My Beloved said to me...

"Come to me, my Love, its our Forever Anniversary today - and I await you."

And then he said "Oh Darling, light of my life, I long for you to join me!"

But we finally had to accept - I'm still VERY sick. Its hard to be romantic with a snuffly, runny nose and no energy. Normally that adorable pout would melt me like a puddle of wax under a burning flame, but...

We did exchange cards and gifts but I'm afraid the bulk of our celebrating will happen this weekend - so I will disappear off the radar for a few days over that period of time.

Miles, as I said on my card for you:

Happy Anniversary Miles, 2009

Our love and faith
have carried us on this journey
through life together.

It's been a grand adventure
full of wonderful experiences.

The road has sometimes been hard,
and sometimes the map
was not exactly clear,
but as we worked together
we have come to this amazing place
we call today.

Its more beautiful
than any place we've been before.

How it can get any better
~ I don't know,
but, I believe it will.

We've been to the oceans
and the peaks of high mountains.

I think we have our best adventures ahead,
and I have my bag
permanently packed
~ for my home is in your heart
wherever that may be.

I love you more than ever.

~ Barb

A special thank you to my sister Nina for her gorgeous card, and to my Sister in Law, Judy for your wonderful layout (wow - that was a LONG time ago!) Thank you for remembering our day. It means more than you can know.
