...I became his bride.
And sometimes he still calls me that.
Since that day, there have been four beautiful babies, plus three dogs, a rabbit, about 600 rodents (most of which were actually in cages), two fish tanks, and one very long-living goldfish.
There have been tight times and flush times. There have been fights and make-ups. There has been snot, barf and lots of dirty diapers.
There has been lots of gray hairs, lots and lots of prayers, and lots and lots and lots of dirty laundry (thankfully the literal kind, not the figurative kind).
And if someone had allowed me to see the future on that day 25 years ago, would I have still walked down that aisle in my very expensive, white lace, seed-pearl crusted dress?
I can't say for sure. Maybe I would have hightailed it for the convent wall (not likely, but it sounds good now).
I, for one, am glad I couldn't see the future. It surely would have spoiled the fun.
Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart.
