One year ago today my family grew. My daughter got married and I gained a son. It sure doesn’t seem like a year since that great day. So many things have happened to us in the past year. Today, however, is a day to celebrate the one year anniversary of my kids marriage.
They did get married young only 20 and 19, but they are showing signs of maturity. Their marriage is happy and their commitment to one another is very strong. I am proud of my kids because they both believe that a marriage is meant to last forever. They have promised to work daily to see that their marriage remains strong and loving.
My kids are living with me for the last time before they move out in August for my son to finish college. They will be moving back to Vincennes for a year and then after that they will move to whatever college my boy decides to attend to finish his college career. Since he is going all the way to his doctorate, this will take many years. I will miss them when they leave, but I am truly enjoying them now. Especially since I am home on medical leave and doing my work from home.
In one week we will be going on a family vacation. We are driving five hours to visit my mother’s side of the family. We will be staying in a cabin in the woods. We are looking forward to the leisure time and getting to see the family. I am blessed to have two great kids. I plan on enjoying every minute with them I can.
