More years than some have been alive
it's longer than most mortgages
Moses was 40 years in the wilderness herding sheep before the Lord called him to deliver the children of Israel
Some call it the "Ruby Anniversary"
When you have been married to someone for 40 years, you tend to finish each others sentences,
know what is for dinner without even asking,
are familiar with life's routines,
you know the other's intense like and dislikes,
you wonder where they were that day when you recall a childhood memory.
Yes, its been that long that we have been married
It seems like just last year or the year before, time flies so fast
And yet, I remember the children being born,
The first high school graduation
The first wedding
(is is possible that they have been married 20 years this month?)
(are they even old enough to be married?)
The first grandchild
and more to follow
The first death of a loved one before we thought it was time
a lot of water under the bridge, as they say,
So many memories, so many more to make
it has been a wonderful 40 years.
Happy Anniversary to my Mr
