My Husband Rocks!

Katy Lin over at The great adventure
came up with a marvelous Friday theme-My husband rocks.
She is a newlywed and really is committed to honoring her marriage. When I read her post last week, I decided to participate as well.

I consider myself a newlywed also. October 10th we will celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. Yay! My oldest son introduced us (yes, he was playing match maker). Ray was Jeff and Dorothy's neighbor. In fact he knew Jayde from the time she was born. My youngest son would go over and visit his brother so he knew Ray as well. Talk about fate!

My husband rocks for many reasons. He gives unconditional love not only to me but my children. He thinks of them as he would his own. He adores our granddaughters. He makes me laugh, he is there for me when I need to cry. He is supportive of whatever I would like to do. I think he brings the best out of me.
He also has the ability to bring the best out of others.

I still pinch myself sometimes- love at almost 50! I am living proof that miracles occur.

What a perfectly sweet story! I am so happy for you!! It's even more interesting because my mom had the same experience... she met her hubby (of 5 years this past August) through a friend of my brother (her son). She is happily married, and I am very thankful that she found such sweet love later in life (she's sixty-one.)

Thanks for sharing your story and sweet photo with us.
