Forty-nine years ago, Robert and I were too busy preparing for our wedding to celebrate Valentine's Day, and the two days have clashed ever since. Friday, February 18, we celebrate our 49th anniversary. Yep, forty-nine years together, not with anyone else.
When we began this journey together, we thought we knew what love was. However, we had no idea, not really. Today, we are partners in every way.
Of course we don't always agree. In fact, we often disagree, but love is being willing to work together despite our disagreements . Perfect, no, we neither are perfect, nor has our marriage been. However, we've stuck together because we each feel the other completes us.
When we celebrate our anniversary Friday, thanks to a gift card to Applebee's, we will also look forward to next year when we celebrate our 50th.
