"Enjoy the little things in life ~ one day you'll wake up and realize they were the big things"

Taken from one of my favorite books (sorry, it's a bit long) . . . 

"To be married is to have someone to curl up against when the world seems cold and life uncertain. It is having someone who is as concerned as you are when your children are ill . . . it is wrapping wrinkled knees in warm blankets and giggling without teeth! To the person you marry you are saying "When my time comes to leave this world and the chill of eternity blows away my birthdays and my future stands still in the night; it's your face I want to kiss good-bye. It is your hand I want to squeeze as I slip from time into eternity. As the curtain closes on all I have attempted to do and be; I want to look into your eyes and see that I mattered. Not what I looked like. Not what I did or how much money I made. Not even how talented I was. I want to look into the teary eyes of someone who loved me and see; I mattered!" (T.D. Jakes).  

So thankful for God's faithfulness to us over the past 21+ years of marriage.
