Happy Anniversary

Here we are again, another anniversary.
I thank the Lord for another year of life, another year of being with my family and another year with my husband!
Today, about 2:00 pm, Ron turned to me and kissed me and said, "33 years ago right now we were getting married"!
That was very unusual for him to turn and kiss me in public. And it was really funny because we did not get married at 2:00 pm. I think our wedding was at 7:00 or something. When we get home, I will be looking in our wedding book to see what time we were married.
But it was still sweet! And of course I had to correct him! Why after 33 years do I feel the need to correct him?
Why indeed! Some things never change. I remember telling him, within minutes of being declared Mr and Mrs Ron Dowler, well I told him something that I don't remember, but I do remember the tone of my voice. It was not the loving voice that a new bride should speak with.
We had been discussing, kind of mocking the "Duggars" for kissing all the time on national TV, maybe that's where that kiss came from. Anyway, I liked it.
So this year, number 33, I declare I am going to speak with a loving voice(most of the time), and I am going to turn and kiss my husband, in public!
I hope our kids are not too embrassed!

I am so thankful to have parents that are still married and love each other after 33 years! The Duggars do kiss alot, especially Josh and Anna, but I think that is because they waited until they were married to kiss.

Donna, what a sweet anniversary kiss and so surprising of Ronnie. Yes...we were married a 7pm. Our double wedding was special, unusual, and just plain fun. Not only was I marrying Jim, but my best friend Donna was marrying Jim's best friend Ronnie. Thank you for sharing your wedding day with us. It was one of the best days of my life!

I will also try to adopt a loving tone in my voice when I correct my husband....haha...

Happy Anniversary to us all!
