Time sure does fly! It has been 15 years since the day I said "I do". When I think back to that day, I sure seemed so very young and I had my whole future ahead of me....and now, I still feel young (most days) but time seems to be slipping away. Darrel and I have been through so very much and still, here we are! Yes, the same picture from last year's anniversary...I think I am too lazy to scan a different one from out photo album...
I wrote a sentiment to Darrel today, on the card I made him and it said something to the effect...we had to go through everything we have, to get to this very moment today. I feel that is so very true. Change one little thing and so many things could be so very different. We have been together for so long, that we have actually "grown-up" up together...when we started this journey together in the beginning, I was only 12 and he was 14, so I meant that quite literally.
Sadly, we could not be together today...he works the overnights now, so I was sleeping when he went to bed and I woke up, when he was sleeping and then I went to my Mom's to help set-up for her garage sale. We did exchange cards and sweet words on the cards....and spoke on the phone. It seems as you grow older, some things just do not work out, as you would like. But that is part of having a family, an understanding relationship/marriage and just knowing that you love each other in your hearts. Now I am home and he has left for work. We will do something together tomorrow or this weekend.
Now, I must get to work...tick tock, the time does not stop and TDIPT Mercantile will be updating before to long. I have some sweet dollies calling my name. *smirk* Have a wonderful evening. Toodles, ~Tonya
