Like A Bridge….
Forty-five years ago today I married my best friend! That friendship is the glue that has kept us together and that continues to sustain what we consider to be a wonderful life. Success has many definitions depending on who you ask. A lot of folks might look at us and wonder what we have to be so happy about. True, we are not rich in the economic sense but then we never aspired to be rich, although I have bought a few lottery tickets. Yes, wealth would be nice because we could do much more for our family and others that are less fortunate but you can do a lot of good things even if you aren’t rich.
Fortunes come and go but true love is the most valuable possession, if you can call it a possession, that we have. We have been fortunate to be able to do a lot of things we want to do. We plan to do some traveling over the next few years, hopefully more than just a few, trying out fishing holes that we haven’t found yet and visiting places that we have read about.
We find it hard to believe that it has really been 45 years. The time has literally flown by and each passing year seems to take less and less time to turn into the next one. Mentally we are still 18, full of hopes and dreams, planning the things we want to accomplish. Physically, we get a lot of wake up calls that we are not as young as we once were but that doesn’t deter us from taking on some new project.
We are do-it-yourselfers, from home remodeling to car repairs, to landscaping or pond building. If something perks our interest we will give it a try. I have some tales about those adventures that I may tell you about someday.
Bottom line is that age is not a factor in remaining madly in love. It gets even better with each passing day, year and decade. I think if more folks could be lucky enough to find it, this world would be a much happier place.
Grace and Peace to all, we wish you love!
