Today is our anniversary.
There are those who would say that I have been standing in front of the kitchen sink for ‘41’ years. . .
Doing very little besides laboring over a hot stove and washing dishes.
Marriage has never been a drudgery to me.
Together we have shared lots of laughs and even shed a few tears.
He has always encouraged me with a ‘can do’ attitude.
When I wanted to open my own business and had 4 children at home, he never questioned why. .
Just took me to the bank to get a small business loan and said, “Why not give it a try?”
Raising children in my day was what one called, “woman’s work”. . .
He gladly took care of ‘our chicks’ in the evening while I taught classes and never did shirk!
Although we love spending time together, he gives me time alone. . .
To get away with family and friends, or even just to roam.
He’s never been one to bring home chocolate or flowers. . .
But ‘sprinkles’ me with kindness and generosity of the money he has earned working many long hours.
He has a hard time understanding my love for junk. . .
But this is the man who went in the basement of an antique store to search for an old crib bed springs for me. I had told him I wanted one. He found one, but we were unable to buy it. Still, he happily loaded lots of other goodies into our trunk!
He stole my heart from the very first glance. . .
Tall, dark, and handsome – every girls dream!
And I am ever so happy that he decided to give me a chance!
I met him when I was a senior in high school and was really quite smitten. . .
But it wasn’t until college and I was away from him that I knew that the love bug had bitten!
On our wedding day I felt like Cinderella and Prince Charming had stolen my heart. . .
Soon we were whisked away to make our own start.
We are growing old together and so is our love. . .
Celebrating ‘41’ years is the best blessing I could ask for from the good Lord above!
Happy ‘41st’ Anniversary to my Sweetheart!
This poem is a bit cheesy, but all humor aside, my life has been a joy ride! lol! I just can’t stop.
I always thought that I didn’t want to marry until I was at least ‘23’. But you never know what life has in store for you. After I met Greg (Shultz is what I call him). We fell in love and I was married at the age of 19. Boy does that ever sound young. Had our first of 5 children when I was 21 and he was 23. From there, oh how it has been ‘A Wonderful Life’!
