Today we were married 34 years!

Friday, October 28, 2011

Sometimes it feels like just yesterday two kids were getting married.It was the year Elvis died.It was the year my mother and aunt were attacked with a butcher knife by a crazed man.It was the year my precious uncle drowned and my grams was diagnosed with cancer!We looked and acted like kids,but we tied the knot for our daughters sake.The truth was we loved each other deeply as friends.It wasnt until we were married that we realized we couldnt be apart.It was'nt cool to marry outside our race.We were treated like crap by alot of whites and blacks but we stood our ground.We went to Germany and were treated like family by the locals.We went on to have 4 daughters,8 grands,two ex son-in-laws.We have seen them graduate,get married,try drugs/alcohol/go to jail and we are still together.The world is still spinning.We have both become Grouches,set in our ways but,we have mutual love and affection for each other.We talk and laugh everyday,hold hands,hug,and give a kiss before leaving each other for the day.He has started helping in the house quite alot lately,giving soothing backrubs,and taking out the trash.He knows how to be a craphead but also apologizes when he is....LOL....Today like every year he bought me beautiful roses!He took our daughter to school because I felt green around the gills from a stomach virus...i slept until 10:00am...we had a nice lunch and shopped together.Laughed at the people going by and splurged on ice cream.All these things I mention are better than any material gift....He gives these things to me all year and says...I LOVE YOU ten times a day everyday(when he's not being an ASS)HAHAHA!!!I would do it all over again.... emoticonSUSAN

    This is a rock solid, happy marriage. When you remember the good things, get over the occasional desire to kill him in his sleep and really appreciate the shared past, marriage is miraculous. I am happy for you and I celebrate your love and its endurance.

    That's the's not good enough to find the person you can live with, you must find the one that you can't live without. Marriage has never been a 50/50 proposition....if it's not 100/100, it will never last.
