So tonight I'll ask

the stars above
How did I ever win your love?
What did I do?
What did I say?
To turn your angel eyes my way?
-Jeff Healey Band, Angel Eyes

Happy Anniversary a day late to my wonderful hubby. (Hey! Gimme a break on the tardiness! I spent the day with him, not writing blog posts!) I tried very hard to post a picture of us on our wedding day, but as you may note by the lack of visuals, I failed. See, we got married back in the dark ages before digital photography was the norm. I think our photographer took digital pics, but we sure didn't get the images. I tried scanning some of the snapshots we printed with no success.

Nine years ago, I promised to love you "in sickness and in health." I never really thought through those words before now. It never occurred to me that "in sickness" might not mean "I'll love you even if you become sick." It means so much more.

So, thank you honey, for being the one I take this journey through life with. Thanks for making me laugh. Thanks for keeping me grounded and calm. Thanks for being such a caring and gentle father to our boys. Thanks for overlooking my atrocious housekeeping skills. Thanks for holding my hand on the tough days. Thanks for being mine. I am one lucky girl.

Happy 9th Anniversary to a VERY special couple from one who is approaching her 34th anniversary! I wish you both, as James Dobson put it, "Love for a lifetime"!

It's the sandpaper in life that is supposed to smooth the rough spots, or so I've been told. I think you got a batch of steel wool there for a bit. Hoping the road remains smooth.
Love and Happy Anniversary,
Susie
