So what am I learning?

Allen and Lin married June 12, 1993 in SLC temple
As you age there is only a certain amount of energy you can expend each day...how important to spend it on worthwhile priorities...FAMILY certainly rates up there highly but maybe more crucial is leaving a LEGACY of love and caring for others which includes setting a good EXAMPLE in all that you do. 

Leslie & Bert Allen Mar 27, 1964
married in Gatesville, Texas
Loving, forgiving, connecting within realistic frames...as much as possibly. Life is always a CHALLENGE and we can choose what we value most. Our spouse should be right up there developing companionship, love and patience on both sides. Learning to communicate clearly. Having goals and plans for each stage of your life together. My husband and I met soon after our divorces in 1992 and have been married for twenty-one years now this coming June. We both married for the first time in 1964 before we knew each other existed. 

Interestingly enough my hubby's grandson chose to get married unknowingly on the the 51st anniversary of his grandfather's first marriage. That marriage in 1964 ended twenty-eight years later in divorce in 1992 when their grandmother chose another lifestyle alone. DIVORCE is never easy for any reason on all involved and especially so on the children and grandchildren of divorce. We are pleased that this grandson has chosen to MARRY his high school sweetheart and wish them much happiness. More photos to follow after this mini-family reunion.

Very nice, Lin....my granddaughter will marry her high school sweetheart in May, and they have already had six years together. Hopefully there will be many, many more.
