A Very Special Day.

Today is a very special day.

Today my wonderful man and I celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.

I know what you're thinking and yes I was a child bride! (well almost)

I am so lucky to have found such a wonderful man to share my life with. I have two friends who have recently lost their partners. Both similar age to me, one who's husband tragically died a few weeks ago leaving 3 children and the other who's partner of many years ended the relationship a few months ago. I think of these two lovely ladies and I am sooo thankful for what I have.

We're sat here together on the sofa while he works from home today. He with his laptop and me with mine in companionable silence. Manky cat is curled up in front of the fire, sneaky dog is woofing in her sleep, paws twitching back and forth. Five more minutes and the children will come bursting through the front door from school.
I am so happy.

I found this little passage to write in the card I gave him. They're not my words but they squeezed my heart when I read them, so I figured that was the next best thing.

Whenever I look into your eyes I see all that love has to give: passion, peace, compassion, desire, trust and respect. You are always within me where ever I go. Forever soul mates for life, husband and wife.

Thank you Darling for sharing your life with me. x

Hope you had a lovely anniversary and congratulations on 20 years. I love that quote. We're getting married in March and looking for a second reading for our civil ceremony having already found one lovely one. I'm wondering if the one you've quoted is too short to read out. If so I think my husband to be may be getting something with this written on. Maybe a bit of framed embroidery. Hmmm, would a man appreciate that?
