has always been a good provider, with great money-sense. I so admire his money wisdom and wisdom in general. He is very good at “weighing the options” and coming to a good decision.
He is the #1 supporter for my quilting
addiction business and craft. He chauffeurs me to quilt show, works at the show, praises my entries, and even doesn’t complain about the purchases I make! I know quilters that must hide their fabric stash from their mates, but I never have to worry. Of course, he doesn’t have to hide his fishing-related purchases from me. That would be because 50% is for ME to use!
He has an adventurous spirit! Even at our mid-to-late-fifty ages, he still is willing to try new things. (Exhibit 1, the kayak purchase.) We have braved alligators to fish in the swamps in our kayaks.
We share lots of the same interests, and that makes finding activities we both enjoy easy. Fishing and bowling rank at the top of that list. Yet, we each have other interests… he hunts, I quilt and knit.
I’m sure you get the idea that he is a special person, and I am so glad he has been in my life for the last 21 years.
I love you, David! What adventures lie ahead of us? No one knows, but I know I will enjoy the rest of my years spent with you.
