May 14, 1983

>> Saturday, May 14, 2011

Today is our anniversary.  On May 14, 1983, Jim and I were married.  We've lived in Tabor (Waynesville, Illinois) all of those twenty-eight years.  Tabor, for anyone that doesn't know, consists of a grain elevator, feed mill, two houses, and... that's it:)  It really doesn't even show up as Tabor on GPS, by the way.

We've had three kids.  Ryan now lives in Pingree Grove, Illinois where he is a Navy Recruiter.  Kristen lives in Vandalia, Illinois where she works in group homes standing up for those who can't stand up for themselves.  I pity the ones who try to cross her!  Nik has just turned eighteen and will be graduating soon and going off to college.

Sooo...very soon we will be empty-nester's.  That will be a new thing for us but I think we will catch on very quickly and enjoy it.

In our twenty-eight years, it hasn't been easy.  We've had births, deaths, joys, sadness, weeping, and laughter, but we are in our marriage for the long haul.  Together we will make it through whatever life throws at us.  We also share an anniversary with our good friends Kent and Laurie Retzer:)  So that is very fun and unusual!

To Jim, who I truly love and always will - forever and ever and who will NEVER EVER read this blog post just because he doesn't - :)  Happy Anniversary...
