Look at those two kids on their wedding day. They both had hair and neither was gray.
Once we've passed the big 5-0 celebration, each subsequent year just seems like that, just another year. There will be no big celebration. I'll spend the day doing my recovery and rehabilitation stuff and Tom will work outside until he leaves for a late afternoon eye appointment.
We will go out to dinner at a nearby favorite Mexican restaurant. Even a non-notable year deserves recognition. After all - 54 years!
It's hard not to think about how we all got old when I look at this photo, where we were all so young. Two of my sisters are gone. One of Tom's cousins passed years ago. The rest of us are all grandparents, some with adult grands.
Tom has been my beloved life partner for a long time now. Once again he has been called on to see me through another surgery recovery, and he is a wonderful caretaker. Our love is still strong as we approach old age.
Thank you, Tom, for these 54 years together. We'll work to keep each other going for more years to come.
Congrats to you and Tom! It goes by fast, doesn't it? Just keep taking care of each other and you'll hopefully have many more years together.ReplyDelete

When I saw your post "54 years" I just had to see if you posted the picture of you and Tom looking back throught the car window. I love that picture! Love your wedding picture too. Congratulations! You two make such a great couple. Sorry I haven't visited in a while but I did check back on those posts I've missed. Irene is really something! She is such a beautiful girl. So glad you are doing so well.ReplyDelete
