A Love Letter

Dearest Lyle,

Today is Marriage Monday over at Chrysalis... and the assignment is to "write a love letter to my husband." I wasn't going to do it, because I knew it would embarrass you... but since today happens to be the 24th anniversary of our wedding... well, I couldn't just let it pass without writing something, now could I?

I love sharing my life with you. I am so blessed to be married to my best friend. It's hard to realize that it really has been 24 years since we said, "I do." Thank you for having and holding... and loving and cherishing. I never take it for granted... and I'm grateful.

And before I get too mushy, I'll stop.

I love you. Always.

Happy Anniversary! Loved your sweet words to your precious husband.

I think yours is the fourth anniversary being celebrated on Marriage Monday today... (and I thought we were the only couple married in the fall!) VERY Cool!

Thanks for joining us today, Karla.

Blessings, e-Mom :~D

Happy, happy anniversary! As you said, not too mushy of a love letter, but it certainly says your true feelings and expresses your love.

Happy Anniversary! Ours was not on the day of the post but it is this month also. What a testimony...anything over 5 years these days is a miracle in the world's eyes. I'm so thankful that as Christians, we can beat the world's statistics!

Hope you guys had a great celebration!
