"This illness is to fatigue,
what a match is to a nuclear bomb.
It's an absurd mischaracterization!"

24 years

Today is our 24th Wedding Anniversary. (Don't we look young in this picture???)

24 years ago - we were just arriving at a little cabin in Inverness, CA (on the coast) and Bill was coming down with a very bad cold!

Tonight.... Bill is coming down with a cold!

How many times has this happened on our Anniversary? It's happened so many times it's almost funny! I guess that's what we get for getting married in February! Thankfully, we've had cold-free anniversaries so I know it's not psychosomatic - hee hee.

What an amazing thing to look back at life and think of having spent 24 years growing up together. We're not thrilled about the health challenges the past 5 and half years have brought, but we're thankful to God for bringing us through them - still strong in our love and commitment to one another!

Just wanted to share!
