So Happy Together

Don’t marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can’t live without. ~James C. Dobson

Mere days after the full moon on Friday the 13th, Rob and I are celebrating our 13th Anniversary. As a result, we have decided to skip our 13th Anniversary and celebrate two 14th Anniversaries instead. This year is our first 14th, and next year will be our 2nd 14th. Perhaps by the time we hit our 15th, we will be back on track again. If not, then we will make the necessary adjustments. That method has worked for us for the past 13 years, so I have no reason to believe that it won’t continue to work for the next 50 or so. That is, as long as Rob is willing to put up with me that long. ūüôā

Happy Anniversary, Honey!!!

Come, let’s be a comfortable couple and take care of each other! How glad we shall be, that we have somebody we are fond of always, to talk to and sit with. ~Charles Dickens

For Rob

For you see, each day I love you more
Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.
~Rosemonde Gerard

How quickly time does fly, my love. I can hardly believe that you are still putting up with me after 12 years of marriage. To think of all the paths we have taken and all the roads we have been on together. What a ride it has been. And I have loved every single minute of it. I wish I could be so much more for you because you deserve it. But oh, how I do love you. Always have, always will. Period. Here’s to many more happy years together and the amazing adventures yet to come. Happy Anniversary, Honey!

Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly.  ~Rose Franken

Therapy Kitty

There has never been a cat
Who couldn’t calm me down
By walking
slowly
Past my chair.
~Rod McKuen

Few things are as relaxing as scooping this little guy up, draping him over your shoulder, and resting your head on his warm side as he purrs contentedly in your ear¬†and pads your back with his paws. Or simply petting his sun-warmed fur as he naps in the sunshine. Some¬†people have therapy animals, and while this may be unbelievable¬†to some, I assure you that¬†there¬†are definitely pets who have an incredible healing power. Remi is¬†one of them. Through all of life’s ups and downs, all the chaos that¬†occurs on a regular basis, all the¬†worry and¬†wonder, all the uncertainty, Remi remains constant. I’m here, he says, as he curls up on your lap. Pet me. Love me. Breathe.

And suddenly, all is well with the world.

A Wonderful Couple

True love stories never have endings.  ~Richard Bach

My parents are amazing role models. They have taught us what it means to stick together. To love each other unconditionally. To never give up, no matter what. They have taught us that in the end, true love and friendship are what really matter. That nothing is more important than respect.

My parents have a beautiful marriage, and today they are celebrating 37 years together. 37 years of happiness. Wishing you many, many more.

Happy Anniversary!! We love you!

¬†We’re all a little weird.¬† And life is a little weird.¬† And when we find someone
whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into
mutually satisfying weirdness Рand call it love Рtrue love.  ~Robert Fulghum,
