Grow Old along with Me... the Best is yet to Be...
So, Twenty-five years ago today, Sergio and I made the big commitment.
25 years... that is half my life! I have been with him longer than without him. I have legally been a Gonzalez longer than a Meyer.
I have been wanting to share "the story" for quite a while, as to how we "meet". It is an interesting one that isn't one many could imagine for me. But, that will have to wait.. (tee hee~ sorry, but to do it justice I need more than a few minutes to tell and today I just do not have the time). I promise with the coming of two weeks off for Christmas break, I will make the time and post it soon.
For today, there is no big celebration. Hubby is just outside of town in meetings. I am getting ready myself to hustle into work. We barely saw each other this morning and I will be leaving before he arrives. We knew getting married around Christmas may be difficult to "celebrate" as most do for Anniversaries, however we are not like most people. I don't need a party to show our love. Showing our love by gifts and parties isn't our style. Rather, showing it to those closest to us, in how we have survived the storms, how we stand by each other, and in how we live day by day.
I admit, sometimes when I see friends made a big fuss... I may feel a tug..maybe even some jealousy. But, then again, if I wanted to be fussed over, I would have picked a different man to marry! My Hubby is not a showy person. I know he loves me, I know he believes in our marriage. We took it seriously 25 years ago and still hold those vows close to our hearts.
I look around, and see many marriages that have failed. I think it takes so much to keep a marriage strong. I may seem lucky, but it has been a lot of hard work. It hasn't exactly been a bed of roses every day. There have been moments where Sergio or myself thought about throwing in the towel. But we didn't. We worked through the tough times.
I have been Blessed. But because of a lot of work, love and prayers.
and by the way... I still get GIDDY when I see my Hubby♥
