everyone! First and foremost, I want to thank ALL of my very dear
friends and followers who send their many condolences and caring hugs
out to my hubby and I. I can not begin to tell you just how much that
meant to us! You are all such a huge blessing!
weekend hubby and I were planning on celebrating our 12-year wedding
anniversary. However, in light of our recent tragedy we have decided to
postpone that for another couple of weeks or so. In the meantime, my
hubby, in a good effort to cheer me up and change the overall somber
mood in our household, decided to give me my anniversary gift a little
early. It was a beautiful Willow Tree piece titled, "Together" ...
And so, I gave him his gift as well. A heart-shaped music box which plays the song, "Unchained Melody" and envgraved with this these words ...
“I give to you my continuing love, friendship, honor and respect. I shall be there for you always as full partners, each to the other. Should one falter, the other shall pick them up again. Should one despair, the other shall comfort them. Should one lose their way, the other shall see them home again. Happy Anniversary, Love always ~ Kim"
These words were supposed to be part of our Handfasting Renewal vows which we would like to hopefully have performed eventually. The vows ring so true, most especially at this time. Nothing is perfect, and our marriage is not any different than anyone else's in that respect. We have weathered many storms and somehow have continued to get through them and be there for one another. I suppose that is the real definition of commitment.
