An Anniversary Toast to My Beloved of 41 Years

This month we celebrated our wedding anniversary and this is the toast I gave to my husband of 41 years --


THE PERFECT DAY



We met early in the morning, you and I. Even before breakfast, we knew we were going to be together the rest of the day.



Throughout the morning, there were many moments of turmoil, doubt, and uncertainty. But we knew we belonged together and.... together we would overcome.



By mid afternoon, we received two priceless gifts, our children, a son and a daughter. They came into our lives as the blessing we always had hoped for and believed we would have. The afternoon also proved to be tumultuous but our love for each other and for God kept us strong and focused and … together.



We are now entering the evening of that day and we have received five more incredible gifts. A son-in-law, a daughter-in-law and three grandsons.  No matter how many mountains we had to climb, or hurdles to jump, the blessings of the perfect day are many and I raise my glass to you, my love, and our seven beautiful children.



I thank God for each of you and for the perfect day.
