I hope no one minds but I thought I’d do something different for this post. Up till now my ramblings have been my feeble attempts at poetry. This time I’d like to ramble about something a little more… Personal.
Today is my wedding anniversary, 27 years with my beautiful Mrs. I’m sure she won’t mind me saying though that this is what we call our second anniversary. Our first anniversary, which we celebrate in November, recognises the day when we first met. This November we will have been together 33 years.
In today’s money I think that’s quite an investment :).
The truth is, I love this woman as much now as I did when I first met her. My apologies if it sounds a cliche but it’s true. Don’t get me wrong it’s not been easy, we’ve had some bust ups, real hum dingers but we came out the other end still standing. Even now with my ‘issues’, being out of the mental health closet, she’s had a lot to put up with but still manages to love me.
So this morning we went to one of our local beach cafés for breakfast. The sun was shining, blue sky; it truly was a perfectly beautiful morning. After food we took a walk along the front and came across a collection of different chalk drawings and messages. One of the quotes, which I’ve added above, kinda summoned up the day for me.
“Be the rainbow in someone else’s cloud”.
Happy Anniversary Mrs XX,
