Today Bill and I celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary. I am a lucky girl.
When I was young I was always on the "lookout" for Mr. Right. (sounds kind of desperate, doesn't it?)
I had three criteria. He had to be Catholic, Pro-Life, and go to church. In fact, whenever my friends and I were out and they saw me talking to a boy they would joke and ask him those three questions so no one's time would be wasted.
I clearly remember there were times when I was young and dating that I wished the relationship would work out. When it didn't I couldn't understand why. When I met Bill it finally became clear to me. God was just answering my prayer in His own time.
Are you familiar with the song "If" by the group "Bread"? It is one of my all time favorite songs and there is a line in there that goes like this.
"If a man could be two places at one time I'd be with you....tomorrow and today; beside you all the way."
I am teary as I write that line because even though Bill didn't write those words, he lives them and makes me feel special every day.
I love you my Love! Happy Anniversary. You have made all my dreams come true.
