|This was taken at a party about a week or so after we were married - gosh we were young!|
And I'm thinking I may need to re-visit that haircut.
It's hard to believe that so much time has passed between then and now. Back then I was young and
I know that when we rushed into this marriage, oh-so-long-ago, that there were those that thought we were crazy, that it wouldn't last or that I was pregnant. And, obviously, they were all wrong. Well, except for those that thought we were crazy...they might have been on to something.
But whatever, it's worked out. Sure, we've had our rough patches through the years (I'm not even counting the unemployment years). Some of those patches were so rough, I wondered if we would weather the storm.
There have been times when he's made me so mad I wanted to hurt him - seriously hurt him. But I refrained. I'm sure he's felt the same at times (although, perhaps not as often - 'cause I'm SO easy to live with....) and, obviously, he's refrained as well.
P!nk's song "True Love" speaks the truth about love. And, funnily enough, this album also has a song called "The Truth About Love" which also speaks volumes about what love entails.
FYI...the lyrics are rather explicit. You've been warned
It's always about compromise, communication, and knowing what battles to fight and what battles to let go. It's about laughing together. Because the ability to laugh in the face of your struggles will carry you far.
It's about the occasional surprise, such as this absolutely gorgeous arrangement...
And remembering that you promised to love this celery-chomping, furniture-moving man till death do you part.
And, as I like to remind him from time to time, the only way he's getting out of this marriage is through death...most likely his.
It's seems to have worked so far. So let's see what the next twenty-three years brings, shall we?
