Good Morning, fellow Sparkies!
Anniversary # 2
17 years ago today, DH & I tied the knot at City Hall on a rainy Spring morning. We were surrounded by a handful of our friends & family. I don't think either of us could imagine the many twists & turns our years together would bring. Many highs & lows, challenges & victories have brought us to this point , but I wouldn't change a thing.
Being together this long doesn't make things easier; rather, it means we've gotten better!
Sure we fuss & fight, like everyone else. There were a few moments when things weren't looking good for us. But, we have learned to communicate better, have patience, understanding, & practice forgiveness. This is our commitment to each other.
DH & I exchanged cards this AM as we usually do on our anniversaries. His read:
"Love isn't in the FALLING. It's in the STAYING." Of course I burst into tears before I could even read the rest of the card. Along with his poignant greetings, they ( my daughter & DH) presented me with a lovely spring bouquet & a brand NEW Schwinn Cruiser bike!
So incredibly amazing of them! Today, before it gets too hot, we are going to take out our bikes for a spin. It's been 30 years since I rode a bike...I'm sure I'll feel like a kid again. Oh, the memories our daughter will have & another fun way to get exercise in! :)
I am extremely grateful to the Good Lord for blessing me with such a wonderful family of my own. PTL!
So, to my DH: Here's to many more happy, healthy, fun, adventurous years ahead! Happy 17th Anniversary!
Cheers & Happy Memorial Day SP,
