Your Invitation To Our 30th Anniversary Celebration

Marriage is not a ritual or an end. It is a long, intricate, intimate dance together and nothing matters more than your own sense of balance and your choice of partner.” - Amy Bloom

    Here is a recent photo of us @ Chucky-Cheese’s when we went there with our granddaughter Addy :

       April 21 2009  Today  is our 30th anniversary.  I wanted to do something to mark it.  How does a   little music,  some wine and cheese, and  a couple of choice comments sound?

      First the music. 

      Going to pull the curtain back just a little on our relationship and share “our song”   We just picked it a few years ago. :

 

Next the wine and cheese:

   And finally a couple of thoughts.

  In March I wrote      this letter    to Sharon  (fellow blogger) on marriage    so rather than re-invent the wheel, I”m going to take the easy way out , share that link with you.  I’ll close with a couple of quotes that resonate with me…

____________________________________________

    ” I have no way of knowing whether or not you married the wrong person, but I  do know that many people have a lot of wrong ideas about marriage and what  it takes to make that marriage happy and successful. I’ll be the first to  admit that it’s possible that you did marry the wrong person. However, if
you treat the wrong person like the right person, you could well end up  having married the right person after all. On the other hand, if you marry  the right person, and treat that person wrong, you certainly will have ended  up marrying the wrong person.   I also know that it is far more important to  be the right kind of person than it is to marry the right person. In short,  whether you married the right or wrong person is primarily up to you.”
Zig Ziglar

“One of the great illusions of our time is that love is self-sustaining.
It is not. Love must be fed and nurtured, constantly renewed. That
demands ingenuity and consideration, but first and foremost, it demands time.”
David Mace

     “Common courtesy plays a big role in happy marriages. People who are permanently married are polite to one another. They don’t want to hurt one another’s feelings, and they don’t try to make the other one feel humiliated. People who are married for life are extremely kind to one another.”

___________________________________________________
      “The role of the female in every species is to pick the right mate.   The wrong  males are supposed to be barred from mating and procreating. Nature didn’t  intend human females or females from any other species to “fix” deficient  mates; we’re just supposed to reject them so they don’t pass on their bad
genes.”

     Hope you enjoyed the party-  thanks for coming! DM
