Just Breathe. (Oops, I can't!)

I wanted to delve into the past and write a beautiful piece for and about Dave in honor of our 39th wedding anniversary today, but I'm a little too sick to get the job done. I'm not even up to going out for dinner, which is kinda sad.

Oh well, today's walk down memory lane will just have to be a picture.

Happy anniversary, Dave.

We looked pretty good together, didn't we?
(Methinks the condition of this picture gives our age away!)

So does this one...

Sheesh. What happened to us?
(Maybe you should shave your beard??)


Seriously, though. This one's for you, Dave...

Our love is deep and constant as the sea,

yet fresh as mountain air in early spring

and free as meadowlarks who, taking wing,

come home to find their rest in nest and tree.

Our love is life, for earth and sky are we,

and air and water––and two hearts that sing.

These are the lasting treasures that we bring...

I give myself to you, and you to me.

You give yourself to me, and I to you.

On this, our wedding day, with loved ones near,

the dream we found together has come true.

Our hands are joined, and now our path is clear:

to make love live and breathe in all we do.

This is our marriage vow, for God to hear.

(It's a reprint, but you are always my inspiration...)

Love you, Dave.

Sorry you aren't feeling well, we have that in common. (I have laryngitis and bronchitis, yuck!) We also have in common a wedding picture that looks very similar...ha! Looking back at the last post it looks like you had a nice dinner in San Fran that was great. Hope you can celebrate this weekend, so here's to better health and a love that has lasted a lifetime! Congrats!

Happy Anniversary! 39 eternity and beyond!
I sure hope you get feeling better!

PS I think Dave is a very lucky man.

What a bummer to be sick on your 39th Anniversary! I hope you feel better soon and get to go out this weekend.
Sweet pictures and words. It does us all good to be reminded of the promises and vows we made to our spouses.

Happy Anniversary, Sue!! My hubby and I have been married 43 years and it just gets better every year. I look back and wonder where the time has gone. I am like you, I have a wonderful, loving caring husband who I am blessed to spend eternity with. It will be my birthday Sunday and we are both under the weather but it will get better and we will enjoy Christmas together. Hope you are feeling better soon and Merry Christmas. Happy 39th. I love your pictures.

I'm so sorry you're not feeling well. But this remains true: Dave is a great guy, and YOU, my friend, are a great girl. A match made in heaven. Congratulations to both of you! (And feel better soon!)

You were a cute couple then and you're a cute couple now. Wow, seeing that photo (the one in not great condition), makes me realize how much Karen looks like you! YIKES! Congrats to you and Dave for a marvelous accomplishment in every sense of that word. Happy Anniversary and MANY MANY more!

Happy Anniversary - 39 years is a long time!
I wish I could see your wedding pictures better - Your dress looks so beautiful - I can tell you were a gorgeous bride!!

I hope you are feeling better soon then you can go out to dinner :-D

There used to be a little Italian restaurant in - your city - that my husband and I would go to on special occasions - I wonder if it's still there.

Pondside said...

A very Happy Anniversary to you and your Dave. You were just 10 months ahead of us - weren't we young?
I'm so sorry that you are unwell, and hope you'll feel better very quickly!

Esther Joy said...

I hope you are feeling much better, breathing much better, and maybe able to celebrate your anniversary - even if it's not on the actual day!

Loved the wedding day picture, and then the Santa picture! Merry Christmas, Sue!
