Can you believe I am old enough to have been married for 15 years?
Me neither! *wink*
Fifteen years ago I married my Sailor and became a Navy Wife. Did I think for a second we would be in Japan 15 years later? No chance! I had no idea what life would bring, I just knew who I wanted to spend my eternity with.
It hasn't been easy. The Navy makes it hard (like not being together on our 15th anniversary), but I also think it has all made us stronger and more dedicated to each other. It's true what they say, absence DOES make the heart grow fonder. I think out of our 15 anniversaries, we have spent 10 together. It's funny, because last year we didn't really make plans for our anniversary and Hubby apologized. I told him- that's ok, we will do something big NEXT year. Here we are, and he is on a big steel box out in the big blue ocean somewhere. Maybe that was a lesson to us to grab the moments while we can.
I woke up to a really sweet email from him, wishing me happy anniversary. Sometimes when I think he doesn't have a romantic bone in his body, he surprises me. As for next year, who knows if he will be home? But you know what? That is ok, I still feel loved, and he knows I love him. That is what counts.
I had to look this up on YouTube, it has been in my head all day. It totally shows my age, but I don't care, I love this song!
