A Most Wonderful Day to Celebrate...


 It's kind of hard to believe that it's been 19 years since we said, "I do"!! Nineteen of the most wonderful years of my life! This was definitely one of the best decisions I've ever made! I am more in love with Craig than I ever thought possible. The years have brought much...
we've cried, we've laughed, we've grown. The many trials have brought us closer together, the many joys have brought bliss. Nineteen years have also brought 12 children as fruit of our love. We've had so many amazing opportunities and blessings. I look forward to seeing what more God has for us in the many years ahead!
 We were very young the day we married, I was just 17, but the great part about getting married so young is that we have the opportunity to be together for much longer than if we'd married at an older age!! Many were not very encouraging to these two "children" getting married. In fact, many said we'd only last a couple of years....well, all I can say is, with Christ at the center of our lives we have made it much much longer! We give Him all the honor and glory for what we have together, because without Him, we very much could have been just another statistic!
I am a very blessed woman.......

 Thank you for 19 wonderful years, Babe!! I love you and am so blessed to be called your wife! Happy Anniversary! Here's to 50+ more years!!!
