Wedding Day

39th Wedding Anniversary!

Today is my husband and I’s 39th wedding anniversary!  We were talking about it last night and how it just did not seem possible for time to have gone by that fast!  We have had some wonderful times and some rather bumpy times, but we have always gotten through them with the help of each other!
Wedding DayWe were oh so young, yet so in love!

 (You gotta love those side burns!)

We were married in the Bi-Centennial year of 1976, so our colors were red, white and blue!  That was the color of a lot of weddings that year!

We have had many great times together and fun memories to look back on.  There are not a whole lot of things that I would have changed, other than doing a little less yelling when the kids were little!  :-)

My husband has always supported me in the things that I do.  He encourages me to try new things and to develop new talents.  He is very giving to me and to others.  He is a hard worker and has provided for his family.  He has a driven personality and he has taught our kids and I to be driven in the things that we do.  He is an example of determination and not giving up!  I love all of these things about him…but the thing that I love the most is that we are BEST friends!  We love to be together and love each other’s company, to me that is my most favorite part about being married to my best friend!family picSo after 39 years…4 kids…10 grandkids…I am happy to say that this has been the best ride of my life!  Here’s to another 39 years!

I love you!

    1. Susie, Thank you for your kind comment. Hang in there and things will only get better! May the Lord watch over you and your family and bless you with the things that you need. I would be glad to share my grandkids…in fact, some times I might even be willing to give them away! :) Just kidding of course, grandkids are way better than your own kids!

  6. Rita, I am so happy for you. Count your blessings. Isn’t it nice to be married to someone that you would like to spend your time with than any other person? I lost my husband suddenly three years ago one month shy of celebrating our 37th anniversary. This year I am going to celebrate our 40th anniversary by being sealed to him in the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. My sweet son has paved the way in proxy for this final event. May you and your husband enjoy many more years together. Congratulations.

    1. Sharron, Wow! I am so sorry for your loss, but what a beautiful way to celebrate your 40th wedding anniversary! I am glad that you have been able to take a very sad time and turn it into a beautiful lasting memory! Thank you for sharing your story and taking the time to write your sweet comment. I really appreciate your kind support. May the Lord bless you in all that you do and may you find comfort in the things that you are doing!
