A Great Day!

Today, Carol and I celebrate 30 years of marriage. On this date in 1980, we were married and joined our families. I gained three beautiful daughters and Carol gained a daughter and a son. Carol had been widowed and I divorced and we talked what seemed like forever before we were wed. We discovered that we not only loved each other very much, but also really liked each other! What a concept, eh? The more we communicated, the better it got and the deeper the feelings became. Like life itself, it has not always been easy but always has been good. The right thing always happens. We now have nine grandchildren that fill our home and Montana with photographs and drawings. Our refrigerators are full of their art. The good times make us happy wondering how they will just get better and the difficult times teach us that nothing that is good is free - we have to work for it. Thank you, Carol, for the last 30 years and I can only smile as I wonder what the next 30 will bring.
