To my Mike.... Happy Anniversary

I had a class tonight at the store, so Mike and I celebrated our Anniversary last nite. 12-12-98 we were married, 5 o'clock in the afternoon, surrounded with friends and family in our home church, River City. I am sure Mike and I would tell very different stories of the day and I won't bore you with the details, but I found a few quotes that make sense for today...

I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance,A church filled with family and friends.I asked him what kind of a wedding he wished for,He said one that would make me his wife.~Author Unknown

You don't marry someone you can live with - you marry the person who you cannot live without.-- Author Unknown

Marriage is our last, best chance to grow up.

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.

Happy marriages begin when we marry the ones we love, and they blossom when we love the ones we marry.

"A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity. The order varies for any given year."

A successful married life requires falling in love many times, but always with the same person.

Marriage is work, its not easy and if people claim that it is, they are simply telling a story.. Our lives are filled with unexpected twists and turns, and so many blessings, it would take pages to list.

For tonight, I would do it all again, I would stand before God and everyone around us and say "I do, I will and yes... I love you" I would chose Mike and I would hope he would chose me.

I am so glad to have the name Mrs. Ottmar. 9 years and several more to go!

Happy Anniversary my Michael.
