Celebrating 19 years

Hello fellow bloggers. Where has the summer gone. I have been frantically trying to get things ready for everyone starting the new school year. My husbands school year has already begun, my children's school year starts next week, and mine the week following. I say this because this time of the year is crazy, but 19 years ago when my husband and I were married, this was still part of our summer break. Now our anniversary is part of the beginning of the school year. Seems crazy, we schedule our wedding at this time thinking we could celebrate before starting a new school year. This year my husband had open house on our anniversary. Knowing that he would not be home for dinner, the children and I made him a special dinner and dessert the night before to surprise him. So on our actual anniversary I did not expect him to bring home these beautiful flowers. I was very surprised. The kids asked "why did daddy bring you flowers?", forgetting that it was our actual anniversary. See we already celebrated the night before, so to them it was over. Despite all the craziness, the Lord has blessed us with 19 years and three beautiful children and I pray He bless us with many, many more years.
Have a great day and count your blessings among the craziness of your day.
