Walk down 'Memory Lane'

What a special day! Not a big, fancy celebration...just a quiet day spent talking about the day we became Mr & Mrs, 44 years ago. We started down 'memory lane' with a simple breakfast, then puttered around town checking out local antique spots, drove up a few little roads to explore the countryside, visited our son, and then back home. Off & on during the day, we would look at the time and recall what we were doing at a particular time all those years ago. I will admit that today was a much more relaxing day than our actual wedding day... This evening, I requested that we have dinner at, as we ate a scrumptious steak dinner we continued our recollections of our wedding and agreed that these 44 years have been awesome...a few bumps here & there, but not enough to consider. These years have strengthened our bond, given us two wonderful children, a sweet son-in-law and three special grandboys! We have spent countless hours talking and laughing and agree that those are traits everyone should adopt to make their marriage a lasting, loving journey. I think sometimes, we need to celebrate the anniversary of events with simple tasks in order to have the time to focus on the actual reason we're celebrating...We cherish each other and the specialness of our union 44 years ago...we pray for many more years together, talking and laughing and loving one another...And we give Thanks for years past...AMEN
