It's Our Anniversary
Forty Six Years. And people who know us said we'd kill each other sooner rather than later. Well, we're both still alive and we had dinner together this evening.
Life is such a surprise. You think you are heading somewhere and then, 46 years later, you realize you went somewhere else (entirely) and...... it turned out to be better than anything you ever thought would happen. Even the bad parts you never thought you would live through--- well, they led you to the good parts, eventually. And would we have appreciated the good things if we hadn't suffered the bad things? I think not. I miss the people (friends) we left behind or lost completely by moving 12 times. I would have liked to have had them with me for the entire lifetime. I would have liked sitting down with them in another 20 years to tell stories and be reminded of the (our) past.
But I have you. We haven't (all) been together for years and years, but some of you have been along since the 1980's (Marianne), and earlier (my children), but as long as there is Blogger I will be writing and sharing with you. Telling stories. Sharing memories. Laughing. Crying. Etc.
And who would have imagined that back in 1968?
