"25" Years - Donny & Christi

There once was a very young women (only 18) who met and fell in love with a very handsome young man (he was 23) a return missionary, who was and still is a big flirt. Yes, there is a very long version of this story. So to get to the point, this handsome young man took the very young (but mature) women, (hee hee) by the hand to the temple to be married for time and all eternity. The day was beautiful, the occasion joyous, the moment complete. They were one, forever and ever.

Through the trials of life they had each other to lean on. There were many hardships as well as triumphs. They had their ups and downs, new places to see, and times to learn. Sometimes all they had was each other and at other times maybe said things they wish they hadn’t. This young man was counseled to tell her “you love her” everyday and he did, even if she didn’t deserve to hear such kind words some days.

They grew together, taught each other, loved each other. Even laughed and cried with and at each other. Through the years as time passed by until we come to today. Could it be, really? 25 years ago, you took me by the hand to the temple to be sealed for time and all eternity. Here we are, a little worn from the wear. I love you with all my heart.

Happy Anniversary Donny!

We have a lot more ahead of us, so hold on tight.
