Larry and I are pretty sure that tonight is the 26th anniversary of our first date.
We had been out together a few weeks earlier after a ministry day bringing collected winter clothing to Haitian refugees living in Chicago. We're talking January here, folks!! We had dinner together, then went to hear Luis Palau at our church.
But this was the weekend he chose me as his date to the surprise birthday party for a mutual friend. He was told by the hostess to bring a friend and he brought me!! That was the beginning!! We never looked back, never doubted that we should be together. Ups and downs - sure! But that is what makes the ride. We are still growing, learning, trying.
