I look back to 1972, two 18 year olds, fresh out of high school starting a life together. It has gone so quickly, yet seems so long ago.
I watched my young husband grow into a man and was amazed at what talents and abilities surfaced when the need arose. He watched his young wife become a nurturing mother of his children and happy keeper of the home.
We've been through alot of lifes ups and downs together, the challenges of raising alot of children, economic hardships and our opposite personalities. But with the challenges came the rewards, the rewards are our wonderful children. The economic hardships made us strong and strengthened our faith. Our opposite personalities drew out our sense of humor and made us more balanced and besides where would salt be without pepper? The lyrics to this song are fitting.
Baby aint it something,
How we lasted this long,
You and Me,
Provin Everyone Wrong
Don't think we'll ever,
Get our differences patched,
Don't really matter,
Cuz we're perfectly matched!
I love you, Chuck, happy anniversary.
