Thankful November 4th: Russell

When I found my husband, I really hit the jackpot. I was in my early 40s. I had never been married and had reached the point where I was fine with that. Funny how life has other plans for us sometimes. We met doing a play at a local community theater. I was the music director, he was a bass in the chorus with a small speaking part, and when the show was over, I took him home and kept him. That was almost 12 years ago, and I now can’t imagine my life without him. And while he is the first one to admit that he isn’t perfect, he is perfect for me.

Weekly Photo Challenge: One Love

When my father passed away in November 2014, my parents had been married for 55 years. It was the only marriage for each, and they had complete fidelity for each other. When my father-in-law passed away, my husband’s parents were just shy of their 60th wedding anniversary. They also were only married to each other and completely faithful. What amazing examples.

Enduring love
