Before the day ends, can I tell you something? Today, the Big He and I celebrated our 29th Wedding Anniversary. It looked really different than anniversaries past except for the immense love we have for each other and our traditional anniversary meal.
In our youth we celebrated big, with flowers and dinner and grand gestures. In our youth we thought we had forever. As we journey deeper into our ALS life, our needs and those things that fill our hearts are simplified. This view of things is apparent in our marriage. We don’t need the grand gestures anymore. We don’t need small gestures either. We just need love. That one great love. True love. Romantic love. Friendship love. Unconditional love. Love that changes as we grow, love that empowers us, and love that keeps us going.
At the end of the day or the end of our life, it is love that matters.
The pictures above were taken just before the Big He entered the Air Force. We had only been dating for about a month or so but by the time these pictures were taken (September 1989) we had already professed our love for each other.
Happy Anniversary Sweetheart! I love you more.
All my love,
