Today is our Anniversary! 27 years ago I made the best decision of my life!
As I sit here and think about what had transpired over these years, I am in awe.
There is a phrase I like to use about Tony when people are talking about marriage and so forth-
“Just as the sun rises in the East and sets in the West, Tony Ross is a faithful man.”
It is the plain truth. A few months ago, I was on my balcony watching the sunrise and reflecting on the past two years (this has been the most difficult season of life we have ever walked) and I said to God, “Just as the sun rises in the East and sets in the West, you are a faithful God.” It struck me then, I see God better because of the way my husband loves me. THIS is what marriage was meant to be.
Big romantic gestures, long strings of words expressing his undying love are not his style. He speaks love by his day in and day out small acts of kindness, grace, and faithfulness to me.
There have been those that have said Tony was too laid back for them or too boring. But here’s the thing- when the proverbial sh@# hits the fan- I don’t have to wonder where he is or what he will do. I know- he will be by my side, leading the way, and telling me that it will all be okay. Life is “exciting” enough, I’ll take a Mr. Steady over Mr. Excitement any day.
There are not adequate words to express what he means to me, to describe what 27 years of being one means, but I don’t want this day to go by without telling you how GRATEFUL I am at being Mrs. Tony Ross for 27 years!
