Happy Anniversary

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
Ephesians 4:32
It’s how we’ve run our day to day married life.

It’s Forever

When I married you, 
I did not know -
Could not fathom -
That the years
Would go by so quickly.
I did not know where
years came from 
Nor where they went.
But I had only seen 21 years -
a young girl
so far
And had only known you
for a year when we said “I do” -
“I do take thee
Forever.”
It is almost that now -
I would like to take you
For one more
Forever, please.
This one hasn’t 
been long enough.

  1. Happy Anniversary, Donna and Tim. That is a lot of years, a lot of tough and happy, too. As long as you're together, it makes each day a joy. I love the poem "for one more".

    1. Lately it's been tougher it seems, but we are plowing through it! I'd still do it again!
