Really? 25 years married to the same guy? I got my oldest boy to go dig out the wedding album. His first comment was, "Wow, I didn't realize you had colour back then", this sent me into a fit of laughter that had him looking at me like I had lost it, and the old folks home was not far off.
No marriage is without it's bumps, but we have worked them out, and our relationship is stronger than when we were all starry eyed and hot to trot. Commitment to each other, and to our marriage has allowed us to grow as a couple and most importantly, has given our boys a stable family life so that they can thrive.
We are starting to think about when the boys leave home, and it will just be the two of us again. Hubby is from PEI and it calls him back all the time. His anniversary gift to me , was a wonderful picture of PEI, you can almost smell the ocean and hear the sea gulls.
I love the island and the people. One of my favorite places is French River. The colours are stunning, as an Alberta born girl, I have a certain fascination with the ocean, especially the shellfish.
What did I get my hubby? An antique "Billy the Kid" pocket knife, that is just too cool. He is very hard to get anything for, because he just goes and buys anything he needs. I also got him a WWII medal and a silver coin.
No big party, just beef stroganoff and caesar salad for supper. I am busy learning how to restore antique furniture, I am trying my hand on a $15 garage sale find. Anyone know what kind of wood this is??
Oh well, have power sander, will grind away! Marriage is a lot like that, keep polishing until you reach the point that you want to apply the sealant. Very rewarding when you work together.
