Today is a special day. Not only is it my dear hubby’s birthday, but it is also our ten-year wedding anniversary! Ten years of glorious wedded bliss 🙂 I know that sounds like it could be a cliche` but for us, it’s the real thing. Glorious wedded bliss. I can count the arguments we’ve had on one hand — honestly. I am one lucky woman, to be spending her “later years” with such a kind and understanding man… someone who is so thoughtful and loving and willing to give. It’s actually a great cycle of happiness we have — he is loving and caring and thoughtful, I want to be the same to him, and he’s pleased that I am loving and caring and thoughtful, and he continues on being loving and caring and thoughtful….. You get the picture.
Way-back-when I knew I had a “winner” when a very simple event happened. We were on a weekend getaway and leaving the hotel to do some sightseeing. About a mile away from the hotel I realized I’d forgotten an essential – my camera. For a few blocks I pondered if I should even mention my oversight, fearing how he might react. Finally I decided that I wanted the camera bad enough to face an outburst (this was unfortunately what I was used to in my ‘former life’). I gently said… “you know sweetie, I’ve forgotten the camera back at the hotel….” and his reply was, “Okay, no problem, we’ll just pop back there and grab it”! I was seriously stunned. I’d made a silly oversight by forgetting the camera, and HE wasn’t ticked off! To me, that said volumes about his personality – and it was all good. I thank God for my wonderful husband and feel like we are as well suited as any two people can be. I pray for many more years with this special guy, before we all head up to Heaven.
I love you sweetie – more every day!
