❤Happy 29th Anniversary!❤

on July 10, 2013

That’s wedding, of course, not blogoversary! Even with my husband’s 63rd day of hospital confinement in a critical care facility, we can still celebrate 29 years together. July 10, 1984 marked the beginning of our marriage that has definitely had its share of ups and downs but weathered the storms always welcoming the rainbows of better days.

To my Jim. . .Happy 29th Anniversary!

For the Love of You

With the dawning of each morning
I awake amid yawns and smiles
Thinking how much I adore you
How every moment’s worthwhile

Rising amid sunbeams or teardrops
Melodies stir within my heart
Reviving songs of togetherness
Even more so now we’re apart

In times of minor differences
Okays override any nays
Such as life’s phases come and go
We keep happy most of the days

A gaze outside the window
Catches sight of misty rain
There is no sun to be seen
Just grayness, dowdy and plain

Toward the distant horizon
Gray skies disclose bits of blue
A crystal-clear ray of sunshine
Glistens for the love of you

You are the smile
Still warming my heart
Inspiring, loving
’Til death do us part

“Here’s my love, take it. Here’s my soul, use it. Here’s my heart, don’t break it. Here’s my hand, hold it and together we will make it forever.”

    I can’t think of a couple that deserves to celebrate more than you and Jim. I’m hoping that this is a marker … the start of some time that is deservedly good, not just better. GOOD. Happy. Fun. Joyous. I wish you all the good things that money can’t buy and some of those terrific fun things that money CAN buy! Love always!

I applaud your courage and faith and know one day we will stand before God repeating of vows together. Keep on writing, loving your groom and finding the peace you so deserve.
    Much Love,
