No, no, not nineteen children. Nineteen years. Of marriage. Today is our anniversary! We went for a Japanese dinner and ice cream for dessert. It is wonderful being married to my Freddy. I asked him at dinner if he ever thought we'd make it this far. His reply "Yes, but I thought it would be a lot harder. I didn't account for love being able to carry us through so much." I have to agree. It is sort of what we expected as young people looking forward, but we hadn't counted on it still being so good after a lot of time. The years did not diminish our capacity for one another, they actually multiplied our ability to share what we already liked to begin with.
That is really a blessing!
