This story happened years ago, but my love for my husband remains strong and true. Today we celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. 40 years of true love! I love to remember this day when my young husband expressed his love for me in a memorable way. Here it is:
I walked out the front door to take Dawn to school, and etched on the sidewalk in chalk, Jim had lovingly written, JNW loves KTW in the center of a huge heart with an arrow through it. Well it just sent me into orbit and back again. What a neat surprise!
As I looked closer, I noticed the chalk was left on the sidewalk as if waiting for some response. I picked it up and wrote DITTO, dotting the “I” with a heart, and put an exclamation point on the end.
Jim, thank you for 40 years! Thank you for all the times you have supported me and thank you for the encouragement I needed to be ME! Because of you my faith in God is deeper and stronger than it would have been alone! I was lonely before YOU! Now I am the happiest woman I know! I love you forever! Karen
