At the end of the long day yesterday (Saturday), Granddad & I were chatting about what a great day it had been. Then, I looked at him & asked "You know what today is, don't you?"
Smiling, he said "Of course I do. My life changed 28 years ago."
September 24, 1983 was the first date of the future "Granny & Granddad". He was in his last year of college, and I was in my 2nd year of college. It was a Saturday night, and he & his family were playing at a local music house. I had seen them locally that summer play at our amusement park, so I looked forward to seeing "him" that night as well. I was pretty nervous about meeting his parents again, and I knew his brother from high school. (You can read more of our 1st date here ). But, as thankful as I am for that first date, I probably more thankful for our 2nd date (which meant I hadn't blown the first date!).
Many changes ... much growth ... and still going strong everyday.
So (although a day late),
~ Happy "Date-iversary", Honey ~
I look forward to seeing what God has in store for our next 28 years!
|August 24th -- my 47th birthday ... 28 years with this guy & it just keeps getting better!|
