A One in a Million You

It feels a bit surreal, but today marks my 100th post!  What started as a 'creative outlet' this summer has turned into an important part of my day--planning what to write, hunting through poems and pictures to share something meaningful with you, and in the process rediscovering how much I love to write.  Thank you for sharing this journey with me.

And speaking of is my husband and my thirtieth wedding anniversary!  I'm really not sure where the time went, but I know it has encompassed a lot of memories and adventures, plus mountains of laundry, house projects (advice for my young get to thirty years of marriage by NOT hanging wallpaper together!), and Tuesday night 'what's for supper?" conundrums.  It has spanned weddings, births, the loss of loved ones, family celebrations, camping trips, cross-country vacations in mini-vans, trips to the ER, health scares, and a staggering amount of soccer games, basketball games, baseball games, football games, ballet recitals, orchestra concerts, plays and piano recitals.  And lucky me, because through all of it I have had the best partner and friend one could hope for right by my side, through thick and thin, for better and for worse.  Happy anniversary to my amazing husband, and I'm looking forward to the next thirty!  Hopefully there will be even more fun and less laundry....

Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can't help falling in love with you
Shall I stay
Would it be a sin
If I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you

November 27, 1982

I can't remember when you weren't there
When I didn't care for anyone but you
I swear we've been through everything there is
Can't imagine anything we've missed
Can't imagine anything the two of us can't do

Honeymoon, Cancun, Mexico
Through the years, you've never let me down
You turned my life around, the sweetest days I've found
I've found with you ... Through the years
I've never been afraid, I've loved the life we've made
And I'm so glad I've stayed, right here with you
Through the years

25th anniversary, Santorini, Greece

Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there's no one else above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away all my sadness
Ease my troubles that's what you do

For the morning sun in all it's glory
Greets the day with hope and comfort too
You fill my life with laughter
And somehow you make it better
Ease my troubles that's what you do
There's a love that's divine
And it's yours and it's mine like the sun
And at the end of the day
We should give thanks and pray
To the one, to the one
