Today marks the 41st anniversary of the day Larry proposed to me. We were married a little over two months later. The heady love of youth gave way to the more mature love of two people who had grown together ... and grown up.
The years haven't always been easy. We've suffered through depression, flooded basements, the deaths of loved ones, the inevitable hardships that all of us face. Yet we've endured.
Sometimes, when life throws us curves, all we can do is to hold on and endure, to pray for the Lord's tender mercies until the hard times pass. Through it all, we have clung to each other, to the Lord, to the commitments we made in the temple. And somehow we made it through.
Joy for today: clinging to each other and to the Lord.
