They said we'd never make it....The photo above is of me and my husband not long after we met. I was twenty seven and he was just thirty nine. My husband and I met in the age of AOL. Yes, we met in an AOL chat room. Remember those? We both hung out in a local chat room with lots of other people from the area and most 'chat room couples' didn't make it. They were nothing more than flings.
My husband and I were different. We had both been married before, we had both done the 'fling thing'. We were looking for true love, stability, security, honesty, faithfulness. Of course everyone we knew in that chat room both online and offline said it wouldn't last that we'd be like everyone else. Over in three weeks.
Well I am so blessed and happy to say that as of today it's been twenty three years of being together, twenty two years of being married AND we married each other TWICE! Once outside the church in 1998 and then again inside the church in 2014. And you know what? We'd marry each other all over again!.

So much for not making it. Happy 22nd Anniversary honey. I love you more today than I did yesterday.
