One year ago today my Mom re-married after being single for almost 36 years. And I can honestly say that her husband is one of the kindest men I have ever had the privilege of knowing.
They knew each other in High School -- never dated each other -- and went on to marry other people. Mom divorced, his wife passed away and they reconnected at their school's 75th Anniversary Celebration in 2009. After one date they both knew they had found that special person to spend the rest of their lives with and were married about 7 months later.
So happy first anniversary you two ~ may you have many more!
