A milestone for us, and a reminder to me of how blessed I am

35 years ago Dianne & I said our vows.


A few years later with our first daughter.


And still at it, this time she's driving.


Yup, I married a keeper. 35 years later, she still wheels with me.

It's a day for me to reflect on my life. A strong marriage, 2 married children and 3 grandchildren. 18 years ago we bought a house on a lake that we plan to retire in. We have good jobs, good friends, a great life and thankfully, good health.

6 years ago Dianne was in a severe car accident, 5 broken ribs, a broken pelvis, a dislodged sternum and lots of bruises. It was a scary moment to get the phone call from my firefighter son in law telling me that I had 3 generations (my wife, second daughter and granddaughter) all being coded to the hospital from a car accident. Thankfully they all came home safely.

So here I am, realizing that I am a very fortunate man, and it's all because of my wonderful wife Dianne.

I love you babe. Happy anniversary.

Fantastic for you! I hope to be like my grandparents. Married 74 Years. Grandpa was married at 18 and died at 92, Grandma is still tickin. Seeing how I didn't get married until I was 29, I don't see it happening, but it's a goal.

Congrats

Your wife has aged gracefully, like a 66 stingray and you not so much much like the yj and GMC. Loose and saggy

My parents have been married 62 years. Mom turns 85 Saturday. That's another reason I'm blessed.
