43 years ago my high school sweetheart and I said, "I do". "For better, for worse, in sickness and in health, for richer, for poorer....". We've seen all that and could have added a few more. ;-)
The road has not always been smooth but the destination has been so worth the ride. We can truly say we love each other more now. Our love is sweeter because we've weathered the trials...together. Sometimes hanging on by our fingertips, but hanging on.
They say marriage is a marathon, not a sprint. Having run a half marathon, I can attest to that....there is the initial euphoria of the start, the exhaustion, frustration and pain of the hills, brief downhill sprints, the fear of not being able to finish, then, you catch your second wind and the exultation at the prospect of the finish line looms...
So to the love of my life, I say, thank you for loving me...at my best and at my worst.
The card and flowers he picked out and arranged himself. We have a date for next week when my pain and his busy schedule allows us time for a proper celebration. I can't wait!
I want to include you too....so for hanging in there while I've been recuperating and catching up, I have a present for you! How about a $25 gift certificate to Sparkle N Sprinkle? Now that's your choice of stamps, glitter, embossing powder, cut files....all in one cool place!Here's all you have to do...since this is the season of love, leave me a comment telling me who you love and why. If you have a blog...pass the word on...if not, that's ok too. I will draw a winner on Tuesday, January 31st.
