So much can happen in thirty-nine years.
An abundance of laughter interspersed with tears.
Two families came together and strived to make one.
It wasn’t easy for anyone.
The children adjusted to new family traditions.
We gave up some old ones and made some additions.
It’s hard to prepare for things unforeseen,
When the age of your kids range from three to thirteen.
Despite everything that life threw our way,
We survived each crisis and learned how to pray.
All four kids married and had two children.
They all have a good foundation to build on.
We have four great grandchildren for the time being.
The next in line is only eighteen.
We’ve had some health scares that your prayers helped us face.
And we’ll always be grateful for the gift of God’s Grace.
In thirty-nine years we’ve loved eighteen pets.
We gave them all homes that were as good as it gets.
Marriage isn’t made of just honeys and dears
But we’re looking forward to sharing many more years.
Names of pets below
