“I knew when I met you an adventure was going to happen.” Winnie the Pooh
And that’s the truth! My husband and I have been married for 53 years – and during those years – I can readily say, it has been a very sweet adventure.
It was an adventure of committed love, new places, new ideas, new friendships, old friendships – settled years – and always our family first.
Our two children were the precious gifts of our time together – and we can’t forget our pooch – Tootsie – who claimed our love and attention these past eleven years.
And now our three grandsons take the cake!
And Grampa Dick as he’s called skipped into that role with ease and joy and love and gratefulness – and a tad of adventure still left in him.
But I’m sad to say Dick passed on this past week, but not before we had the chance to thank each other many times for sharing our lives together – for being loving and patient and – of course – sometimes not – but forever and always grateful for these precious 53 years – thank you for this incredible adventure together.
