To Have and to Hold!

Our Wedding Day
June 21, 2008
Today my husband and I are celebrating our two year wedding anniversary! Well, actually, he’s currently being a good citizen and honoring the jury duty call. Sigh. But we had a fabulous weekend celebrating, so I’m not feeling too sad.

Our Wedding Day
June 21, 2008

Today’s post is short with nothing about writing because all I can think about is how blessed I am to have my hubby in my life. If I had to choose between being a famous published novelist without my husband or being an unknown unpublished writer with my husband, I would choose the latter. No contest. My husband is an unshakable mountain in a land of valleys and earthquakes. The writing life is many things: fun, unpredictable, frustrating, exciting, disappointing, joyful. I’m relieved I have someone by my side who supports the capriciousness! I’m grateful my husband wants my dream for me just as much as I do.

He was already practicing
his proposal :)

This day marks 2 years of marriage, 7 years together, 10 years as best friends, and 17 years since we’ve known each other. The first time I saw my husband we were six years old, and we’ve been friends since we were seven. When I say he’s my reliable constant in an unpredictable life, I mean it with all my heart.

Did you tell your spouse or partner how important he (or she) is to you today? Have you told your biggest supporters how much they are appreciated? Do it!!!

Happy Anniversary !
An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.
We have been married for 29 years, and things are still going great.
And I too would never trade my husband for anything or anyone in this life.
We don't have to tell each other ,it is understood.

Laura Pauling said...
