Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for my husband John. Here is a recent picture of him with our daughter at a wedding.It is our 40th wedding anniversary on July 5th and I am thankful to have such a good man to have shared those years with. When we said our vows" for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health" we had no idea how true those words would be in our lives. There have indeed been times when we have experienced rich poor sickness and health, but thanks to a loving God we have weathered the storms and can celebrate 40 years of our marriage.
Thank you John for all the ways you've been there for me, supported me, provided for me and loved me and our children.
So today I am thankful for my husband and 40 years of marriage. We are going away for a few days to celebrate. Have a happy July 4th!
What are you thankful for today?

  14. Happy anniversary and may you have many more blissful years together! My husband and I will celebrate 36 years of marriage this year...the time has flown by so quickly. We've endured much sickness and have always been more on the poor side than the rich side, financially. But in other ways, we are blessed beyond measure. May it always be so for you, too.

    Hugs,

  35. Happy Anniversary, Rhondi!! We celebrated our 40th last June--and we have been down the richer, poorer, good and bad health path, too. It's a test, isn't it? Congrats on so many years together and I wish your many, many more!!

    Hope you had a great getaway and a happy 4th!! Dana

  37. Congratulations on your anniversary. You should be proud of yourselves....marriages usually don't last that long these days. We have been married 32 years and have also had richer/poorer, sickness/health days.
