My Slice Of Heaven

  I was so happy to see a group of people who love their husbands. I have been happily married for 24 years this June. We were a blind date. He walked into the room that November night and my heart started pounding. my hands were shaking, and my mouth went dry. I had never reacted that way before! What in the world was happening,I wondered. Turns out as I was told later, he told his sister that very night after he got home he was going to marry me. My heart still does a little flip flop when I hear his truck pull in the driveway after work. I love his big hands and kind heart. He is my best friend and he would never judge me or hurt me. I am safe in body, mind and spirit with him. I cherish him. I get so sick of sneers and eye rolls when I don't rag about him. Like there MUST be something wrong with us. We are, of course, not perfect, but what little dirty laudry we have isn't worth sharing just for the sake of making someone elses tragic marriage feel better. I was married before for 5 years to a brutal, jerk, so It's not like I don't care, it's just truth is truth. I'm not being fake or think I'm better than anyone, as I've also been accused of. Guess being happy just makes some people angry. Too bad.

Good for you and God bless you! My husband and I have been married for 3years now and dated for 9 years. I know how blessed I am to have him in my life! He is my rock! Things do get a little tough sometimes but that is to be expected! "Marriage may be made in Heaven but must be maintained here on earth". I truly appreciate this person God has placed in my life and will love him for the rest of my life!
