Rooster and I married 16 years ago today. August 4, 1997. It was a very hot day. The ride to the Courthouse was tense. I have never seen Rooster nervous. We eloped that Monday morning. A mutual friend and my sister showed up to witness. I didn't expect to see my parents. They did not care to be at our wedding. I could not wait to take his name. I was crying while he said his vows. He said "his unlawfully bedded wife". The judge had to take a minute to compose himself.
We have had our ups and downs. But I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband. He is my best friend and my hero. I thank God every day for this wonderful gift.
People ask us what our secret is. It isn't a secret. We made those vows and intend to keep them.
God Bless and have a wonderful day.
