A Time Line (40 Years and Counting)

The Players

40 years ago today I married Tom Henning…He was Tommy then. We dated through eleventh grade, twelfth grade, and then, one year after high school we married. We were still 18. Kids. I chose not to go to college, instead I snagged a job at the university. The plan was to save up $ for married life and to get spouse benefits for Tom’s tuition, when by marriage he would lose the tuition break his mother’s employment at Pattee Library offered. We really were still kids. Two years and a few months later we had our first baby boy — Nathan, the prophet.. I had just turned 21. Tom wasn’t yet 21. Kids. 17 months later we had our second baby boy — Aaron, the priest. Kids with 2 kids. 5 years later we had our 3rd little boy — Adam, God’s man. And 6 years after Adam our family was completed with the arrival of David — a king, and a man after God’s own heart.

That’s the immediate family, but there are daughters-in-law, grandkids, and a significant other, and two extended families… Hennings and Bruces, and so many friends who were (are) part of our lives through the years.
