I was 26 years old.
I took that picture (on the right) to get it framed four months after the wedding (when I was still 26 years old).... and the lady at the frame shop asked, "Oh, is that your daughter?"
That really happened.
When I said, "No, that is me," she said, "Oh, of course. I didn't look at it closely enough."
(What else could she say?)
As you can tell, I didn't forget that incident...
I went home, and spiffed up.
I wish I could say nothing like that ever happened again, but well, some days I just look older than other days.
Ah, but I have been so blessed with a wonderful marriage, no matter how old I look or feel.
I tell young women to pray for their future husbands, if God has that plan for their lives.
And I tell them emphatically: DON'T SETTLE!!
I'm so glad I didn't settle for just any ole guy out there.
I got the cream of the crop.
And I thank God everyday.
Here's the picture I put on Facebook this morning...
I've gotten a lot of 'likes' on it....
And I'm giving it a huge LOVE!!!!
