In these 39 years we have raised four amazing children, who have married equally amazing spouses and they have blessed us with 14 truly amazing grandchildren. We have been loved by 1 cat, 2 birds, and 9 dogs. As well as by an innumerable number of fish. Plus 7 grand dogs.
Mr. Man has been employed by 14 different companies. I have been employed by nine different employers myself. We have driven 18 different vehicles; company cars excluded.
We have lived in three different states and in 13 different homes. We have survived losing two homes; one to foreclosure due to loss of employment and one to a flood, that house we were renting. We now live in our dream home.
We have attended 8 different wards. We have served in a variety of different callings. I have served in the Primary, in the Young Women organization and in Relief Society. I have also taught Seminary. Mr. Man has served in the Young Men organization, in the Elder’s Quorum, and on the High Council but most notably he has served as a counselor to 6 different bishops over a nearly 25 year period.
In the world we live in today, 39 years of wedded bliss is a rare commodity indeed. I wouldn't say our 39 years has always been kicks and giggles but it has been a ride I would never trade. We have laughed together, we have cried together and we have come together as one. Each year we have added upon the goodness and richness of our union started just 39 short years ago.
Here's to the eternities Mr. Man. I.Love.You!
I wasn't kidding about our ages!
