Sweetest Day

My husband and I met 19 years ago this coming Tuesday, Oct. 20. That year it was a Saturday. I later learned that it had been "Sweetest Day" and I thought it was amazingly "sweet" that this is the date we would remember as the day we met. :) My curriosity drove me to learn the history behind this holiday I had never even heard of before, and I found it was rooted in the desire to show encouragement to orphans and shut-ins, both groups near and dear to my heart. There are probably better links out there, but here's one I could quickly find this morning:

Rick, thank you for investing the past 19 years of your life into mine. I love you always!
