37 Years Ago
It's been 37 years. More ups than downs. More smiles than frowns. Back then we joked that we got married between the soybeans and the hay.
Not "between" the two fields. But "between" on the farming calendar. Between the soybean harvest and hay season, which means the hay gets cut and baled. (For the record, soybeans are no longer on our farm calendar.) Yes. We really did chose this date because it worked with the farm life.
And right on cue, Daddy-O finished this year's hay yesterday. Just in time for the two of us to spend time celebrating today.
So, Daddy-O...my husband, my partner, my helper, my cheerleader, my encourager, the love of my life...let me say thank you for 37 years. We're good together, aren't we?
