A Special Day!
Today, my husband and I celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary. I am still as much in love with him today as I was 23 years ago, but it's a love that has changed as we have changed. It is deeper and more enduring today, than it was when we first got married.
The first bloom of love, that heart stopping infatuation with each other, has changed into a solid companionship, a joining of two hearts into one. We have become a true team, building a family life that gives us all respect and trust. Family is the building block on which society is built. A strong family means as strong country.
Commitment is not easy, there are many bumps along the road, but if you do not try, if you give up because it's not what you expected, you are taking the easy and selfish way in solving problems. This is only a "me" generation because the fabric of the family has come under attack. Divorce is too easy, and Hollywood makes it look normal, it shouldn't be, not unless it is an abusive relationship.
Millions of people commit to each other and stay committed. They work out the bumps, and stand together against any threat to their families. They are the backbone of this country. Think back to the pioneers, they had only each other to rely on, and the communities they lived in worked together to help all people. That is what has made our country great, people committed to building safe communities.
To my husband, on this special day. I love you dear, may we have many, many more anniversaries together. May we face the bumps in the road with strong hearts, and stand together to give our boys the moral values they will need to grow up as young adults who take responsibility for their lives and actions.
Now, dear, you have the laundry to do, and the dill in our garden needs to be thinned out. Life is good! Another interesting day is going to be my birthday, the 08/08/08, going to buy a lotto ticket that day for sure! This little guy helped make the day even more special, he's raiding the bird feeder.
