Fifteen years

I will be here
And you can cry on my shoulder
When the mirror tells us we’re older
I will hold you
And I will be here
To watch you grow in beauty
And tell you all the things you are to me
I will be here

I will be true to the promise I have made
To you and to the One who gave you to me
“I Will Be Here”, Steven Curtis Chapman

Today is my anniversary – fifteen years happily married. I have been wonderfully blessed.

My wedding anniversary also marks another anniversary of sorts. Just a short time after we married, my husband talked me into leaving my job as a technical illustrator to pursue a career doing what I truly loved. So fifteen years happily making little horse-shaped objects, too!

I also noticed that yet another anniversary is approaching. I started this blog on July 14 of last year. I am going to try to make something special to celebrate, so check in on the fourteenth!

    Happy Anniversary! I didn’t realize we were sisters in relationship happiness! We both got out of unhappy marriages, and just as you and Alan were finding each other, I was finding Herman (we will be 16 on July 16th)—the best thing in the world is to have the love and support of a good partner! Love to you both!

    That’s so cool, Mel! You are right – there really isn’t any greater blessing in life. Love back to you and Herman!
