How Many Years???








Happy Anniversary to my sister and her husband!




These two have been married 42 years today.......

They know the meaning of for better or for worse!

Dick was first attracted to Cathy because of her dazzling good looks and charming personality.

Together, they've been through separation during a war, children, a wreck that changed their lives, children's marriages, grandchildren.....whew! That's just the tip of the iceberg.


Even through their many trials, God has richly blessed these two with unconditional love and only an occasional fist fight word taken the wrong way!


So have a happy day and have many more adventures together! :)




Here they are on their 30th anniversary.....

Happy, happy anniversary to both of them. That is so wonderful. I am sure that 42 years has left them both with many memories - both good and bad.

I'm not sure what blogger is up to today, but I don't think the last message went through so will try again.

Congratulations to both of them. That is quite an accomplishment. I am sure that there are a lot of memories made in 42 years - both good and bad. Happy anniversary.

What an inspiring post! Be sure to let them know I send a big CONGRATULATIONS!!! I have #40 coming in about a week so I can surely relate to what "for better, for worse" really means. And you know, she really is beautiful! Maybe the rough times have served to polish her beauty. - Sharon -

I know Keetha! I had a dress just like that one and I wish I still had it, of course, I wouldn't fit INTO it at this time!

Katie and Beau said...

Aw, happy anniversary! Cathy, I will never forget that time you told MG that of all your years together that about one whole year of it was blissful. Her jaw dropped open and she wondered how you stayed together through 39 years of non-bliss!!! How naive we are!

P.S. I think Nancy put that 30 year photo up just so I would make a comment about the outfit. I'm going to resist the temptation even though I do have a comment!!! Miss ya.

Cathy said...

Oh, my goodness!!! I just got a chance to look at your blog tonight...thank you and all your blogging friends for their good wishes. I cannot believe how awful I looked in that 30th pix. Katie, you should have been around to tell me. And, really, out of the 42 years, I am sure at least 10 years were blissful.....you know, a day here, a week there, etc........I can say that after all these years that we do still like each other most days!! It's a little stressful now, but this too shall pass!
