I just celebrated my 25th wedding anniversary with my husband by going away together without our kids for six days!!! I felt quite melancholy about the whole thing. We married way to young at age 20, not knowing who we were to become and from that we've done a lot of growing together, not always gracefully, often we felt like two ships headed in different directions but we are anchored to one another and I know that won't change.
We created four amazing children together after being told it would never happen. We worked side by side to build two houses together with our own hands which was quite a definining experience and we have ploughed through some mighty tough times that have broken other marriages.
We have done our best to love and honour one another and our vows. I know I can count on my husband to have my back. Even though we are so different in so many ways, we support one another. He knows me better than anyone, knows my sorrows, my joys, my fears and my deepest desires of the heart.
