Labor of Love
Here we are some 20 odd years ago, already well into our relationship. Today is our 19th anniversary but we were living in sin for 11 years before that. Having done the math, that is 30 together! Through all the changes; jobs, houses, hair styles, births, deaths, all the stray animals and the stay animals, all the art and music, all the dreams deferred and the dreams realized, we have been the constants in each others lives.
For all you lovers out there, relationships are never easy. Like gardens they need some tending, and yes your hands will get dirty. Our garden hasn’t always been a paradise, even now it is still a work in progress. But we have weeded out our own insecurities and planted trust. We’ve pruned the branches of the “me” tree, and learned to spend more time under the “you” tree. We learned to accept what would flourish and to enjoy the fruits of our labor of love. So Happy Anniversary my love! And here’s to 30 more years of digging in the dirt!
