Happy Anniversary Greg

Greg and I were married 29 years ago today.  The years have gone by so quickly. It seems like only yesterday we were in Vail, Colorado with our families for that special day.  We said our vows in a small chapel in the village.  We celebrated at The Lodge. Greg had searched high and low for the perfect song to play for me. He choose Lou Rawls "Forever I Do".  I cry every time I hear that song and ...remember.

After 29 years, I have a new song for Greg.  I love the lyrics to Steven Curtis Chapman's "I Will Be Here".

Greg and I have had our ups and downs as most couples will understand (if they're honest).  But we've hung in there with each other.  I love how far we've come in understanding one another.  That really is a life long commitment.  I recall the vows we exchanged in that chapel ...'for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish 'till death do us part'.

How thankful I am that Greg understands me better today than when we first began. He makes me breakfast in bed.  He rubs my back after a long day at work.  He has our home prepared with lighting and music for when I get home.  So here's my song ...
