47th wedding anniversary -oh my--Dec. 9th

Sunday, December 08, 2019

Lots of past memories are going through my head--47 years of memories--wow!

We were married 9 years before our daughter was born. My family had given up on me. They were kind of surprised. And it is hard for me to believe her age! Oh my. Where did those years go?

Hubby is in a nearby nursing home. I have not seen him in a few days due to my sinusitis. I will bring him a piece of his favorite fruitcake. A small piece each time I visit --till the 6 lbs are gone! It's a tradition.

Honestly, I don't have much energy for celebrating. I guess I should take him some wine, too. We can have a little party.

I just looked this up: "The suggested gift theme for a 47th anniversary is gardens and plants, and nothing could be a better analogy for marriage — especially one that has thrived for almost five decades! After all, both require plenty of care and nurturing."
