dog-years and anniversaries

22 He who finds a wife finds what is good
and receives favor from the Lord.  -Proverbs 18:22  (NIV)

The 13th of January, 2001 I married the love of my life.   Into our marriage she brought three pre-teen boys and I brought – two dogs.   Into the crucible of testing by fire,  we walked in with a grain of experience I thought.  We both began lives that January differently than we each had begun a decade earlier married to other people. Whether is was learning to live with each other, finding roles and boundaries as a family of five plus (plus being two cats, three dogs and a freedom-finding cockatiel),  or  lessons in child-to-young-adult rearing, we loved, we suffered, and we matured.  Through faith, perseverance, and committing to each other  the dogs thrived in a happy home.  And we did too.
