Today seemed to be “business as usual.” I was up early, taking care of this and that. A few letters to mail, a few emails to respond to, a few checks to write, essays to mark, a financial report, a team itinerary, a staff meeting. . . . Around noon, Ibrahim asked me, “Did you actually forget our anniversary?” I was dumbfounded. Ooooh my! Yes, I did forget. A very senior senior-moment.
I thank God for 32 years of marriage with an amazing man who has been my best friend, inspiration, encourager, pastor, co-worker, advisor, listening ear, and much, much more. He has pushed me beyond the comfort zone many times, always insisting, “Yes, you can.”
Could God grant us 32 more wonderful years? That would be awesome!
