Remembering...

This April we will be celebrating 25 years of marriage....YES....we have beaten the stats!! (especially considering that we had both been married before) As I sit here this morning I am remembering....remembering the moment that love appeared.....We were out on a date (remember those...when boys called girls up and asked them out and picked up the tab!!) and we had gone to a restaurant in the very artsy section of town that overlooks the river....after dinner we walked on the bridge that crosses the river....there was a moment while walking when he took me in his arms....and started slow dancing with me right on that bridge....while singing "Light of my Life"
Now how was he to know that, that very song was a favorite of mine?!! Because when I was a little girl my Father use to sing it to me...and my Father also gave me a music box that played that tune (which has long since disappeared much to my dismay)....How was he to know? How was he to know how much that could of possibly touched my heart?
And thru the ups and the downs....the ins and the outs of these 25 years (actually we have been together 27) he still tells me every day that I am the Light of his Life.....
Today I remember that moment that love entered my heart....
