On Friday, we celebrated our 10th anniversary. My husband had taken Friday and Monday off and we had toyed with the idea of going away. But in the end, we had a lovely day together, even though we had several challenges: our air conditioning decided to quit on the hottest day of the year and a neighbour had severed the Rogers' cable so we had no phone, tv or internet for 2 days. We had to wait for the cable to be repaired on Friday so it was not until after 3 that we were able to leave the hot house! But we wandered and shopped and reminisced.
Our wedding day was special. My husband started the day with dialysis while a group of us decorated the hall. I felt like a princess that day and was blessed to have all our family and friends supporting us as we pledged to each other.
From there we went to Calgary for 2 lovely weeks for our honeymoon. Watching the |Calgary Stampede on tv this weekend took us back to our time there.
Looking back it seems that we have been together a lot longer than 10 years. We have been through a lot - separation, operations, step families and their inherent difficulties, and health issues. But we have dealt with all of these with love, faith and hope.
