30 Years and All is Well!

 It is our 30th Anniversary today!

We always said that we would go to Hawaii for our 30th Anniversary.
But we have ended up in a much better place… Perú!
  We have never been this happy.

When you have a partner at your side,
That you love and respect …
and he knows all your flaws and loves you anyway.
Then no matter where you are …
Or what you are doing…
Life is glorious and meaningful.

 A great marriage is not when the 'perfect couple' comes together.

It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences…
and they serve God
and they serve each other.

The remedy for most marital stress is not in divorce.
It is in repentance and forgiveness,
in sincere expressions of charity and service.

It is not in separation.
It is in simple integrity that leads a man and a woman
to square up their shoulders
and meet their obligations.
It is found in the Golden Rule,
a time-honored principle
that should be a priority in the marriage.
Hawaii can wait...  Peru is where we are supposed to be
right now.  Thank you Heavenly Father for 
letting us have this opportunity of a life time.

I love you President Turk
with all my heart!
