Our story began…

We thought it was so cute and funny to play “This is the End of The World (as you know it)” as we walked down the aisle as Mr. and Mrs.  We had no idea when we said ” To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness or in health, to love and to cherish ‘till death do us part.” that there would be more worse than better, more poorer than richer and a lot more sickness than health.  But there is more love than ever, and certainly a cherished adventure unlike any we could have imagined (and certainly different than we would have chosen ourselves), but that’s where the romance comes from.  “fate” “destiny” “love at first sight” have nothing to do with romance.  The cute 80 and 90 year old couples you see still holding hands didn’t place the eggs all in the “happily ever after” basket, no, they took life as it came, and they grew together through the struggles and unexpected.  They stayed when they wanted to leave, and the loved when they wanted to hate.  Should God bless us with another 50+ years of life together, I know that at 85, you will still be my valentine.
