Yesterday Dave and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary. We have had a house full of our children, their mates and little Ava our granddaughter. We now have a pop up tent in the living room, clothes, shoes and toys everywhere, books, photos and flowers. It is wonderful to have them around as it makes the event even more special.
When we were married 23 years ago, we would never have imagined that our journey together would have been like this. It has been full, overflowing with memorable times. It hardly seems that so much time has passed and that we too have changed and yet it sometimes feels like not much time has passed. How is that possible? As our children get older we too are ageing and that is a scary thought.
Dave has the ability to make me laugh and that is one of the many attractive things about him, when telling others about our anniversary he always tells the same old jokes, like " some criminals get less time for life in prison" and "I had hair when I married San she made me lose it all." I know he is joking and it does make me laugh.
