Today or this evening to be exact marks our 38th wedding anniversary. It's been a long road and not all roses. But that is life. We have learned to work through problems together and to support each other throughout this life. We have raised three beautiful daughters. We now have four grandchildren, two boys, and two girls and two step-grandchildren, 2 additional boys. Our family is complete, although we would welcome more little ones into the fold. Babies are blessings from God. I'm looking forward to the next ten years and new journeys. My husband will be retiring at the end of January if all goes as planned and we both want to do a bit of traveling. I"m ready for that. To top it all off, my husband even remembered the big day this morning after waking up. This is a good start to the day since he usually is the one to forget. One year we both forgot and didn't realize it until the following week. That was pretty funny. Photo: Pixaby, public domain

Oh, I'm used to it now. Mine has a mental block and for some reason thinks we got married in September so we are always joking about that.

@kareng I know I am late in wishing you a Happy Belated Anniversary. 38 years is a long time. I am happy for you. Marriage is not always full of roses all the time but you two hung in there and worked on things together. That is so great.

Wow congratulations! 38 years are easily said, but to fulfill them requires a whole art. Every day live with love and respect and not decline over the years, only true love survives so much.

Congratulations and wishing you many more years of love. One of my favorite singers sang a love some called the Anniversary Waltz and even though ti was for couples during WW II I don't think it has aged at all.
Anniversary Waltz - VERA LYNN (album "for all World War II Sweethearts")

I did all the shopping while the kids were growing up. He has always worked shift work, extra duty, etc. When he started tagging along with me, it was pure sticker shock on the prices.
