Tomorrow is our anniversary. We'll be gone a couple days - to Savannah.
We hope it will be a relaxing and fun trip!
We have never done a lot of traveling ; very few trips just for us.
:) When we got married in 1961, we remember with amazement that he had just $15.00 in his pocket to go on 'til his next payday! :) And I, of course, had no money at all! But it was near his next payday- so- not to worry! We never had a honeymoon trip at all! Nor a wedding - except at the courthouse-lol- with no one there except the 2 of us and the justice of the peace who performed the service for us! :) She had to call in a clerk from the outer office to be a witness!
We don't even have a picture of our wedding day!
(That I do regret... being the photo collector that I am!...What! You hadn't noticed!! :) )
:) I guess I am going into all of this just to show that it's not the fancy, expensive weddings or elaborate honeymoon trips that are important. What's important is the love and commitment that has to go into it, to make things work out!
This is a picture taken of us in 1978...near the date of our 17th. anniversary!
This was a happy day! We were going to a Gordon Lightfoot concert on Miami Beach! It was a good show, which we both enjoyed!
This is a poem I wrote last year...
These years we’ve been together,
down this road of life…
through calm or stormy weather…
through the pain and strife…
through the happiest of seasons that, so,
out weigh the rest…
sharing what we’ve treasured…
time has been our test!
Both learning, as time passes,
the craft of compromise…
how, overtime, things change a bit,
may take us by surprise.
Sometimes change feels threatening,
seems like the winter’s wind
that howls in it’s persistence,
impatient to come in.
Changes are just ripples,
can’t touch us - you must know-
or break the bond created,
all those years ago.
