On This Day 24 Years Ago
I Fell ‘in Love’ With This Boy. We were so young (21) and stupid. Yes, I said we were stupid. We had no idea what marriage truly was, other than playing house.
So after we were married, life began to happen. It started happening in chunks and most of it was not very fun. We gained weight, we had zero money, we had one car, we were both consumed with school, football, and work. Day by day, we just went through the motions.
Now, I discovered what TRUE LOVE really meant. We have walked through many fires that have tested us. It has tested our marriage and our faith. Our faith in each other and in Jesus, at times. Through the money problems, addictions, pregnancies, disdain for one another, maggots in roast (yes, I said that), unexpected and expected deaths, and divorce threats, we have held on to each other. More importantly, we have held onto Jesus.
