Exciting Day

My husband and I will be celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary tonight with a dinner for our family and close friends. We've been planning this for some time and the day is finally here. We are having the dinner in our church with a group of ladies fixing a delicious meal.
Last night our kids and us set up tables, set the tables and did a little decorating. We put my wedding dress and my miniature bride dress up. My Aunt (who raised me) made both of these dresses. We also put baby pictures of our children on the board.
Where did those 50 year ago? I remember when other people would have their 50th, I would think they were getting rather old. But not any more.
We are very thankful for the many years we have had together and are looking forward to many more, God willing.
