We had a party for my daughter yesterday to celebrate her 9th birthday and a great time was had by all. Yesterday was also my 12th wedding anniversary and my wife bought me an awesome Ryobi cordless drill, saw, flashlight, vacuum set. I bought her the navigation system upgrade for her Acura so we each bought something for each other that was actually needed and practical. I also gave her a nice bouquet of flowers from the Pike Place Market flower shop.
It is amazing to think we met and got married in 17 days just over 12 years ago. Our story is quite incredible, but the key to the whole thing was that Jesus was at the center of our lives so we were comfortable in getting married that quickly after meeting. Now, if one of my 3 daughters tries to pull this stunt then that is another thing. (Just kidding, of course) I am confident my daughter’s will make the right decisions when the time comes as they are quite confident and secure in their faith and morals.
