A Very Special Day



For 36 Years!

Thirty six years ago today my sweetheart and I stood before God, our friends and family and pledged our love to each other - forever. Would I do it over again? No question - I would not hesitate to say "I do" to the love of my life. I can't imagine life without him. He is a gentle, loving man who loves me beyond understanding. I have been blessed - we have been blessed. Life has been an adventure. Together.

I love you, my sweetheart. You are truly 'the wind beneath my wings.'

Edited to add: My sweetheart gave me a very special gift this morning. It is a treasure to my heart. He knew I admired it. He picked it out himself. I collect Willow Tree people and angels. It's a small, beginning collection. Today he added the piece that will always be at the top of my favorites - Promise: Hold dear the promise of love. It is on the top of the dresser in our room where we can see it and always remember this special gift from this special man on this special day.
