Suddenly, there was a loud bang and our car started swerving crazily. My "knight in shining armor" carefully guided our errant steed to the side of the road and got out to check the problem. Yep, we had a flat tire. This new bride watched as Jim deftly jacked up the car and changed the tire. As I stood there observing, that's when I uttered those loving words for the first time, "I'm sure glad I'm not on this honeymoon by myself, or I'd be changing that tire!"
That phrase has become our battle cry as we enter into hard situations, new adventures and uncertainty together, "I'm sure glad I'm not on this honeymoon by myself!"
A couple of days ago, as I was going through a drawer to get it ready for moving, I found this card that I had given Jim on one of our first anniversaries.
|Notice, the little old lady even has red hair!!|
So, let me share some of those memories with you through pictures.
|The happy couple 25 years ago!|
|Tired, but happy, on the way to our honeymoon!|
|The happy couple 25 years later, a bit older, but still happy neither of us are on this honeymoon by ourselves!|
So, here I am again, telling Jim, "I am so glad I am not on this honeymoon by myself!"
