Twenty More

Twenty years ago today
A young girl
with butterflies in her stomach
clutched her Daddy's arm
And took a short walk

She never stopped grinning
At what she saw before her....

The bluest eyes
The broadest smile
Excitement
Joy
A thousand hopes and dreams
A home, a family
A life together

...Forever.

The walk
....was down the aisle

The eyes
...were yours

The hopes and dreams
...still grow from year to year

The family
....is ours (and an amazing blessing)

The life together -- tried and true --
...is a gift I would never trade




Today I Pray...

...for my husband,
my very best friend,
the love of my life

the hopes and dreams
the excitement and joy
are as real today as they were
twenty years ago

I am so grateful
that you never gave up on me...
...or on us

...I pray for 20 more years
...and 20 more after that

...always with you by my side

I love you Jeff.
