Time is a very strange phenomenon. . . . minutes, hours, days, weeks,and and even months can just drag on and on, especially when you are ill or sitting in the dentist’s chair. I remember telling my students that the passage of time in school compared to the passage of time during vacations is one of the mysteries of life. So it is for me. . . . the 50 years from August 20,1966 to August, 20 2016 seems just to have been a blink of an eye for me.
I fell in love with David when I was 19. He was incredibly funny and the smartest person I had ever met. I am so grateful for the two amazing children, Katherine and Christian who were born of our union. They have given us such joy every day of their lives.
David has shown me places and taken me to parts of the world that a girl from Staunton, Virginia could never even imagined. I love his adventuring spirit and constant striving to learn and his love of travel!
This picture was taken at the end of one of the Indian spectacular 7 days of wedding celebration in 2015. The students encouraged the kiss!
Through all these years, I have not always liked David very much but I imagine he would say the same about me. Such is life together with two very different people. We stood before God and our families and took a vow which we have taken seriously during all this life together.
But there has not been a single moment of the 50 years that I have not loved him!
