all these days

Today is our 32nd wedding anniversary..here I am showing off my engagement ring to my family. They are no longer skeptical about the match. Jimmy told me he bought the ring earlier in the fall and kept unwrapping it to show his sisters. I found it tied with a ribbon around the neck of a little plastic turtle in the bottom of my Christmas stocking. I have been bending his ear for all these years and he remembers every thing I say. And he makes me laugh every day. With apologies to the unknown author, this, from the card he gave me this morning. "The man who is deeply in love with his wife is a man who has all he could want in this life"

congadulations! it takes work to keep a marriage going steady and strong. a constant give and take, ying and yang...i was married for 35 years before he passed. even thou i am happy with mark now, i miss the unspoken closeness that 35 years brings. may you have many many more years together.
