It's Been Exhilarating

How to describe twenty-six years of marriage? This could take volumes, pages and pages, thousands of pictures, maybe a blog of 26 years, not merely 13. Our twenty-six years of marriage have been exhilarating. An adventure on black ice, skating at high speed, with everything ahead of us, and beauty all around us. Our marriage has been a road trip, with no brakes {twice, actually}, with children, pets, friends, spills, detours, unexpected sights, familiar rest stops, flat tires, and a constant compass: Love. And I cannot help but notice that this anniversary feels particularly poignant and meaningful, because I believe that blessings, opportunities, even a simple meal, are all enhanced and far more enjoyable when shared. So if I may, as a long-married woman, who still feels like a giddy girl in love, I would like to wish love and companionship, respect and caring, partnership, and beauty, through marriage, for all who seek it.

Congratulations to you both - being married for so long, and staying connected in an open-hearted, mindful way, is a real accomplishment. Yay for love! Xoxo

Tears with my croissant!
It's you, Miriam, friend.
I've missed you, and wondered about you.
This is a truly lovely blessing on the day, to hear from you. Thank you.

Happy, happy anniversary! What a special day it is! I can't help thinking of the ripple out effect of goodness that you two have created (more like a goodness tsunami).

Congratulations on 26 years!!

Congratulations! I can testify that when you marry the right person, the years fly by (we've been married 33 years). Love your blog and wish you many more years of happiness and joy.

Congratulations friends! It's an accomplishment to be sure but it's sort of easier when you have a perfect mate! Best wishes for many more!
