A Personal Holiday

Eight years ago today I married my bride in Mt. Prospect, IL. In some ways I cannot believe how fast those years have gone--but at times I find myself looking at her and can't even remember life without her. She's a piece of me now--or I am a piece of her (God help her!).

Happy Anniversary, Marjorie!

    Many wonderful years to you both!

    Ben and I were married in 2000 also - it makes remembering how many years we've been married very easy, doesn't it?!

    My utterly irreformable lapsed papist of a wife and I were also married in 2000 - August 12, which is totally verboten in the OC since it is the Dormition Fast, but I wasn't officially Orthodox then - at a church named for a Polish Jesuit sitting in the middle of soybean fields and just down the road from a Serbian convent.

    Many years!

    Happy Anniversary, Christopher and Marjorie! May God grant you many, many more years.

    My lovely bride and I just celebrated our 21st. When the number gets that high (in 13 years for you two), I recommend writing your post something like this: "I can't believe she's put up with me that long!" :-)

    Oh...you young pups. Mr. Dixie and I celebrated number 25 last October 30, 2007...but we didn't actually have our honeymoon until two weeks ago...and it was great! To be sure...Mr. Dixie is a saint for putting up with me for so long. Then again...I think I helped him cultivate the virtue of patience! ;D

    Congrats, Pastor Hall! A good marriage is always better than one can anticipate...for who can understand such a union until they experience it?

    Chronia polla! for you and the Mrs. and the rest of the family-----R

    God grant you many years! My wife and I just celebrated our 30th. It's proof of how much a woman can put up with...

    And she hasn't come to her senses yet. You are a blessed man.
