We hit a big milestone: Our 40th Wedding Anniversary

Often a 40th Wedding Anniversary triggers a husband or wife to make the comment “thanks for putting up with me” or something to that effect. Although there is truth to it, spending the rest of your life with another person is the challenge of two people face in compromising, and sometimes struggling, to learn out how to work together to be a “happily married couple.”

Thankfully for Brenda and me, the road has been pretty smooth in retrospect and has had far more positive and happy times than negative and rocky ones. Our focus has always been on “teamwork” and picking up slack for each other. We have helped each other overcome our weaknesses and have tried to enhance each others strengths. I am so bless to have Brenda in my life: God gave me a person (who birthed a couple more!) to live for and prioritize … instead of selfishly living only for myself. As my mother-in-law would proclaim: “Praise the Lord”although as I recall, she did that when Brenda finally settled down. 😊

The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” – Genesis 2:18

Thank you Brenda for 40 years! How about we share forty together?

I’ve even updated our Brenich.com domain (running on load-sharing Raspberry Pi computers) with an updated “40-plus years” together image! 😉
