52nd Wedding Anniversary

I know I won't have time tomorrow to post about our 52nd Wedding anniversary.  I can hardly believe that many years have come and gone.  But we thank the Lord that He has given us so many years together. 
Someone ask us the other day, "How did you do it?"  That question sort of muddled my mind.  We just thought when you get married ~ you stayed married.  Divorce was never an option.  Separation was never an option.
When you get married you are one.  We have reached 52 years because we thought that was what we were supposed to do, the Lord willing.  He was willing and we thank Him.

I don't suppose we are going to do anything big.  I want to go and see our great grandchildren about an hour and half from here.  And stop at a couple stores, of course.  Then we will come back this way and stop and eat at my husband's favorite spot.  Catfish Charlie's!  They have more than just seafood, but are famous for their seafood specialty's. 

Sunday will really be our Anniversary, but Sunday's are always extra busy.  So we will take the Saturday to just be together and do what we want and enjoy.  Today I have to get several things done that I usually do on
Saturday.  We are just looking forward to 6o years together, Lord willing.  But for now, we will just enjoy
52.  No, we are not old!  Just slowing down and enjoying life!

Have a blessed week end!

                                                    Always,  Aliene

Happy Anniversary, Aliene. 52 years is quite an accomplishment in this day and age! I had a conversation with my 11 year old yesterday about marriage and how for her dad and I, divorce is not an option. We just work through the hard times. Anyway, congratulations!

Thanks for coming to my blog, Aliene. What a pretty name you have! Once of my favorites, although you don't hear it much.

Your words are so true. We have been married 40 years. Congratulations on your 52! You are right -- we were never expected to do anything, big -- staying together is something you did!
