What to say. Married 43 years and not much to say about it. Well, that’s not exactly true, there is plenty to say. I can tell you 43 years has gone by quick and yet slow. Have you ever heard that days go slow but the years go fast? This was really true when the kids were small, sometimes those days would just drag by until daddy came home and, and, and eat supper and watch tv until bed time. LOL
That’s how it use to be, husbands didn’t help out like they do now. I wonder why that was. My fella would at least put the kids to bed, he almost always did that. I gave them the bath, got the pj’s on and he would slip into the bedroom and stay with them until they would fall asleep. Funny thing is, that seems to be the thing the kids remember. They don’t remember all the baths, they remember dad going to bed with them and talking until they fell asleep, all three of them.
So what did we get each other? Welllllllllllllllllllllllllll, I told Bob to skip the present there is nothing I want and the VitaMix was pretty expensive for Mother’s Day. What did I get him? Flowers. Yup, I did. He told me one time when I was wishing for flowers that I have never gotten him flowers, so I fooled him and did it. Here’s the kicker, after a few days I asked him how he liked his flowers, he said, “What flowers?” Funny, isn’t it? Oh well, I have enjoyed the flowers, I’m not sure he thinks of them as his. Who knows.
So do you have the picture? No gifts, no cards, well except for flowers. We did go out to eat with four other people and we went to the university dairy for an ice cream cone. You know what? It was perfect, really it’s just nice to be happy, healthy and still seeking Jesus.
