From Now Until Eternity

Its my favorite link up day! I have lost my blog mojo but I had to drag myself to post as I  love this link up.
As you can see my title is From Now Until Enternity and I guess it is about love.
Back in the dim distant past of 1978 I was looking at my local newspaper. I came across a story about a young sailor in the Royal Navy. He was asking for penpals to write to him to keep him up to date with his home town. I had always had penpals and really loved to write letters. I thought his life sounded exciting and fun, and a million light years away from mine.
So putting pen to paper I wrote my letter. I had to wait but in time a return letter dropped onto the mat. He told me he was 21 and at that time in America on H.M.S Ark Royal. He said he would love to write and that letter was the first of nearly a year of letters.
At the end of the year he came home and asked if he could meet me to say thanks for all the letters. I was very nervous as I had never been on a date and never had a boyfriend.

We got on straight away and within four weeks we were engaged and within 6 months we were married. We had to overcome a great deal as most thought we were far to young (21) and had not known each other long enough. We knew we were right for each other and vowed to stick to each other whatever.

That was a long time ago! In fact this year it will be 35 years and I have no idea where time went. Its not easy to live with one person that long, and there are times when I could kill him lol. He has been a wonderful husband and has always provided for us and our children. We have had a good life and have two wonderful kids as well. I hope we will have many many more anniversaries to come.

Kevin and I today
