Happy Anniversary, Baby!
27 years today! All my love and thanks to my precious husband, who has stuck by me through all these years. You're the BEST!
"Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it..." Song of Solomon 8:7.
Yes, that's us with our preacher dads--August 19, 1978
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.--Shakepeare's Sonnet 116
