Trying to think of something special for our 30th anniversary, here I sit in my well worn recliner, glancing out my front bay window. Spring rains outside are awakening the grass that will soon need to be trimmed. Colorful birds having snacks, flit to various perches surrounding the feeders we keep full of seed. The daffodil blossoms sway in the gentile breeze.
Remembering in my mind that beautiful day, as now the television rambles on through a senseless program. My eyes continue scanning out the window as the birds hop in the green grass dodging between the early spring flowers. This beautiful scene rejuvenates my memory back thirty years. My thoughts reeling, recalling thirty years ago, to the special day of the 19th of April when my fiancee and I wed.
Much like the scenery here now, in Holland the beauty
arched to the sun. While a young beautiful bride and grateful groom held hands walking through the park listening to the direction of our sweet photographer. Now soon the day will be here when my love and I will be celebrating thirty joyous years. For twenty years we endured the hardship of military life walking together through many trials and pleasures. Together we experienced so many great events. Seen so many beautiful treasures of Europe that are now stored in boundless photo books and displayed throughout our modest home.
Trying to come up with some special way to celebrate, I yearn now to have her home beside me. I miss her presence as the frozen ground misses the warmth of the sun. Soon our orchard will be full of beautiful little flowers. Pear blossom’s creamy white as my love’s skin, so soft to the touch. My love’s lips illuminating as the plum’s red petals. I love to watch the pink cherry blossoms as they open revealing tender pink inner folds. Yes it is a shame we are not independently wealthy and my love is at work as I soon will be. Oh the mind wanders when in love.
Searching for answers I logged on to MH and started wondering if any of the MH ladies might have a suggestion? I would love for this anniversary to be special for her.
