Blissful years

My wife and I will be celebrating 24 blissful years of marriage this week.  I can still remember seeing my beautiful bride walking up the Church aisle to join me at the altar.  She truly is the love of my life.

During our marriage, we've experience many blessings.  We had two loving, smart, beautiful girls; we've experienced success in our professional lives; and we have a beautiful home.  God is good!

Of course, we've had the natural ups and downs that come with sharing a life together.  (After all, my poor wife married an eccentric, perfectionist, and sometimes moody artist - LOL!)  However, we both share a love and commitment to the Lord that has helped overcome every obstacle in our marriage.

Your aquarium cards are awesome! I like them very much.
Reading your blog really warmed my heart (is that expression correct?) I am married for 32 years now and it is still wonderful.
Thanks for your visit and lovely comment!

Happy anniversary! We just celebrated our 25th last June--but have had to postpone the trip to the beach we wanted to take. Both the steampunk and the romantic tag are beauties. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #59

Congratulations. DH and I celebrate 44 years of marriage this year. We have two super sons, lovely D's.I. L. and four beautiful grandchildren, tow girls and two boys. DH and I are also best friends as well as man and wife. We have been so blessed. Anne x #37
Hi Arnoldo, you are indeed a lucky man, but I think your wife is lucky too. Marriage requires understanding from everyone involved and more than a bit of turning a blind eye to those things that we find annoying after all non of us are perfect, well except you and I of course Lol! Congrats to you both, Angela x 28

Very many congratulations, Arnoldo! What a lovely, happy post. Your story so mirrors my own (28 years for us, and no kids) and I love him more and more with the passing years!!

Silver wedding celebrations for you next year! I had such fun making something special for my hubby, and we had a wonderful few days away and took my parents - the last time we were all away together.

Thank you for your lovely supportive and prayerful comment. I am sure all will be well. They prayed for me at church yesterday, and several people individually afterwards. The prayers mean so much to me.

I am so glad you like my embroidery! After many years of not doing any, it's lovely to get back into, especially as I feel rather unsettled at the moment and really don't feel like working in my studio, so it's nice to have something I can pick up and do, that's creative.

I am glad to report that Mum is quite a bit better, and her mood and behaviour have improved a lot, too. Long may it last! My dear hubby has taken so much off my shoulders to alleviate the stress, which helps me no end.

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #44
