The flowers just keep comin...

I just love getting flowers!! These are light-yellow roses, and I got them from Craig for our 10th wedding anniversary, which was last Friday, the 15th. I never thought I'd get married again, let alone be with the same person for 10 years! Actually 11 years, if you count the first year of living together. Even though I'd already known Craig for 3 years before we got together, I had never pictured myself being married to him. We had mutual friends, and we always took notice of each other when one of us would arrive at a party. I watched him go through hard times and ex-girlfriends, just as he had watched me go through tough times and seen me kick a few guys to the curb. Sometimes we would go yard-selling together, and he would give me rides to work here and there. He even rescued me one Christmas Eve when my son was gone visiting his Dad in Texas, and I was completely alone. Eventually, once I got my head out of my "you know what," it finally hit me that Craig was a good guy. James (my son) got along with him too, which was very important to me. So, once we were both single at the same time, we started dating. One thing led to another...and look at us now, married for 10 years. Funny how God puts people together at the right time. :D
