It has been 16 years for my knight and I as man and wife....mom and dad, husband and wife, spouses and team. Most of all, we are a team come hell or high water as my parents would say.
This time last year was rough, my knight's dad lay in a nursing home weak with pnemonia, hopeless, and alone, 2 days driving distance away. Here several of us had the flu including my knight, who had just come home from helping his parents as cheer leader and helper. I think we still managed to get out on our anniversary, but with so much looming on us, it wasn't very romantic.
This year is much better, the tax refund is in, his father is in a better place with God, we moved his mother here, and our son is now a happily married man as well. What a difference a year makes.
Life is precious and we can never take it for granted.
