The year we were married, spring came early and the trees and flowers were all in bloom. I remember the wisteria bush at my parents house was full of vibrant blossoms and looked like a purple waterfall on the side of their house. I can't remember it ever blooming like that before and I know it hasn't since. It was spectacular. Of course we took full advantage of it and used it as a back drop for several wedding photos. It was a beautiful representation of our wedding day.
Time has flown by - faster each year. This year spring is slow to come. The early flowers are out but the trees and bushes have yet to bloom. It was sunny today but the temperatures were only in the 50s with a strong, cold wind blowing from the North. This year, there's no correlation between the weather and our marriage. My life with Brad is wonderful - fulfilling. He surprised me with a beautiful jade necklace to represent our 26 years or marriage. I love my life and I love my boys and as cliched as it sounds, they really are the light of my life. It gets better every year. Happy Anniversary to me - to us!
"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong because at some point in your life, you will have been all of these."
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
