Daily I am reminded what a wonderful life I have lived since that fateful date.
The drive to the place where we agreed to meet was nerve wracking. It was not anything to do with the drive itself; I don’t even remember if there was any other traffic on the road. I was driving to meet the woman I was certain would become my wife, my best friend, my partner, my soul mate. So I sweated mercilessly. I chewed Altoids – one after another.
Six months, twenty-eight days later we shared self-written promises as we married. Non-traditional, but exactly words that matched our personalities; we in essence said “I do.”
And every day since – whether verbally or not – we have re-spoken “I do.”
A plant needs rich soil
love grows from richness unseen
our roots intertwine
