Another year, it’s time to celebrate a long-lasting marriage. My parents celebrate their 61st wedding anniversary today. If you were to ask them what is the “secret” to a long marriage, they’d probably say there’s nothing special. Undoubtedly, there is considerable truth and wisdom in that answer.
This evening, we’ll gather to celebrate with good food and drink. We’ll marvel about how nice the weather has been for a third year in a row, with sunny skies and seasonal temperatures, as October draws to a close. There’ll be plenty of laughter, with an occasional “what are you talking about” moment sprinkled in.
Taking dinner on the back deck, under a quarter moon, may be a bit chilly. Besides, we don’t want any uninvited reptiles coming for a warm-up visit. So, it’ll be an indoor affair.
Happy Anniversary, mom and dad, with many, many more to come.
