Today is our 50th wedding anniversary~! Ya-Hoo We made it ~! 50 years ago we were 17 years old and still juniors in high school.. Very young.. DON"T recommend this to anyone. Had our first child in September, and 3 more children to follow. My children were my life.. I loved them dearly and thought that each one was so precious.
On the day of our wedding it was cold and snowy.. When we turned around after the I do's were done and we kissed , everyone in the audiance looked like they had been to a funeral.. So sad.. Yes, we were young, toooooo young but we were being responsible and taking on a new life for each other. Back in 1961 it was expected that if you were pregant before marriage you got married. I went to night school and finished my junior year and Dave went on to finish his junior year and graduated in 1962. We built a home on Dave's parents farm in Ohio. It was great and not saying it was always great because we had our ups and downs, but who doesn't.. My stronghold through out our marriage has been my strong belief in God and he is still with me today. We live in Iowa now and when we go home for my class reunion we always get a standing ovation. We ~ of course are the longest ones married and always win the prize of a huge bottle of aspirin.
We are going out to breakfast this morning and then go to a movie. IT's a snowy cold day just like 50 years ago and it's a wonderful day~! Have a tiggeriffic day~! ta ta for now...from Iowa
