My 10-Year Anniversary: Reflections

What does 10 years of marriage mean?  To me, it is a reflection of 10 years gone by, and foresight of the next 10 years .   

My husband and I first met at work 15 years ago, when we had both just started new jobs.  I remember his smile, his friendliness.  He was such a young, fresh face, glad for his chance at a new career.  I felt the same way: my first real job! 

He came over to my desk on lunch hour to introduce himself, which was a big gesture for him.  He brought me over a submarine sandwich for lunch--without even asking--which I thought was generous.  We began to take short walks together outside during our breaks and started a friendship. 

He looked so young, that I thought I a relationship would not be possible.  I was wrong: he was only one year my junior.
That was just the start of our relationship.  Little did I know at the time, that I would take a romantic trip with this young man, buy a house with him, get engaged, then married, and have 5 wonderful children together.

After 10 years of marriage to my husband, he is just as friendly, smiling and generous as the day I first met him.  What will the next 10 years hold if the first years are any indication?  Foresight tells me more friendship, smiles and generosity!  Happy Anniversary.
