Today we are celebrating 42 years of marriage. We plan to go to Farm to Fork for a nice anniversary dinner and we will thank God for His many blessings to us over the years.
Back in 1974, I had a date with Marvin. We were fixed up by my nursing school friend, Jenny. I thought we had a good time but he did not call me back so I wrote him off! I went about my business until I received a call from him in February 1975. I remember the date because I was in OBGYN rotation at Ga Baptist and my patient had just given birth to triplets. That was rare back then before the techno twins, triplets etc. I was in a good mood so when he asked me out, I gave him a second chance. :) We dated for six months, he asked me to marry him and we were engaged for a year while I finished nursing school.
I sure am glad I believe in second chances!!
